M&M Funfetti Cookies

December 27, 2014Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2014

M&M Funfetti Cookies are incredibly spectacular. Here is my last Christmas cookie recipe for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza, 2014. This delectable cookie is filled with both sprinkles and M&M’s for a wonderful, chocolaty flavor that’s heavenly.

This basic chocolate chip cookie recipe is upgraded to spectacular when you use M&M’s instead of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bars! Just saying. Sprinkles provide beauty as well as tiny bursts of flavor! The combination is deadly if you’re trying to watch your weight! M&M Funfetti Cookies are so good it’s hard to stop at just one.

When I took Christmas gifts up to John’s office a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to include some additional Christmas cookies because they enjoy the treats. I had so many M&M’s left over from Christmas cookie baking that I decided to make M&M Gooey Butter Cake Bars and these marvelous cookies. Needless to say, the cookies were a big hit, and the gals in John’s office oohed and ahhhed over all the cookies as much as any of the other gifts.

These are delicious cookies for holiday baking, tailgating parties, birthdays or special occasions. Of course, it goes without saying that if you love chocolate, these festive M&M Funfetti Cookies are sure to be a delight. They have great texture and, really, who can resist M&M’s? These cookies don’t take all that long to make either.

I made whopper-sized cookies so mine took a little longer to bake than most cookies. If yours are smaller make sure you reduce the baking time. If you have leftover M&M candy from the Christmas season, this is a great way to use them up! That is, if you don’t eat them all before baking the cookies!
