 M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s officially just one week until Christmas! This past weekend was absolutely insane with running here, there, and everywhere for Christmas festivities and to top it all off, I started running a fever Sunday night and later found out I have bronchitis and a severe sinus infection.

Thankfully I’m starting to get back into my routine, but I’m SO ready for Christmas break to officially begin this weekend and to get in some much needed relaxing with my family over the next couple weeks. Sometimes I think our body tells us when we need to slow down, and I for one am going to listen.

Today’s cookie recipe is the last one in this year’s Christmas Cookie Countdown and it is my boys’ absolute favorite – M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies. These chocolate chip cookies with M&M’s are always an annual Christmas cookie tradition in our family and although I’ve variated the recipe before in making these into Magical Peanut Butter M&M Christmas Cookies, they really are just so delicious!

With crispy edges, a soft and chewy center, and delicious M&M’s and chocolate chips in every bite, what’s not to love?! Plus, they’re super easy to make and the kids will love joining in on the holiday baking!

M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you like your cookies to be crispy around the edges, yet soft and chewy in the middle, then these M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies are for you! The secret weapon in these M&M cookies is instant vanilla pudding mix which makes them nice and soft and adds great flavor. I also love using a combination of both dark brown sugar and light brown sugar for great texture and color.

Of course the kids favorite part is always adding in the M&Ms and chocolate chips. We used baking M&Ms for this chocolate chip recipe which are almost mini size, but if you have regular M&M’s, you can always adjust how much you add. I also always like to add a couple on top of each M&M cookie before baking them to make them look even prettier.
