Chocolate M&M Cookies

Chocolate m&m cookies



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, large
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (I used Hersheys special dark)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup M&M’s
  • shot of vodka (optional)






1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars until fluffy.

2. Beat in egg and vanilla until well combined.

3. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together, and add slowly to batter. Mix well.

4. Add M&M’s and mix well.

5. Scoop dough in heaping tablespoons; place approximately 3 inches apart on a lightly greased (or lined with parchment) cookie sheet. Before placing them in the oven, flatten them with either your fingers or the bottom of a drinking glass, much like you would a sugar cookie.

4. Bake for 9-10 minutes.  Let them cool on the cookie sheet for approximately 5 minutes before moving onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

Yield: 24-27 cookies
