Skip the chocolate chips and make this colorful m&m cookie recipe for your next family get together. Change the color of m&m’s to match any occasion.
Cookies are one of my family’s favorite treats. The kids especially love cookies if they get to help make the cookies. So when I decided to make this M&M Cookie recipe, I knew I’d have lots of little hands to help me.
What I like about this m&m cookie recipe is that you can change up the color of the m&ms for any occasion. Since Easter is just around the corner, we used the pastel Easter bag of m&ms for these cookies. Luckily most of the m&ms made it to the cookies and not in my kids tummies.
