It's fun to share these soft, fudgy Chocolate M&M Cookies, or you can make them for a quick baking project.  


– 1 & 3/4 cups (210g) all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup (42g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened – 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar – 1/2 cup (100g) firmly packed light brown sugar – 2 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1 cup M&M

Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.  

Step 1 


Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar until frothy with a medium-speed electric mixer. After adding each egg, stir well. Mix in vanilla.  

Step 2

Lower mixer speed. Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just incorporated or a few flour streaks remain.  

Step 3

Mix in M&Ms gently. You can add a few on the outside of rolled cookie dough balls before baking.  

Step 4

Cover and chill cookie dough for 30–60 minutes until cool and handleable. Heat the oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment or silicone.  

Step 5

Roll 2 teaspoons of dough into balls using a #30 scoop. Place them on prepared pans with 2 inches between each cookie. Place reserved M&Ms outside cookies.  

Step 6

Bake one pan at a time until cookies are set, 8–10 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the pan on a wire rack for 5–10 minutes.   

Step 7

Then carefully remove the cookies from the pan to cool on a wire rack.
