  • BEST M&M cookies- super soft, chewy, crispy edges and full of chocolate! Taste like they came straight from a bakery!

    It’s no secret that I love chocolate chip cookies. They are my weakness. Throw some M&M’s in the mix and I’m in heaven. BEST M&M cookies- super soft, chewy, crispy edges and full of chocolate! Taste like they came straight from a bakery!

    There’s just something about a warm chocolate chip M&M cookie that reminds me of my childhood. At my school growing up they used to sell M&M cookies on Friday to raise money for the school and it was always such a treat when my mom let me buy one.

    Over the years I have been working on perfecting the perfect ones, and these are in my opinion, the BEST M&M cookies! What makes them so yummy? They are thick and chewy, yet super soft on the inside while staying crisp around the edges. They also have the perfect ratio of chocolate chip to M&M’s. The more chocolate the better, right? ;)
