These cookies have been a long time coming. But they were worth the wait!
For months now, every time I’ve asked my son what kind of cookies he would like, he says the same thing – M&M cookies.
Bakery Style M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies have become his favorite cookies, and there’s a good reason for that.
The cookies are soft and chewy with great flavor! And they’re packed with candy and chocolate, which is hard to beat.
One note about this recipe – please don’t skip the chilling time. It’s easy to be tempted to skip it when you want cookies 5 minutes ago, but the cookies will bake out and be flat without it.
