M&M are always a good option. These nostalgia snack have fond memories of baking or enjoying them as a child, making them a comforting and familiar treat.M&M’s come in a variety of flavors, from traditional milk chocolate to peanut and more.The hard candy shell of M&M’s provides a delightful crunch when you bite into the cookie, creating a pleasing contrast with the soft and chewy cookie dough.This recipe is relatively simple to bake, it doesn’t require complex techniques or hard-to-find ingredients.


I love soft and chewy cookies,It feel like a party in my mouth when biting into it.They offer a pleasant contrast in textures, tender and slightly gooey interior with a bit of chewiness.Soft and chewy cookies tend to be moister than their crispy counterparts making them easy to eat and enjoy.They stay fresh longer than crispy cookies and the moister in the soft cookies prevent the cookie from tasting dry or crumbly.



These M&M cookies are tender and chewy.When you bite into it it's soft and slightly gooey in the center, while the candy shells of the M&M's provide a satisfying crunch. This cookie is rich and buttery, with a subtle hint of vanilla that complements the sweetness of the M&M's. The aroma  alone will having you coming back for seconds.



  1. Ingredients needed

    Prepare your ingredients. 

  2. Combine Dry Ingredients

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, corn scratch and salt. The measurement are all provided. 

  3. Wet Ingredients

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar,  brown sugar,  eggs, and vanilla extract.Mix into light and fluffy, which takes about 2-3 minutes.

  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl. Mix until just combined. Don't overmix, as this can make the cookies tough.

  5. Add M&M's and chocolate

    Gently fold in the M&M's candies and chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

  6. Shape Cookies

    With a ice cream scooper or cookie scooper, scoop the cookie dough (removing excess dough) and round cookie dough into balls . Place on baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

  7. Add more M&M and chill for at least 3 hour best overnight

    I like to  press a few extra M&M's on top of each cookie for a more colorful appearance.  I like to chill my dough overnight or at least for 3 hours. Chilling the dough allows the flavors to meld and develop. The  butter in the dough solidify, which helps intensify and balance the flavors. This can result in a richer, more complex taste.When the dough is cold, it takes longer to spread and flatten during baking. This slow spread results in thicker cookies with a softer and chewier center, as they have more time to set and bake evenly.Chilled dough spreads less during baking. This is particularly important for cookies that contain a lot of mix-ins like chocolate chips and M&M's. Without chilling, these cookies may spread too much and become thin and crispy.

  8. Preheat your oven to 350°F. and bake for 15  to 18 mins 

  9. Cool & Enjoy

    Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.Once the cookies have cooled, serve and enjoy your soft and chewy M&M cookies! Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
