A Twist on a M&M’s Christmas Cookie Recipe

5K Flares 5K Flares ×

Something amazing happened while I was baking yesterday…I came up with a new M&M’s Christmas Cookie Recipe (new to me anyway, I am sure someone else has thought of this before) that just about knocked my socks off!

I was making Christmas cookies for my friends and for my daughter’s bus driver and thought I’d try something different than the usual gingerbread cookies or sugar cookies. I bought red and green M&M’s on sale at Walgreens this past week so I thought I’d try making an M&M’s Christmas cookie recipe – everyone loves M&M’s, right?

Right.

So I brought down that heavy Kitchen Aide mixer and began mixing my batter…and when it got to the point in the recipe where I was supposed to add an entire 12 ounce bag of M&M’s, I realized that I had eaten almost half of the bag that I had opened on the counter.

I swear, I thought I’d only grabbed a handful! It must have been about three handfuls!

So…I emprovised and used half of a bag of M&M’s and half of a bag of Nestle Tollhouse mini chocolate chips.

The results? Pretty much the best cookie I’ve ever made in my life. So I want to share them with you!

Chocolate Chip M&M’s Christmas Cookie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of butter (at room temperature)

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups regular all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars, then beat in the egg and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt, then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

Add M&M’s and Mini Chocolate Chips and either mix by hand or mix in the mixer – I mixed them in the mixer and I like the way there were a little bit of broken M&M pieces in the cookies!

Using teaspoons, drop cookies of about one teaspoon onto cookie sheets making them about two inches apart. I used parchment paper over my pan because it was not nonstick – if you aren’t using parchment paper or a nonstick pan, I suggest greasing your cookie sheet lightly.

Bake for 11 minutes for a cookie that is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, or 12-13 minutes for a crispier cookie!

Let cool for about 10 minutes – I just slid the parchment paper off the cookie sheet onto my kitchen table so that I could use the cookie sheet for the next batch immediately.

Enjoy!

    I think that my Nana would have loved this little twist for her Nestle Toll House cookie recipe. The M&Ms really make the cookies look so festive.

      Yes, you SHOULD use a full bag, but I ate quite a few of mine so mine had a little less :) I’ve made the recipe a few times since then and used a full bag of both M&M’s and chocolate chips. They are SOOOO good! :)
