Chocolate Chip and MM Cookies

I actually went out with my husband this weekend. It was so fun. I forgot how much fun we can have together. We went to City Walk at Universal. While we had fun my kiddos were being baby sat for the second time in their little lives. I know, I know!!! That is horrible that I only left them twice, but trust me after this weekend I am going to try to do it more often!!! I had the time of my life!!

My best friend's 16 year old daughter watched my girls. She was so awesome! She is hands down the most mature, level headed, incredible sixteen year old I know. Not to mention, she has three siblings under the age of three. This makes it easy to handle a screaming 20 mo. old Bailey. When I walked in the door at 1 a.m. she had my screaming baby in her arms fast asleep. How awesome is that?!

Anyway, I knew she was coming to watch my girls. So, what do you make a growing 16 yr. old!?!? Yummy, HUGE, M and M Cookies! These turned out so great! Take my word for it! I made 36 of these GIGANTIC Cookies on Saturday and they were gone by Sunday! No joke!

I had a great weekend with my hubby and kiddos! I hope everyone enjoyed their 3 day weekend!!!!


The recipe:

4 cps. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cps. melted unsalted butter
1 cp. brown sugar
2 cp. white sugar
2 TB Vanilla Extract
2 Egg
2 Egg yolks
2 cp. Hershey Chocolate Chips
2 cp. MandM's

1. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together the sugars and butter until fluffy. Add the extract and one egg at a time.
2. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
3. Fold in the chips and MandM's.
4. Add about 1/4 cp. of the batter per cookie. Bake on 325 for about 10-15 min. When brown around the edges.



  1. I saw the word chocolate and headed right on over. hehe...That means this is a winner in my book. ;-D

  2. Great recipe for back to school!! (for me, I mean, not the kids!) ;-)

  3. Man, these would have been a treat back when I was a teenager and was babysitting! All I seem to remember was enjoying popcorn cakes along with a little 3-year-old I used to babysit. M&M cookies would have been superb!

  4. Delicious cookies, my daughter would love the M&Ms in them!

  5. Lucky! It's SO hard to find time for "us". One or more of my three ALWAYS has something going on. Usually a sporting event. Someday it will be my turn but for now it's all about them.

    Miranda I really don't like to bake cookies so save me one. Depending where ya at Sanford's 5/10 minutes down the road! :)I'll bring milk!

  6. These look wonderful, I bet your little kiddies were in heaven with this one!

  7. Sounds fantastic about your weekend, Miranda! I should do that more often too. Yeah, I'll feel so guilty leaving the kids behind...ha ha!So, everytime ended up we all went out together...ha ha!

  8. I love M&M cookies. They just scream fun:)

  9. Where can I find me one of those!? Haven't been "out" in forever...your cookies look delish, though :D


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
