Simple and Delicious M&M Cookies

My kids had been asking for Chocolate chip cookies for a long time so the other day I decided we would go ahead and make some cookies.  We ran into a problem when we realized that we did not have any chocolate chips in the house.  We did though have a bag of M&M’s that one of my children got as part of a Christmas Gift from a family member and decided to substitute them in place of the chocolate chips.  They turned out delicious and now we have one of our new favorite cookie recipes here to share with all you! 🙂

Simple and Delicious M&M Cookie Recipes


  • 1 cup butter ((I use Earth Balance Dairy Free Butter))
  • 2/3 cups Organic Brown Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg (Preferably Free Range)
  • 2 cups Unbleached Flour
  • 2/3 cups Sugar (You can substitute for a sugar substitute like Splenda, etc.)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Non-Imitation)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • I packet King Size M&M Candies


Step 1
In a large bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, and vanilla until it is mixed well
Step 2
Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt one at a time mixing in between each to make it easier.
Step 3
Add in the M&M's to the dough.
Step 4
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Step 5
Use your hands to form cookies into a ball and place on a cookie sheet. Leave some space between them because they will spread as cooking.
Step 6
Bake for about 10 minutes or until they are starting to brown. Enjoy!


  1. These cookies looks awesome! I could really go for one (or a dozen) right now!

  2. These look yummy! I just picked up M&M’s at Targets after-Christmas-sale specifically to make M&M cookies with. Your recipe looks delish! Found this post at the Whatever Goes Wednesdays link party! Happy New Year!

  3. M and M’s to the rescue. Great idea. I want some of those cookies. I like M&M’s because the colors can fit any holiday.

    My daughter is a huge fan of M&M cookies and now I feel bad for forgetting them in this year’s Christmas cookie baking. Will have to make soon. I recently added “Powered by GetMeCooking” to my page for the handful of chocolate recipes I share and it worked out pretty well for the first time Friday. Do you like it, too?
    Found you via the Meet the Neighbors Link-Up. Will like your social media, too.
    Take care,

  6. Like the idea of substituting the ingredients to be more healthy and still get a treat like my favorite M & M cookies. This is really a simple way to make healthier treats like you say. Found you on Meet The Neighbors, thanks for sharing with us.

  7. Looks good – it’s always fun to do a little something different for the holidays
    It’s another great weekend with the #HomeMattersParty Merry Christmas to you!

  8. M & M adds a nice crunchy to these cookies I guess. But will it become gooey once baked?? Just wondering as I have never tasted a M&M in cookie 🙂 Looks delicious though. Wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy new year to you and your family.

  9. We love M&M cookies at our house. They are so cheerful and yummy. #HomeMattersParty

  10. Those look yummy!! Pinned it to try one day! #HomeMattersParty
