Forget boring old chocolate chip, there’s a new sheriff in town! Prepare for an explosion of flavor with M&M Cookies that melt in your mouth like tiny bursts of rainbow happiness. So get your apron on and let’s get baking. 


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups M&M candies


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Cream softened butter with both sugars in a bowl until fluffy, then incorporate eggs one at a time, adding vanilla extract. 
  3. Separately, mix flour, baking soda, and salt, then slowly blend with the wet ingredients. Fold in M&M candies evenly. For extra visual appeal, save some M&Ms to press on top of the cookies just before baking.
  4. Scoop dough onto baking sheets, spacing them out. Top with extra M&Ms. 
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden but centers are soft. Keep a close eye on them. Remember, the secret to soft cookies is pulling them out of the oven just before they look done.
