These soft, chewy M&M cookies are simple to make, and delicious to enjoy!
My son asked if I could make some M&M cookies that were big, soft, and not puffy. Most of my cookies that I make are puffy so I wasn’t sure how to get them flatter then normal, but I decided to experiment and we ended up with a scrumptious cookie. I love how they spread out, and baked up soft and chewy. You don’t need any fancy ingredients for these either; everything can be found in your pantry. So even though we made ours with M&M’s, you can use chocolate chips, toffee bits, peanut butter chips, or even candy bar pieces! If you’re looking for a big, soft, chewy cookie to enjoy, look no further!
