M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies are deliciously soft and chewy and they’re a favorite during the Holidays!
The candy colors can be swapped for any holiday or occasion! They’re perfect all year round out and especially when you are in the mood for a soft and chewy cookie.
Easy M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies
Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, these cookies are sure to fit! During Valentine’s Day, you can substitute red and green for pink and red.
Great colors for Thanksgiving would be Brown, Red, and Orange. And of course, my favorite, red and green for Christmas! Get creative, this cookie is very versatile to fit whatever your occasion may be.
Getting Perfect M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies
I start by rolling the cookie dough into the same shape balls. Also, in this recipe, I used a little more flour to help make the cookies rise a bit more.
It’ll make them a little taller but before baking, I use the back of a spoon to slightly flatten the tops of these cookies out. It helps shape the cookies into a uniform round shape. It also makes them presentable when giving as gifts during the Holiday season.
