Mini M&M Chocolate Cookies are easy to make and fun to eat for dessert or an after school treat.
Lucky for you, Mr. Flavor Mosaic and I do love desserts and sweet treats, especially cookies. Lucky for you because often I share these recipes with you! See the sacrifices we make for you? 😉
Last week Mr. Flavor Mosaic wanted some chocolate chip cookies, but I was out of chocolate chips. However, we had these mini M&Ms. So instead of just substituting these for chips in chocolate chip cookies (which would have tasted delicious also), I opted to make these big, soft chocolate cookies and add the M&Ms to the batter.
They are very easy to make. I have to say I think I overdid it with the size of the cookies. Next time I will make smaller (regular size) cookies. I wrote up the recipe for regular size cookies instead of these monster cookies. So when you make it, don’t worry if the cookies look smaller than what you see in these photos.
Next time your kids want some cookies, make these for a fun alternative to chocolate chip cookies!
