XXL M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 🙂

    I love the concept of the muffin top pan, but thought the recipe had too much flour. To me, the flour taste overtakes the other flavors. Will absolutely use the muffin tin for other cookies, but may use my recipe for the M&M cookies. I’ve been baking for 60 years, am a perfectionist with my baking & love trying new recipes. Thanks –

    Is 3 3/4 cup of flour correct? Just made the cookies and the dough was pretty dry. The cookies came out a little dry as well, but definitely edable

    I must have been living under a rock because I’ve never seen a muffin top tin before. LOL I must get me one of these and make these cookies 🙂

  5. Muriel

    I decided to make these for my grandsons for Halloween, and just took them out of the oven – D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. ! If their grandfather doesn’t eat them all by the time the boys come Halloweening, I know they’ll love them – great recipe ! BTW: I followed the recipe exactly, didn’t change a thing.

    I don’t have a muffin top pan but is a whoopie pie pan the same size!! What a great idea to use the muffin top pan! I want to get those pans now but if the whoopie pie pans are the same then I am LUCKY indeed! Gonna start trying this! Thanks again for a wonderful post! Def. a new fan of yours!
    Lots of love all the way from guam!

    This recipe didn’t turn out well for me…I made it on a plain cookie sheet, not a muffin top pan…the mix was so dry, the dough never even came together and the cookies didn’t spread at all in the oven – they were very dry as well…what did i do wrong?!

  8. Jen

    Saw this post, got one of those pans from Amazon, and made these! They are awesome! So fun! These have a ton of flour in them, compared to regular recipes…any idea why? I guess I am just wondering if any old chocolate chip recipe would be ok in this type of pan. Would another cookie recipe, for example, Snickerdoodles, work in this pan too?

  9. Just wanted to let you know I made these cookies tonight sans the muffin tins and….wow…holy goodness. My son doesn’t like M&Ms (yes, yes, you read that correctly…who raised that kid?!) in his cookies, so I did half the batch as just chocolate chips. I mixed milk and semi-sweet and they were fantastic. I stumbled upon your blog through my friend the Snappy Gourmet and I’m kind of hooked. Quality job.

  10. Cindy

    I “FINALLY” got to make these!!! My friend got me some muffin top pans for Christmas, so of course I had to try this recipe. My husband tells me that from now on, when I make cookies, I have to use these pans!! Now I have to try all your other recipes!!! Hope you have other ideas in the future. Thanks!!!

    I was super excited to try this recipe. I found the pan at Bed Bath and Beyond for $15. I just finished making these and they are good, but the dough was very sticky and goopy. It didn’t look like your dough. I’m not sure why. Could it be the butter I used?

  12. Just made these for the kiddos for their after school treat today. They are sooooo delicious! I didn’t have the muffin top pan, so I just formed them with my hand and baked on a lined cookie sheet. They came out perfect! This is hands down the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever tried! Thanks for the great recipe! Can’t wait for the kids to get home and have some (:

  13. Jessica

    After seeing all the fun things you’ve made with the muffin top pan, I asked for one for my birthday. Today, I tried it out for the first time using this recipe (substituting Reese’s pieces for M&Ms), and let me just say…I am smitten! Keep the muffin top pan recipes coming!

  14. I am thinking about making these, but I would like to know what size M&M bag to use. Could you please add the size of the bag on the recipe? Thank you!

  15. Amber

    I couldn’t find the pans…and my hubby ate almost all of my m&m’s…but they turned out great, regardless! Yum!

  16. Amy

    I made these last night and they are delicious! I didn’t find them at my TJ Maxx so I ordered them off of Amazon.com and made them last night–I’m hooked! I hope I can find more recipes to make in these pans! I shared your recipe on one of my message boards and told them about your blog as well.

  17. Barbara

    Oooooo..been thinking of these all day long. Stopped at TJ Maxx for the pans, no go. But I found a bunch at Home Goods for $9.99/each. Can’t wait to try out this recipe- yippeeee!!!!!!

  18. judy

    i’ve been searching walmart and target since i enjoyed a cranberry-orange muffin top at atlanta bread co. when i checked out bed bath and beyond i not only found the pan, Chicago Metallic $14.99 but also bumped into another pan seeker who told me about your website. like what i see and will return to your site. oh and hello again to the nice customer i met at bb&b.

    1. Judy, Welcome to Picky Palate!! What a fun story, too funny that you bumped into one of my readers looking for the same pan! You will love using the pan for cookies, let me know how your muffins and cookies turn out :). Thanks for sharing your story!

  19. It’s so funny how i was looking at those cookies and thinking, “now Jenny, how the heck did you get your cookies so well rounded” and then I scrolled down and went, “ahhh.” Have a fun time with Rocco.

  20. Pam Ivbuls

    I love how these cookies are so perfectly shaped. And who doesn’t love a jumbo-sized cookie! They look scrumptious.

  21. I agree with the second commenter. These cookies would make great ice cream sandwiches! I’m going to look for these muffin top pans! Thanks! Have a safe and fun trip to LA! I know you will. 🙂

  22. I have the muffin top pan and I use mine mainly for whoopie pie cakes. Perfect size and thickness. But now I’m excited to use it for chocolate chip cookies. It looks like your cookies turned out really thick. Just how I like them. Can’t wait to try it. But yeah, I’m going to have to invest in another muffin top pan if I like the idea because otherwise it would take forever to bake a few dozen cookies! Thanks for the idea!

  23. I love the idea of using the muffin top pan to make the giant cookies!! That is truly awesome. Then you never have kids arguing that their brother’s/sister’s cookie is bigger than theirs. Now if I just count out the exact number of chocolate chips and M&Ms for each cookie, then I’ll have solved the argument that one sibling’s cookie has more chocolate/candy than theirs. 🙂

  24. How are those XXL cookies. Love that for a name. And love the pan and now I MUST go find one or two.
    Have fun with Bertolli/Rocco. I had the pleasure of going to the Night in Napa for the SF Food BlogHer conference last Sept. Really fun (even though I don’t even drink) and it was awesome to meet Rocco!

  25. Oh I will be looking on amazon for one (or two or three!) of those pans! That’s awesome. bet we’ll be seeing a bunch of these type of cookies around now. LOL Even cookies that want to spread, can’t!

  26. molly

    so cool!!!! how did you come up with this idea? i would have never thought… 🙂 can’t wait to try

  27. You had me at “XXL M&M.” 🙂 That pan is so cool. I had no idea they made muffin top pans. Using it to make cookies is genius.

  28. These are gorgeous M&M cookies! I love that pan, too! Sounds like you’re in for a fun couple of days. Can’t wait to see the photos.

  29. These look soooo yummy! I have this same pan and I love it! It works great to make cookie sandwiches too. Of course, XXL cookie sandwiches. Have a super great time in LA. I can’t wait to hear how everything goes. Make sure to get a good pic of Rocco. 😉

  30. I mean honestly…So freaking good! M&M cookies are my absolute favorite cookie, yes, sometimes I have the tastebuds of a 5 year old and a proud of it! Oh and TJ Maxx, done and done. I hit that place up all the time and get the best kitchen stuff. Can’t WAIT to make these.
