Mini M&M Cookies

These mini m&m cookies are fun and will make your family smile!

There’s something about a cookie with m&m’s on it. Our eyes are drawn to these colorful little chocolate candies. Kids will often choose these type of cookies. With a great big smile, kids will gladly eat m&m cookies. When our son, Landon, sees a cookie with m&m’s, his eyes light up. They’re just fun!

Now, you can bake a batch at home and enjoy with your family. Everyone can grab a glass of milk and sit around the table to eat these cookies.

Let’s bake a batch of mini m&m cookies!

Made with melted butter, sugar, an egg, pinch of salt, all-purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, and mini m&m’s. Very basic ingredients, that create a fun and delicious cookie. This recipe makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies, using 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough. No need to chill the dough, before baking. After combining the ingredients and adding the mini m&m’s, you can start scooping out the dough and bake right away. 

They do have a taste and texture, similar to shortbread cookies. After scooping out the dough on to the baking sheet, I gently press them down. These cookies don’t spread very much and hold their shape.

Place more m&m’s on top of cookie dough, before baking. This is how they stay on top of the cookies, after being baked.
