M&M Cookies - Easy Peasy

I love the website Picky Palate, some of the most wonderful recipes can be found.  Jenny has a fantastic site and I refer to it regularly.  I was intrigued by her recipe for Perfect M&M Cookies so I tried them with my 2 nieces.  Something didn't quite work for me and I had to adjust the recipe slightly.  Here is my altered version. Oh and these were a hit with everyone who tried them.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix ( I used Jello)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tbs of milk*
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 3/4 - 1 cup Mini M and M’s
I also added approximately 1/4 cup of brewed coffee*

* The milk and coffee added flavour and made the dough less dry. Easier to scoop and form into a cookie.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a baking liner, parchment paper or non-stick spray.

In a large mixing bowl cream your room temp (softened) butter and sugars until well combined. Add egg and vanilla mixing to combine. 

Add flour, pudding mix, baking soda, salt, milk, and coffee. Mix until even consistency. Add chips and m and m’s stirring to combine.

With either a teaspoon or medium scoop, drop dough on baking sheet about 1 inch in between. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cooked through. Let cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before moving to a bakers rack to complete cooling.

Makes 2 dozen cookies


  1. I love M&M Cookies.

    Also fun fact we have the same dish set. I was sad when they stopped making it.

  2. Man, these look great :) Chelsea would love them (as would mommy) And look at you with your fancy mise en place... I used to try to do that for photos then gave up :P

    1. Hahahaha! The blurriness hides the mess I made. Fancy setups are not my forte.


I really appreciate you taking time to comment. I read them all.

Thanks ever so much!
