These Valentine’s Day Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies are one of my favorite Holiday Desserts! A secret tip is that you can make these for ANY holiday or special occasion (just change the color of the M&Ms) 😉 

I used this Chocolate Chip Cookies Freezer Recipe as my guide and then added in M&Ms. The best part about these cookies is that you can freeze them in balls and bake them one or two at a time if needed! Check out this post on Chocolate Chip Cookies if you want to know how I freeze mine! 

Normally when I whip up a batch of cookies, I will bake half of the cookies immediately and then freeze the rest! 

Super helpful if you are needing a small batch or if you’re only making cookies for 1-3 people! 

How to Make M&M Cookies

First, combine all of your “wet” ingredients and mix well (butter, eggs, vanilla). Once it’s all mixed together, add in your “dry ingredients (flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking soda & salt). You can use a fork or a hand mixer for this process. 

Slowly fold in mini chocolate chips and half of the M&Ms. I like to set some of the M&Ms to the side and add them after the cookies are baked. 

Using a cookie scoop, create 1″ or 2″ balls of dough and place them 2″ apart on a prepared baking sheet – I like to line my baking sheet with parchment paper. 

This seems simple, but the smaller you make your cookie balls the more cookies you will yield. If you want larger cookies, make larger cookie balls. 

Bake your cookies and watch them very carefully at the end. You want the middle done and the edges slightly browned. You also do not want to over-cook your cookies. 

Pull them out of the oven when you see the edges start to brown and let the cookies finish baking on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.

Using a cookie scoop or spoon, create 1” balls of dough and place them 2” apart on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.
