What’s the Project? These chocolate peanut butter M&M cookies are a perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter with candy pieces. They are soft and chewy and you will want to eat them all when you bake them.
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 and they taste so so good!
Don’t those look good?
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!
You’re definitely going to want to make these right away!
Chocolat Peanut Butter M&M Cookies:
Chocolate Peanut Butter M&M Cookies
- 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!
I hope you love these chocolate peanut butter M&M cookies as much as I do!

What size bag of peanut butter M&Ms? I have a huge “party size” on hand at home anc am guessing it is way too big…. how many ounces would you say you used?
I think it’s about 10 oz
How many cookies does one batch make? I want to make them for a cookie exchange.
About 2-3 dozen.
