Soft Chocolate M&M Cookies

Soft Chocolate M&M CookiesI have a thing about M&M cookies…something magical happens to M&M’s when they’re baked. I can’t eat a bag of M&M’s (well, the crispy ones I could), but I could eat a ton of M&M cookies. I tried this recipe first with peanut butter chips, and it was amazing. They were a little too sweet, so I changed that this time around, and added mini M&M’s to make them irresistible. The chocolate cookie is soft and melts in your mouth like a brownie. I’m hooked!

I honestly love these kind of requests. They’re vague enough where I can play around in the kitchen a bit but specific enough to narrow my experiments. Mom and Dad eat pretty healthy and love homemade treats. We had all been to Maui in January, so these cookies were a hit!
