Christmas is fast approaching. After today we only have one more cookie. The cookie recipe I am sharing today would be perfect to leave out for Santa with a nice glass of milk. If I were Santa Claus I'd rather enjoy these M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I hope you do too.
I really wanted to make a Chocolate chip cookie for the "6 Week Christmas Cookie Countdown" I feel like they are the most classic cookie. My normal go to Chocolate Cookie is my Grandmas but I don't share that recipe with anyone. It's a secret family recipe and now that my Grandma is no longer with us its even more special to me and I will treasure it forever. So this is what I came up with. It's inspired by this cookie I get from a Chocolate / Sweets shop in a small Colorado mountain town.
Recipe: Pre-Heat Oven: 375 F Bake: 10-11 minutes Makes: 22 - 24 3 1/2 inch cookies
1 Cup Butter, Room temp
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2 1/2 Cups Flour
6 oz Mini Chocolate Chips
1/2 - 3/4 cup M&M's or similar Chocolate Coated Candy
In bowl or stand mixer cream butter and white & brown sugar. Mix until smooth and add eggs. Mix. Add in salt, baking soda and vanilla. Mix through. Then start adding in your flour. Mix in 6 oz. of Mini Chocolate Chips.
I then scooped them out with a medium sized cookie scoop (Approximately 2 tbsp). Once baked should measure 3 1/2 inches. If you'd prefer them smaller that works too, plus it will make more cookies.
I then placed 4-5 M&Ms on top the scooped cookies. Make sure to press them lightly into dough so they stick.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, if you try it I'd love to know. Comment below or tweet me pictures at @ChicCountryGirl
