Where are my peanut butter M&M fans at? They are my go to road trip snack and one of the only candies I actually like. I wanted to create a cookie with them but didn’t want it to be a peanut butter cookie but rather a chocolate chip cookie with the addition of peanut butter M&Ms so that there was just a hit of peanut butter flavor but not an overwhelming amount of peanut butter.
These cookies are one of my new favorites. I know I say that every time I have a new cookie recipe but I’m really not kidding. They are the perfect snack when I’m craving something with chocolate and peanut butter. Try them next time you are in the mood to bake cookies!
Tips & Tricks:
- I know its obnoxious to have to chill the dough before you bake them but its a critical step and really important so don’t skip it! It allows the butter in the dough to harden again so that the cookies don’t bake completely flat.
- You want your butter to still be slightly cold and not completely softened. I like to take it out about 30 minutes before I am ready to start making the cookies.
- You can substitute any flavor M&M you want, get creative! I think these would be so good with the caramel M&Ms!
