M&M Chocolate Christmas Cookies . . . soft, fudgy, and loaded with chocolate chips and M&M’s, these cookies are sure to become a favorite!
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!
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.
