Let me start off by saying that I hate m&m cookies. It’s something about the m&m’s going into the oven and then coming out changed and I think I don’t like the candy shell in my soft chewy cookie. I lived to eat my words. I found this recipe and it first caught my eye because of how pretty the cookie looked even though I wouldn’t make them because they had M&M’s in them but when I saw the recipe, the woman who made them said that she hated m&m cookies too. Now she had my full attention. She said that she made them by accident but they were AMAZING!!!! And that they were. Super soft and Chewy and the m&m’s stayed perfect. Pretty and tasty! The whole package.

M&M Cookies
  • ¾ cup butter, cold
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 11/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box Instant French Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1½ cup Mini M&Ms, plus ¼ cup more for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In bowl of stand mixer combine butter and brown sugar, beating until combined.
  3. Add in egg and vanilla and continue mixing until smooth, scraping sides as necessary. Mix in French vanilla pudding, baking soda and salt.
  4. Finally add in the flour and beat until just combined.
  5. Stir in M&Ms.
  6. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. CookieonCookieSheet
  7. Add a few mini m&m’s to the top of each cookie.
  8. Press the top of each cookie down slightly to make the m&m’s stick and flatten it a tiny bit because they don’t loose their shape while baking.BakedonCookieSheet
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes until golden around the edges.
  10. Allow to cool on baking sheet for one minute and then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. You can see the ones that I didn’t garnish or flatten vs. the ones I did. It’s totally up to you. Purely aesthetics, it all tastes the exact same! You may wanna double the batch because they go so quickly. Enjoy!
mmcookiesNote: mini chocolate chips would be heavenly in here as well if you couldn’t find or don’t want to use mini m&m’s.  Mini m&m’s can be found at Target or Smart & Final
