  • In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the M&M's ™.

  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Be careful not to overbake, the cookies will be puffed up when they are done, but flatten when cool. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

This recipe is sooooo good! It's been a week since I have made them and we're all having withdrawls. My three comments are this: 1) My cookies looked quite underdone when I cooked them at the suggested time but take them out anyways because after sitting out of the oven for 15 minutes they are absolutely perfect. 2) I did spray the sheet lightly and it didn't hurt them. 3) My cookies were much more chocolate looking than the picture on the recipe.

I would have rated it 0 stars if that was an option. This recipe has way to much butter and needs more flour. It is too greasy and i had to put it in a pie pan and make it into a cake form. When I made this it looked nothing like the picture. It turned out as a big pile of gunk. Read More

I had a very hard time with these. First of all mix in a large bowl (my medium bowl was almost overflowing). Second I don't believe I cooked them long enough and getting them off of the cookie sheet was impossible. I also didn't use peanut butter m&m s but I don't think that would make the difference.

I think someone is playing a joke on us. I don't think that picture is actually from this recipe. Mine turned out like big thin manhole covers that stuck to the parchment paper. Sorry kids I can't give it a good rating. Read More

Try not melting the butter! It will make your dough way too soft Read More

I was wanting to make a basic batch of M&M cookies and this looked like a great one to try. I omitted the cocoa powder and used plain M&Ms instead of peanut butter ones. The batter was too runny and the batter spread in the oven. I tried adding more flour and after trying to cook one cookie it still ran. I saved the dough - and I plan to add even more flour. I think there may be too much butter and maybe 1 egg is better than 2. So don't make my mistake of changing the recipe. Read More

If they are cooked just long enough they are nice and chewy. If they cook for the full time they are crispy. It's the melted butter. To make a thicker or 'fluffy' cookie try softened butter instead. This is a GREAT base batter recipe. Great for sugar cookies too! Really really tasty. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Everyone really liked these cookies. I did make some changes though. I used Reese's pieces in stead of M&M's. I also didn't want to add coco powder so I just added extra flour and I also used 3/4s cup sugar. They turned out nice a fluffy and very soft. I topped them off with peanut butter chips. Read More
