EAT | Chocolate Chip m&m Cookies

Hey everyone!  Today, I am sharing my favorite way to make chocolate chip cookies.  I originally got this recipe from my friend Sunnie, and I added my own spin on it to create these.  The reason I think these cookies are so good is because they don’t get flat when you bake them, and they also have M&M’s in them.  They’re amazing!  Let’s get started.

What you need:

  • 2 sticks (one cup) butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup M&M’s 
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Combine butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until smooth.

Add eggs and vanilla and blend until smooth.

Next, I like to mix together my dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.

Add to mixing bowl and mix together until soft dough forms.

Add your M&M’s and chocolate chunks and stir together with a spoon.

Place dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  This will harden the dough up a bit and make it easier to roll into balls.  

After 30 minutes, remove dough and roll into 1 inch balls.  Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  I do a dozen per sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops of the cookies turn slightly brown.

Pour yourself a glass of milk and enjoy!!!

*This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies.  I usually roll out all of the cookies, and then place half of the dough balls in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer to save for another day.  That way, I can have freshly baked cookies anytime!

Thanks for reading!
