Mint Chocolate M&M Cookies

Bruce and I had a ton of candy left over from our wedding.

Like, literally, a ton.

Okay, not literally.  But it was a lot.

So we decided to make cookies with some it, and we gave away the rest of it.

We ended up making some Mint Chocolate M&M Cookies, which were frankly delicious.

Mint Chocolate M&M Cookies


2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. plus 4 Tbs cocoa powder
2 tsp cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c. butter (room temperature)
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350.

Sift flour, cocoa, cornstarch, soda and salt together to ensure ingredients are not clumped.  Set aside.

Cream butter and sugars together til fluffy.  Add eggs and extracts and mix til smooth.  Add dry ingredients.

Stir in M&M's by hand to avoid crushing them (ours were a mint green color and looked awesome against the chocolate cookie).

Drop by spoonful onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes.

Try not to devour them all by yourself.  (We had to give most of them away to avoid eating them all)
