  • Cups M&M Minis
  • Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ¾ Cup White Granulated Sugar
  • Cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Melted Butter Room Temperature
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • First, gather all your ingredients to make M&M Cookies.
  • Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Put this bowl aside for later.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the melted butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Whisk for 5 minutes on low or until well blended.
  • Next, Add 1 egg to the bowl and beat batter until egg is mixed through.
  • Crack the second egg into the bowl and add the vanilla extract. Beat well until all the ingredients are blended.
  • Add the dry bowl that was set aside earlier, slowly introduce the flour mixture into the wet batter. Beat the batter for 3-5 minutes on low to fully combine the ingredients.
  • Fold 1 cup of M&M minis into the batter. Be gentle and try not to break the shell of the M&M's. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease a pan. Remove from the fridge and start scooping your batter onto the parchment paper. I use a 1¼ inch cookie scoop to measure my batter. Place cookies 1 - 1½ inches apart. Use the ½ cup of M&M's to gently press into the tops of the batter balls.
  • Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling rack and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Cookies will get slightly firmer over the next hour as they cool.
