  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup baking M&M's



  1. The first thing you should do is pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Next, you should add the softened butter to a mixing bowl, and add in the sugars. Cream this all together for about 2 minutes.

  3. Then, add in your egg. Mix this for about 1 minute. The next thing you should do is add in your vanilla extract, milk, and baking soda.

  4. Once these have been mixed into the cookie batter, you will add in your flour. I like to add in 1/2 cup at a time, scraping the edge of the bowl after each addition. This ensures that all the flour gets incorporated fully.

  5. The final step to making these chocolate chip m&m cookies is to add in the chocolate chips and m&ms. Now I used m&ms found in the baking aisle so they are a little smaller than a traditional m&m, but any m&m would work.

  6. You will want to use a rubber spatula to mix these into your dough so that they don't get crushed.

  7. Roll out the cookie dough into 1 inch - 1 1/2 inch balls. Then, flatten them with the palm of your hand. This helps them flatten out faster and cook evenly.

  8. Bake these cookies for 8-10 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Depending on how big you make the cookies, it should make 12-18 cookies.
