Satisfy this season’s chocolate cravings with this delectable recipe from Love From the Kitchen. These Chocolate M&M Cookies can be made with mint or peppermint varieties to really bring out that holiday taste. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder (regular cocoa powder can be used)
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. coarse salt (regular salt can be used)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup Peppermint Or Mint Holiday M&M’s
  • ½ cup Holiday M&M Minis

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar. Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Blend in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed. Mix in the cocoa powder until well blended.
  3. Add the flour, salt and baking powder to the bowl and mix on low speed just until incorporated. Fold in the M&M candies with a spatula.
  4. The dough is very thick! Transfer the dough to a work surface and knead briefly by hand to be sure the ingredients are well combined.
  5. Using a standard size cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheets. To make 36 cookies, 12 cookies should fit onto each sheet.
  6. Bake for approx 10 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes on cookie sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
