Chocolate M&M Cookies


  • 1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 Cup mini M&Ms


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed until well combined (about 2 minutes). Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined. Scrape down the sides.
  2. In a medium separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add into the mixing bowl and mix until just combined – stir in M&M candies.
  3. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (330 for convect bake). With a cookie scoop, scoop cookies onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet about 2-inches apart. Bake for 7-9 minutes (cookies will be a little undercooked, but should be able to hold their shape after resting on the pan for 2 minutes after baking).
  5. Enjoy!
