Soft and Chewy M&M Cookies



What I Love about this recipe:
Chocolate Chip M&M cookies: the chocolate chips in this M&M recipe really take it to a whole other level! I like to use mini chocolate chips rather than regular so they don’t take away from the real star of the show.
Freezer friendly: I love to keep a batch in the freezer (see instructions below)
Versatile: Replace the M&M’s with various colors or other candies depending on the holiday or season!
