Double Chocolate M&M Cookies are thick and soft and have lots of chocolate flavor and oodles of M&Ms and are sure to be a favorite in your cookie jar.
These Double Chocolate M&M Cookies have both cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate chips added to the batter. The M&Ms melt a little creating a fantastically fudgy cookie.
To prevent the cookies from spreading out too much, refrigerate the dough for 1 hour before baking.
You can use either mini baking M&Ms or regular M&M candies.
I like to add more M&M candies to decorate each cookie right when I take them out of the oven. You just can’t have too many M&Ms. That way there’s no need to examine all the cookies to find the one with the most M&Ms before you choose the one you want. They are all fully loaded with M&Ms.
