Mine didn’t come out as lusciously thick and chewy as the picture where I got the recipe from.  I’m not a huge crispy cookie person, although I did make some ice cream sandwiches with these, and they were pretty darn tasty!

Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies

Found at: Culinary Cory

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 6 oz. milk chocolate chips
  • 8 oz. M&Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter and shortening until light and fluffy.  Then add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.   Gradually add in flour, baking soda and salt, but once it is just combined stop mixing.  Fold in chocolate chips and M&Ms by hand.

Using about 1 Tbsp. of dough (small cookie scoop), place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.  Bake 6 to 8 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through.   Allow the cookies to cool completely on the cookie sheet.
