How To Make This M&M Cookies Recipe:
To begin making these delicious M&M cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Then, in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream together the unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
When that has been combined, scrape down the bowl and add in the egg and vanilla extract, and continue mixing the dough together.
Once all of the wet ingredients are combined, scrape the bowl again and then add in the flour, 3 tablespoons of the vanilla pudding mix (no not the whole packet!), baking soda, and salt.
Stir everything together until the dough is completely combined.
After all of the other ingredients have been added, pour in the chocolate chips and mini M&Ms.
Mix them in by hand with a spatula to make sure the M&M’s don’t break apart before they bake.
Then, roll the cookies into 1 ½ inch balls or use a medium size cookie scoop.
Place the cookies on a cookie sheet and bake them for about 10-12 minutes, or until they are baked through and then edges begin to slightly golden.
Once they are done in the oven, let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes.
Now just serve and enjoy!!
