Magical Peanut Butter M&M Christmas Cookies

The holiday season always seems to fly by way too quickly, which is why I always make it a priority to spend time with my family while doing our favorite activities and traditions.

So far we’ve watched lots of Christmas movies including Elf and Home Alone, made the cutest pinecone ornaments for our tree (you can check those out over here), and just this past weekend I finally managed to get all of our presents wrapped! #feelingaccomplished

But one of our absolute favorite family traditions is of course baking together and these Peanut Butter M&M Cookies always make the top of our holiday baking list!

As a huge peanut butter lover, I’m a total fan of these “magical” peanut butter M&M Christmas cookies which have the absolute perfect flavor combo! Beyond that, I just adore how the red and green M&Ms make the cookies so festive and pretty!

By the way, these cookies were named by my 5 and 7 year old who claims the cookies give them magical powers after eating them. πŸ˜‰

While I’ll let you be the judge of whether or not they give you magical powers, I can pretty much guarantee that if you love peanut butter, chocolate chips, and the best cookie dough around, then you’ll be in seventh heaven while eating these cookies!

    1. Hi Sheila! No, this particular recipe only uses peanut butter M&M’s and you don’t add any extra peanut butter in them. However, if you want double the peanut butter flavor, I recommend using this recipe for your cookie base and then subbing either half or all the chocolate chips for peanut butter M&M’s. Enjoy!
