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 🙂

    Oooh. These look awesome! What a great way to use that muffin top pan. Have a wonderful trip!

    As soon as I saw the photos, I guessed that you had baked these in the muffin top tins. What a fantastic idea!!

    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!

    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. 🙂

    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!

    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!

    Oh I want one of these! I’ve never seen them before! So do you normally make muffins in them? The cookies look amazing!

  10. Cupcake Activist

    I’ve never heard of or seen a cookie baking tray. What a great idea for getting perfectly shaped cookies. Yum!

  11. molly

    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.

    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. 😉

  18. Julia

    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.

  19. Debbi Does Dinner Healthy

    I gotta get a couple of these pans. I made the ugliest cookies in the world and these look very fool proof. Thanks!
