While munching on some peanut butter M&M's, I got to wondering what kind of cookie I could make with them. Why of course! A chocolate batter would compliment these M's famously.
And then the Chocolate Peanut Butter M&M Cookie was born.
Enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 and arrange the shelving so you have access to the middle of the oven.
  2. Cream the butter and brown sugar; approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Add egg, molasses and vanilla and blend.
  4. Add cocoa powder, baking soda and flour; mix till incorporated.
  5. ** Note***
    I used parchment paper but it is not necessary. I also worked in batches to keep an eye on the progress the cookies baked.
    ****
    Using a tablespoon/mellon baller/small icecream scooper, place a generous tablespoonful on your sheet. Spacing them an inch 1/2 apart. Press in your M&M's. I chose to do 3 for each cookie and it worked perfectly.
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes. Let them cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the pans.
    Grab a glass of milk and Enjoy!
