Giant M&M Cookies
Author: Nikki
Big, delicious M&M cookies that the whole family will love!
  • 2 heaping cups flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1½ sticks unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup mini M&Ms
  • 1 cup regular M&Ms
  1. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugars until well combined. Add egg, egg yolk and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Slowly add flour mixture to the we mixture and mix until dough forms. Use hands if needed.
  4. Crush 1 cup of regular M&Ms. Fold in crushed and non-crushed M&Ms to your dough.
  5. Decide how big you would like your cookies. I wanted giant cookies, so I used a large ice cream scoop. With your hand, shape each portion into a ball and then pull into two equal pieces. Turn one piece rough side (what used to be the inside of the ball) down onto the cookie sheet. Put the other piece on top of that, rough side up. Space 1-2 inches apart, depending on how big your cookie is.
  6. Bake large cookies for 12-14 minutes and small cookies for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden. Centers should be soft and puffy. Let cool and enjoy!
