M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Good Morning Lovelies!  Love is in the air, can you smell it? No? Well after testing out batch after batch of cookies – love is definitely in the air in my house. Today, I’m sharing my absolute go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Add a little Valentines Day M&Ms and you have the perfect little treat.


1 stick of softened butter

1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar

1/2 cup of granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup of flour

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 bag of Valentines Day M&Ms

yields approximately 24 cookies


1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 – Add the butter, brown sugar & granulated sugar to your mixer. Using the paddle attachment whip the ingredients until fluffy {approx. 2 minutes on medium}. Be sure to stop and scrape down the sides.

3 – Stop mixer and add egg and vanilla and continue to beat mixture for another 2 minutes.

4 – Turn mixer to lowest setting and add flour, baking soda and salt.

5 – Once mixture looks like it is coming together add chocolate chips and mix.

6 – Scoop mixture using a small to medium size cookie scoop on to parchment paper. It is okay if the cookies appear to be like little ice cream scoops.

7 – Add M&M’s to tops of cookie dough balls and gently press in to dough but be careful not to flatten dough, you want them to still look round. Bake for 12-14 minutes {one cookie sheet at a time, in the center rack}.

Note: My oven tends to cook them faster, so I go for 12 minutes. They will be pretty gooey when the come out of the oven but will come together in about 30 minutes.

Happy Baking!
