Valentine’s Day M & M Cookies

Lynn demonstrates how to make M & M cookies. These would be great for Valentine’s Day or use different color M&M’s for another holiday or for a super delicious snack, dessert or after school treat.  


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-3/4 cups Milk Chocolate M & M’s

Preheat oven to 350°.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with cooking spray.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and both sugars until well blended.  Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix to combine.

Add the flour, baking soda and salt.  Mix with the butter mixture until well blended.  

Fold in the M & M’s.

Drop dough by rounded Tablespoons onto the prepared sheet, about 2 inches apart.  I use a small ice cream scoop for this task.

Bake for 8-10 minutes for chewy cookies or 12-14 minutes for crispy cookies.
