These Homemade M&M Cookies, or as I like to call them Santa’s M&M Cookies, are perfect for the holiday season. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and full of M&M’s, you’ll want to make them year round.

Servings 12 cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup butter soft, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mint M&M Holiday Chocolate save 1/3 cup to top the cookies


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl or cake mixer, beat the butter with the sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla and the egg and beat until they are well incorporated.
  • Add the dry ingredients gradually: flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Mix until you have a sticky dough. Remove and add the chocolate chips and 2/3 of the M&M chocolate and everything together well with your hands or spatula.
  • With an ice cream scoop, divid the dough into 12 pieces and place on a cookie sheet. Add some pieces of M&Ms and Chocolate chips on the top before baking.
  • Bake for 12 minutes on 350 degrees or until the cookies look almost golden. Do not over bake or you will end up with hard cookies.
  • Remove and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes.  You can enjoy them warm if you like soft hot cookies or save them in a can or taper ware for later on.
