These M&M cookies are sweet with chewy interiors and crispy edges. They've got bright pops of crunchy M&Ms and melty milk chocolate chips. These cookies are simple to make, you only need one bowl and a spoon — no hand or stand mixers required! They're also great to customize for holidays or special events by using certain color M&Ms.
Add in the cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Again, stir until smooth. Add in the correctly measured (Note 1) flour and mix until JUST combined. Don't over mix.
Gently stir in 1 cup of M&Ms and 1/4 cup chocolate chips until combined.
Bake for 8-12 minutes erring on the side of under-baking which keeps them soft and chewy (We like ours right at 9 minutes)! Remember the cookies will continue to "bake" a little more out of the oven, so take them out as soon as the edges start to lightly brown.
STORAGE: We like these cookies best on day 1 and 2 of being made. They do last up to 1 week, but they do begin to lose texture and flavor. To store: place in an airtight container and keep at room temperature. Wait until cookies are completely cooled before adding to the container.
Note 1: spoon the flour into a measuring cup and level the top with the back of a butter knife.
