How could you go wrong with these cookies? ( I just want to grab a few cookies, off that cookie tower! And dip them right into that milk!) I’m sure your family will enjoy them! We couldn’t stop eating these m&m cookies. Even my husband, kept sneaking a cookie or two. The best part… They can be mixed up and in the oven, in no-time! 

 Any family events, coming up? Make a batch and share with your family. They look so pretty and colorful, sitting on a nice platter. 

Surprise the kids, with a fun after school snack! They deserve it! After a long day of learning, these m&m cookies would be a great idea!!

M&M Cookies to the rescue!

Two weekends ago, we were able to install our new laminate flooring! We tore up the carpet in our living room, over the winter. We found out the subfloor, needed to be replaced. That was a huge job! My husband pulled up all the old subflooring material. That was a pain in the behind! He replaced the entire living room. He did it all and has done a great job. I made a batch of these cookies, and they helped us get through the laminate floor install. I kept sneaking a “cookie” break. Everyone needs a “cookie” break!
