Super Addicting M&M's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Needless to say, the best part about homemade cookies, besides taste, is that sweet aroma filling the entire house. Nostalgic to a point, after all, I did grow up with these colorful M&M's chocolate chips. Adding these chocolate bits to cookies and baking them till the middle cracks, oh my, just by the thought of it can make my mouth watering.

M&M's chocolate chip cookies -

Ingredients (about 10 to 12 pieces)?

  • 1/2 cup or 115 grams unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup M&M's chocolate chips (plus more for extra toppings)
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chip 


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit/190 degrees Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Keep the butter in room temperature till softened, with texture assembles semi-melted ice cream.

In a large mixing bowl, I used the mixer bowl directly, add in softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Mix till combined.

Break in one egg, also add in the vanilla extract. Mix again till combined.

Sift in flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix till combined.

Fold in both the chocolate chips and M&M's colorful chocolate chips. Transfer the entire dough to the fridge before baking. Wait till the dough hardens a bit, about 10 minutes. 

When ready, scoop the dough to the baking sheet. This recipe yields about 10 to 12 cookies, so even out the dough into individual balls and slightly press them down. Insert some extra colorful M&M's chocolate chips onto the cookie dough for an even better visual effect. On top of that, the more chocolate chips the merrier. 

Remember to space out each dough because they'll flatten out a little during the baking process.

Into the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or till the edges turned slightly browned. It took about 10 minutes for my batch. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set the cookies on a rack to cool down. However, be careful of little thieves that might steal these fresh cookies once out of the oven.

Absolutely loving that fresh off the oven smell. A little vanilla, heated sugar, and semi-melted chocolate, all these wonderful scent lingers in every corner of the house. It's like my homemade aroma, the kind that gives comfort, and perhaps tickling sweet cravings.

Some people like to wait till the cookies hardened before eating them. However, I do adore the soft texture when fresh off the heat, with still warm and melty oozing chocolate throughout. Once the cookies cool down, the texture still remain on the softer side for this recipe.

On a side note, this recipe only yields 10 to 12 pieces cookies, which was gone in the blink of an eye. So if you can, or perhaps for myself too, try to double up the ingredients and make two dozen cookies at once. Trust me, the more the merrier.
