BEST M&M Cookies

August 4, 2017Teresa

BEST M&M Cookies really are the B-E-S-T!!! These fantastic cookies start with my amazing version of Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies (copycat recipe) but instead of using chocolate chips, I substituted M&Ms. Oh my, they were heavenly.

Back in July, our church had a Kid’s Fest at a local park. Several thousand people came through all the activities. I recruited several ladies from our church to bake homemade cookies. After being swarmed on Friday, I went home Friday night and most of Saturday and baked an additional six hundred cookies to ensure we had enough for the crowds. I also contacted several others to bring more cookies! Yes, they went FAST!

One of those scrumptious cookies I baked were these BEST M&M Cookies. If I hadn’t been giving them away, I would have eaten an enormous amount of them. 🙂 These cookies were divine. If you need a dynamite cookie for holiday baking, baby showers, backyard BBQs, family reunions or potlucks, I highly recommend these amazing cookies. But better be prepared to make two or three batches. These go fast!

    This recipe was the bomb.com!! Just made a batch and they were so SOFT and DELICIOUS that I had to leave a comment. Although next time I might cut down the sugar 1/4-1/8 cup because they are a tad sweet! 10/10!

    I would like to print the recipe for The Best M&M Cookies but I can’t see where it says to print and it won’t let me copy/paste. Could you help me get the recipe printed?
    Thank you
