I have been trying to bake something once a week for my husband staff at the hospital. I wanted to bake something Easter theme this week…but I didn’t want to bake a cake because I wanted something that was easy so they can just grab and go. I didn’t wanted him to have to deal with cutting the cake or having to serve it. I was gonna make cupcakes but I figure M&M chocolate chip cookies would be the best sweet treat to bring. I added a few of these Easter color M&M just to make it festive 😉

Hoping everyone is doing something fun for Easter. We will be dying Easter eggs Thursday and I will be attempting to bake a coconut cake this week also.  What are you going to be doing this week??

Chewy M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 stick melted unsalted butter
  • 2 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&M Easter color

Instructions
 

  • Preheat OVEN to 350°F.
    In a big bowl add in the all purpose flour, salt, and baing soda. Set aside.
    In a kitchen aid mixer.. cream the 2 sugars with the melted butter until its creamy then add in the 2 eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Next, add in the dry ingredients and mix for about 5 minutes until everything is incorporated...remember to scrape the sides down. Once everything is incorporated.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and mix for another minute or so. You don't want to over mix.
  • Using a medium size icecream scoop. Scoop the dough onto a prepared baking sheet (line the baking sheet with parchment paper). Make sure that the dough is about 2inch apart.
  • Taking your finger and flatten the dough out a little. Next, carefully place a few M&M candies (make sure the letter "M" is not showing) on the cookie dough. I only place around 4-5 candies on each 😉
  • Bake at 350°F for about 10-12 minutes. Until the top is a light golden brown color.
  • Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  • ENJOY!!!
