Mint M&M Chocolate Cookies

mint m&m cookies 2013

Mint M&M Chocolate Cookies:

  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups Mint M&Ms (plus more for decorating)

I drop the dough by teaspoon onto the cookie sheet, then decorate each lump with 3 M&Ms. Bake at 375 F degrees for 10 minutes.

YUM. Mint M&M bags are smaller than regular bags – 9.9 ounces. I used a bag and a half (between the 3/4 cup in the dough and the M&Ms to decorate the tops).

The snowman on the left is a German or Austrian smoker (Put lit incense inside, the smoke will come out the mouth near the pipe…in theory, anyway. I am not an incense burner – too many allergies!). The train ornament on the right is something my mother gave me in the mid to late 1970’s. It has a watch battery and plays “Jingle Bells”. Both are on the mantle in the family room this year.
