It’s Monday!!   I am getting myself packed up and ready for the Bertolli LA trip tomorrow.  So excited to stay in a nice hotel, meet Rocco DiSpirito and some fabulous bloggers and kick my heels up for a couple days!!  I’ll be sure to post pictures of the trip later this week

Now for some cookies!  So excited to share these giant Bakery worthy M&M cookies with you guys   Listen up….go find yourself one of these Muffin Top Pans pictured below, they make the B-E-S-T giant cookies ever!!  Check it out…

So this is the Muffin Top Pan by Cuisinart.  I picked this one up at TJ Maxx for 6.99!  If you’ve got a TJ Maxx or Marshalls near by, go try to find one.  I’m telling you, these pans are awesome for making giant cookies!  If you can’t find them, I found some online HERE you can check out   I’m on the hunt for a couple more myself!

Once you’ve got your muffin top pan, go get a nice bag of M&M’s!!

Now, scoop a heaping 1/4 Cup of cookie dough into each of the muffin cups and press down.

Pour your M&M’s…

and press onto tops of cookies…

bake and….

Mmmmm!  Wait until you try this recipe, just recently put it together and LOVE it!  The cookies are great chilled too!

XXL M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks softened butter

3/4 Cup sugar

1 Cup packed light brown sugar

2 extra large eggs

2 Tablespoons pure vanilla

3 3/4 Cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

12 oz bag chocolate chips

1 bag M&M’s (you’ll have some left over)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer beat the butter and sugars until well beaten.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined.  Place flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips.  Do not mix in M&M’s!!

2.  Scoop 1/4 Cup of dough and press into a muffin top pan (or just press onto a parchment or silpat lined cookie sheet).  Now, press your M&M’s onto pressed cookies.  This way they won’t break apart!!  Bake for 12-15 minutes, until edges just start to turn golden brown.  Let cool for 10 minutes on muffin top pan or cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.  Grab a tall glass of milk and EAT until your hearts content

About 18 XXL cookies!
