Here’s your line up of ingredients. Your basic cookie ingredients along with cocoa powder and my favorite mini M and M’s!

I find my mini’s at Fry’s Marketplace in AZ. I know they can be tricky to find. You can certainly use regular size if you can’t find the minis.

Start by creaming your butter and sugars in your favorite stand mixer.

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    You have so many amazing dessert recipes that I dont know where to start! You are so creative. I think I’ll try these double chocolate m&m cookies. The thing is that when I try someones cookie recipe at another website where they “rave” about how good they are well, after making them they end up in the dumpster. I mean I could play hockey with them! They literally could break my teeth and I want my teeth ha! Can I not judge a good recipe by reading it? Ive been a good baker all my life but I guess trial and error is part of the baking world. So I continue digging for someone who actually knows how to bake and put recipes together and Im gona make your cookies!
