Perfect M&M Cookies


Perfect M&M Cookies


These cookies are the perfect M&M cookies. They are loaded with milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and M&M’s. I started with the cookie dough from my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies and added a combo of milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips along with the M&M’s. The white chocolate chips don’t get as soft and melty as the milk chocolate chips, so you have three different textures in these M&M cookies. Sweet white chocolate chips that hold their shape nicely, soft and melty milk chocolate chips and a little crunch from the M&M’s. These M&M cookies are big and beautiful too. Perfect for gift giving or the a holiday treat! I’ve used the Valentine’s Day M&M’s, but these would be perfect with any color!
