These M&M Christmas cookies are easy, festive and delicious. Save some for Santa.


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.


1 cup butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

3 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup Christmas M&Ms


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

In large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars with electric beaters. Mix 1-2 minutes until fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined.

Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and M&Ms.

Scoop cookie dough onto baking sheet and place about two inches apart.

Bake 7-10 minutes until edges are golden brown.

Cool and serve with cold milk.
