  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup M&Ms (divided ¾ and ¼ cup)


  • Beat softened butter and sugars with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth.
  • Next add in your egg and vanilla extract then mix again on low until combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine your flour, baking soda, and salt. Once combined gradually add this to your wet ingredients. Add in about ¾ of a cup of the dry ingredients at a time to your wet and mix to combine before adding in more.
  • Mix until just combined then add in ¾ cup of M&Ms and fold into batter.
  • This batter could be thick and sticky. Place in the fridge to chill for at least 2-3 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Once chilled scoop out 2 tablespoons of batter and roll into 2-inch balls.
  • Place cookie dough balls on your prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Gently press in remaining M&Ms to the top of each cookie. Carefully not to press down the cookie.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to stand on the pan for 5-10 minutes before serving.


Tip: Flattening the cookies will cause them to spread out more during baking, making them crispier.
