Not long ago I wanted an easy treat for my family. After checking what I currently have in my pantry, in the form of chocolate chips, nuts, coconut and other “mix-ins” I settled on these Ultimate Chocolate M&M Cookies.
After a long week, my family was joyful to come home and find these cookies in our cookie jar. Both of my boys endured numerous quizzes and tests as well as a special school project. I thought we were due for something sweet!
These ultimate chocolate M&M cookies are chocolaty good with cocoa and chocolate candies. If you want a little more texture add a cup of nuts, either walnuts or pecans. We think they are yummy just the way they are.
