These Chocolate M&M Cookies are THE BEST! They are easy to make, they're irresistible and they are FUN! Throw in extra M&M's, just 'cause.
I'm one of those moms who enjoys spending time with her boys to an almost annoying degree. With that in mind... it has been one week since the school year ended and I'M GOING CRAZY! My peaceful work-days at home have been abducted by brotherly fighting, pizza sauce being sprayed all over the carpet and a constant stream of friends parading through our home. It's all good. I love my boys dearly and stained carpet will never change that, but it has been an enormous adjustment. One of my tactics for finding peace this week was baking. Of course. Baking always helps.
My boys pretty much jumped over my body like crazed zombies to get to these delicious Chocolate M&M Cookies. The danger level for having these within my grasp was far too high, so I got rid of most of this batch within 20 minutes of them being taken out of the oven.
This is one of those cookie recipes that is impossible to mess up. The batter is forgiving, the recipe is solid and every person you know who is not allergic to chocolate or gluten will swoon. I took the liberty of adding extra (gasp!) M&M's even after I had plopped the dough onto the cookie sheets. One cannot ever have too many M&M's. That's a quote from one of the great philosophers (I can't remember his name).
Another thing I love about these cookies? They are appropriate any time of the year! Summer gatherings, Christmas parties, after school snacks.. yes yes and yes.
