  • 1 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¾ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ½ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ cups M&Ms


  • In a large bowl using a hand mixer or stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar together for about 2 minutes, until fluffy. Add vanilla extract and continue to beat together. Add one egg at a time, beating each egg into the batter until it is fully incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Whisk together and mix into the wet ingredients. Fold in ½ cup of M&Ms into the cookie dough using a silicone spatula. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon out 2 tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Press an additional 6-8 M&Ms into each cookie and place on the baking sheet about 2-3 inches apart.
  • Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 13 minutes for soft and chewy cookies and 15 minutes for crunchier cookies. After removing from the oven, let cookies sit on baking sheet for about 2-3 minutes to set and then remove onto a cooling rack to cool for 10 minutes.
