M&M Cookies

Yummy yum! As I prepare for this coming week extravaganza I decided to make some cookies to take with us. We will be taking my dad to the beach for his 60th birthday and Coopers 2nd birthday. We wanted to do something fun and memorable. We will be taking off for 5 days and enjoying lots of good food and entertainment with the family.

I am trying to make as much food for us as possible without over doing it. My sweet mom will be helping out as well and it’s greatly appreciated. :) Thanks mom!

My father-in-law gave us three large bags of M&M’s as he was overly stocked for his wife before she passed away. She loved M&M’s and they were easy for her to eat. He shared in the abundance of M&M’s with us this past weekend which sparked my desire for M&M Cookies.


  • 2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups M&M’s

Fold in M&M’s.


Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

These cookies freeze nicely as well.
