This is such a classic cookie in general, but I love to make M&M’s Cookies with the red and green M&M’s for the holidays. Way back in the day when mom and I started making Christmas cookies, these were always on the list. You know how I like to change up the list every year and make new varieties, so I didn’t give them much thought…until this year. Wow, I really did forget how darn delicious they are! It’s that brown sugar in the recipe that does the trick I think. I also love that candy crunch. This cookie just might make the list every year from now on.
So, how’s it taste?
If you love chocolate chip cookies, you’ll love this one, too. It’s pretty much the same tasty cookie only subbing M&M’s for the chocolate chips. There’s something about that crunch from the candy-coated chocolate that I just love. Using the red and green M&M’s makes me so happy! Our cookies spread a bit more than I would have liked, but I forgot to do the chilling step, heh. Oh well, still tasted fantastic and now I have an excuse to bake more!
