These Chewy M&M Cookies are baked up with oatmeal and chocolate chips to give them a little extra pizzaz! They’re the perfect solution to a long day at work or a hard day at school. Or even just a night in watching your favorite movie.
We’ve all seen those perfect M&M cookies at the bakery, but how do they make them look so good? Well, some of it has to do with the M&M’s on top after they’re baked! Just press a few into the tops and sides of your cookie dough balls before you bake them (or freeze them). This way, when they bake you’ll still be able to see their bright color without all the dough covering them up! I always use a food scoop to make my cookie dough balls, it saves a lot of time and they’re perfectly rounded and always the same size! It’a a miracle worker.
I always freeze my cookie dough balls before I bake them. I’ll just pop them in a long tupperware and let them chill while I clean dishes. Why? The cookie tends to bake up a little taller and they have the crispy outside and the chewy, softer inside that most people love and look for in a recipe. I always have a bag full of chocolate chips cookie dough balls in my freezer standing by in case I’m in desperate need of a cookie. Then I can just bake one or two and not an entire batch to fill my craving!
See? You get those cute colored candies on top after you bake them!
Now, this recipe really is incredible. The oatmeal is what makes these so chewy and plus, they’re a little more filling because of it, so you don’t feel like you have to keep going back for more and more. I ate mine with a mug full of milk and I was one happy girl. And let’s be honest, I can’t sit there and be all cute dunking my cookie. I just drop the whole thing in and eat the pieces with a spoon I’m classy like that.
You found your new favorite M&M cookie recipe! They’re that good.
