I wanted to make some deep dark chocolatey cookies for Christmas. I used the base recipe that I made up for triple chocolate oat coconut cookies and switched out the mix in’s for Christmas m&ms and white chocolate! Ta-Da!
These cookies are soft, rich chocolately and delicious! I just tossed all the m&ms in there for a
hurried rustic look. If you want them to look prettier, save about 1/2 a cup and after you scoop out the dough, press the m&ms on the top of your dough before baking. Voila! It will look beautiful! (But in case you were wondering, either way tastes absolutely wonderful!)
Triple Chocolate M&M Cookies
from Hoping in God
- 1/2 c. melted bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 sticks salted butter
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 T. vanilla
- 2 1/2 c. flour
- 3/4 c. cocoa powder (I used half dark, half regular)
- 1 t. baking powder
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/2 t. sea salt
- 1 c. white chocolate chips
- 2 1/4 c. m&ms (roughly one large bag)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a silpat mat or parchment paper.
- Melt chocolate in microwave. Melt for about 30 seconds, then stir vigorously for about 15 seconds. Do this as many times as you need to until chocolate is smooth and melted. DO NOT over cook. Set aside.
- Cream butter in mixer. Add in brown sugar and white sugar and cream together until fluffy – about 5 minutes. Add in eggs and extra yolk, beating well after each addition.
- Add in vanilla and melted chocolate and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Sift in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda. Using the lowest setting on your mixer or a wooden spoon, mix together just until no more flour streaks remain and dough is a dark brown color.
- Mix in white chocolate chips and m&ms. The batter is very thick so you may need to use your hands to fully combine.
- Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until tops look dry and set. Don’t over bake or these will be dry. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
