I baked again. I just can’t help it. I have been trying to think of a fun cookie I could make for Fall and when I walked past the Peanut Butter M&Ms the other day at the store, they jumped off the shelf and told me to bake them into a chocolate peanut butter cookie. So I tried it and guess what? It turned out great! Here’s the final product-Chocolate Peanut Butter M&M Cookies:
It’s a chocolate cookie base, but don’t be deceived-there’s peanut butter baked in there too! And then throw in some of Peanut Butter M&Ms and chocolate chips and you have a perfect cookie!
Chocolat Peanut Butter M&M Cookies:
Ingredients: (print button at bottom of post)
- 1 C butter
- 1 C sugar
- 1 C brown sugar
- 1/2 C cocoa
- 3/4 C peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/2 C flour
- 1 C chocolate chips
- 1 bag peanut butter M&Ms
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine butter and sugars and mix. Add in eggs, cocoa and peanut butter and mix till smooth. Add baking soda, salt and vanilla along with flour. Then mix in chocolate chips and about 2/3 bag of M&Ms.
Roll into balls that are about 1 inch. Grab some of your remaining M&Ms and place a few on the top of each cookie dough ball. (This will just make them look pretty when they are done.)
Bake for 8-10 minutes. (I do 9 minutes exactly in my oven.)
When you take the cookies out of the oven, if they need to be flattened a little, gently press them down with your hand or a hot pad.
And then eat them up!
