Nothing jazzes up a batch of Christmas cookies like a handful of M&Ms.
The chocolate-y goodness melts in your mouth, not in your hands. (I know. I couldn’t resist.)
These festive cookies are easy to make, colorful and delicious. And the kids love them!
Make a big batch for the family and if you have the willpower, save a couple for Santa. He’s got a big night ahead of him and he is going to need the sugar rush.
