Mint M&M Cookies

Usually I am all for the tried and true recipe, the standard one, the normal flavor.  But I've had these mint M&Ms sitting around for awhile.  Surprisingly M hasn't eaten them right up.
So I decided to try a twist on a classic and make mint M&M cookies for M to take to share at work this week.  They would also be great for St. Patty's day because they're Green :)

Mint M&M Cookies


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup mint M&Ms
Beat the sugars and butter together until well mixed.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.  Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Mix well.  Finally, briefly stir in the M&Ms.  Scoop dough onto cookie sheet and slightly press flat.  
Bake for 9-12 minutes at 375 degrees.

  1. These look so delicious, plus my hubby loves anything mint!

    1. Thanks Heather - they are supper easy - you should make some for your hubby for a St. Patty's Day treat :)

  2. Found you through the March Google+ Blog Hop from The NY Melrose family and I love your blog. You hooked me in with these cookies though - I love anything with chocolate and mint! Hope you're enjoying married life - I just got married last June and definitely loving it so far.

    1. Thanks for visiting Vicky. I hope you enjoy the cookies! I am loving being married - lots of adjustments, but it's been great. Looking forward to more adventures in the future!

  3. Thank you for linking up to my party this week. I love these cookies, I pinned them.
    I hope to see you back next week at Tuesday Trivia.

    of the recipes I once posted here.
