 M&M chocolate cookies

I love a good chocolate chip M&M cookie, but one day I was craving something even more chocolatey, so I decided to try a chocolate version. It’s a pretty close competition, but I think I might like this version even more!

M&M chocolate cookies with red and green mini m&m's

They turned out nice and chewy, and perfectly soft. They are loaded with chocolate chips, and the red and green M&M’s make them just perfect for Christmas. I opted to use the mini M&M’s this time, and they are perfect because you get more in every bite.

I don’t know anyone who can resist an M&M cookie, and these would look especially pretty on a Christmas goodie tray. And of course they would make great neighbor gifts!

How to make Chocolate M&M Cookies:

Cream softened butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl till creamy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Sift together flour, cocoa, soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in with chocolate chips and M&M’s. I used the mini holiday M&M’s.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls (or roll in balls), and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. I like to press additional m&m’s into the top of the cookie dough balls.

Bake at 350° for about 9-10 minutes.

  1. This is my go to recipe any time of the year! I can’t resist them. Perfect recipe… so delicious, perfect texture. Also works without the chocolate chips.. but if you love chocolate more power to you:)

    • I agree, they are way too good to only be made at Christmas time! I actually do sometimes leave out the chips and add more M&M’s. My kids like them that way, but I like them with some of the ooey gooey melted chips. 🙂

  2. I love how these are a little crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I wanted a chocolate based cookie to add mint chips too, so I replaced the vanilla extract with mint and M&M’s with mint chips and they remind me of the Andes mints I love.

  3. Soooo good! Moist, chewy and well balanced flavors. I thought they might be too sweet since I had to make extra wet batter (was too dry when I originally mixed the wet and dry ingredients). Came out great! Made ours bigger so had to cook longer. Used mini chips and M&Ms. Won best cookie in family cookie contest!!

  4. These look so easy to make! Yummy!
