Soft and Chewy M&M Cookies - this treat recipes is always a hit and easy to make!

I LOVE me some good cookies! This week’s M&M Cookies recipeย is so easy and fun! It’s always a FAVORITE with the kiddos {even with the adults!!} And what’s great about this recipe is that it’s quick and the cookies ALWAYS turn out soft. ๐Ÿ™‚

We’ve always loved M&M Cookies in our home and the kids love that they can help by adding the M&MS on top before they get baked. I liked that it’s a combination of cookie and candy, and what’s not to love about that?!

BEST M&M cookie recipe

YUMMY! I will admit that I usually prefer Chocolate Chip Cookies, but there is just something so yummy about adding some candy-coated chocolate to these treats. And I LOVE more than anything that you can color coordinate them for holidays (like the Christmas version below) and events depending on the colors of M&Ms you use (And we know that M&Ms now come in every color, which makes it that much better)!

YUMMY White Chocolate M&M Cookies - these are so good!

You can also modify it to your liking. My hubby loves White chocolate more than regular Chocolate so I also made a White Chocolate Chip M&M Cookie version by adding 1 cup of white chocolate chips, and white Chocolate M&Ms on top – EASY!!!

    I just made some similar cookies. I LOVE cookies…but you know this. And i love OLD people too =)

    Bwahaha! Love that video! And thanks for the ceiling fan tip. I totally need to do that. This summer when I turned our fan on my 3 year old said "What!? It's snowing inside!!" ๐Ÿ™‚ Oops. (And gross, yes, I know.)


    I love that video! "You do more things on accident than most people do on purpose!" ha ha ha! Goes to show you don't change much on the inside as you get older.


    I've seen the link for that video before, but this was my first time watching. Love it!And those cookies look yummy!

    I made these cookies for my wedding and they were awesome! I used them on my cookie and candy bar. I’ll be blogging about this recipe soon!

    Thank you for the recipe! I REALLY dislike making cookies, mostly because they never turn out for me. I prefer a nice chewy cookie, with a teeny crunch on the outside. And I haven’t found the perfect recipe yet. I think I have! These are DELICIOUS! I used the fall colored M&M’s. They’re perfectly chewy, with great flavor. Thanks!

      Lil' Luna

      Your comment made my day, Erica!! SO glad you like them. My hubby likes the cookies the same way as you… soft but a tid crunch on the outside. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure they looked great with the Fall Color M&Ms!! Thanks for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚


    Just wanted to drop you a note that I just made your cookies last night and they turned out so well! Used christmas m&ms and put them in the mailbox for the mail person. Thank you!

      Lil' Luna

      YAY!! So glad you liked them. And your mailman is a lucky person!! Have a very Merry Christmas!


    These are possibly the best cookies I have ever baked!

      Lil' Luna

      YAY!! I love hearing that. They’re definitely a favorite of ours too and the WHOLE family loves them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you can find other recipes here on the site that you will love also. ๐Ÿ™‚


    These cookies turned out great! I reduced the oil by 1/2 and they were super yummy. I’ll use this recipe again with chocolate chips.

      Lil' Luna

      GREAT!! That makes me happy! Thanks so much for letting me know!


    I am making these for a school project, and i need to know what they should taste like and what the texture should be. Can you help me?

      Lil' Luna

      Not sure what you are looking for, but they taste like a regular cookie with m&m’s, chopped and whole in it. We love these cookies! They are soft, also with a crunch. Hope that helps!!


        as in regular cookie don’t you mean like a sugar cookie or something different

          Lil' Luna

          It’s not like a sugar cookie, more like chocolate chip ๐Ÿ™‚


    I have never posted a comment on a recipe before, but these taste just like the ones you would buy at the store… simply amazing!

    Lynn Bast

    I just made a double batch for Christmas! They look so festive! I know everyone will love them! On to peanut butter with Hershey Kisses!

    Regina Giron

    Could I maybe place the dough in the fridge, if I donโ€™t want to make so many at one time? Would they still come out good the next day?

      Kristyn Merkley

      They should. I usually make them right as I make the dough, but I would just store it air-tight & it should be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rodney Rosario

    Great recipe, cookies turned out perfect!!! Nice and fluffy!!!!

      Kristyn Merkley

      Yay! Thank you for trying them & for letting me know! Glad you liked them ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ashlea Shebelski

    We had a blast making these cookies! They turned out great and delicious! We made ours a little thicker so they took longer in our old oven, but were a great hit. I know the little boy will love them!

      Kristyn Merkley

      Yay!! It’s fun making cookies with others ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for letting me know!

    This recipe looks so yummy. I’m about to try it now but I’m wondering if I can sub more butter for the oil? I am in Colorado and have a business selling “infused” baked goods. I bake a plethora of things but they must use butter, as it is the ingredient that is infused. I’m excited to try this recipe with our customers. All our products only get sold to verified adults and both my kitchen and products are inspected by the State. Please don’t judge, we are a very responsible, ethical and professional business.

      Kristyn Merkley

      I am sure you can, though I have not substituted it. I’d love to know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚

    Vickey White

    WOW my new favorite cookie! I love to bake and mostly I make cookies, I was looking for a new recipe for my sisters birthday.

    I can say I will be making these for every family holiday.

    Note I made a double batch LOL to share with more people, added 8 oz bag of walnuts and a full bag of mini chocolate chips.


      Kristyn Merkley

      Woohoo!! Love to hear that! These really are the best! Thank you for sharing that ๐Ÿ™‚
