Double Chocolate M&M Cookies

I love M&M cookies. When I think of M&M cookies, I think of these giant M&M cookies they sell at a nearby grocery store. Although this grocery store is more than just a grocery store. It’s called Wilsons Farms, and they have farmland all around the store where they grow most of their food and have a bakery section with homemade breads, cookies, cakes, etc. These cookies are probably the size of a small child’s face and topped with lots of M&M’s. I’ve only had one a couple of times, if that, but I always loved admiring them. 

These cookies aren’t nearly as large, and are double chocolate instead of a regular cookie with M&M’s, but they’re just as delicious. Disclaimer, I actually decorated the surroundings of the cookies with Caramel M&Ms. My original idea was to make these cookies with only M&Ms and no chocolate chips, but the bag of M&Ms I bought only had 1 cup of M&Ms. I was so mad. I thought it was such a ripoff. It was one of those bags you tear off the top and it reseals because it’s not meant to be eaten in one sitting, so I thought there would be more M&Ms inside.

Anyways, nevertheless, I ended up having a bag of Caramel M&Ms on hand because I wanted to try them, so I used those to decorate the photos. That’s why those M&Ms are so round. If you’re looking for my thoughts on Caramel M&Ms, I think they’re pretty good, but not fantastic. They’re very chewy, which is expected, but they don’t have very much flavor so sometimes it’s not even worth it. I think they’re good for the first 5 M&Ms or so, and then I’m done. But of course I had to try them.

This recipe is simple, quick, and a classic. Happy baking!

Double Chocolate M&M Cookies

Fudgy chocolate cookies with both M&Ms and milk chocolate chips. These cookies are so chocolatey and delicious!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup M&Ms
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter with the sugars until fluffy, about a minute. Add the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla.
  2. Add the cocoa powder and mix well. Add the baking soda, salt, and flour, one cup at a time, and beat on low speed until combined, making sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl when necessary.
  3. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and hand mix the M&Ms and chocolate chips into the dough (or else the M&M's will all break). Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F and roll the dough into balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked on top but still quite soft. Allow to cool on baking sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
