A simple sugar cookie with delicious bites of M&M’s candies. Made in one bowl so clean-up is easy! This sweet treat can easily be customized with seasonal M&M’s for any holiday or occasion.
Sometimes the best recipes come from making do with what you can find in your pantry! Earlier this week I was making dinner to bring to my sister-in-law who just had a baby. I wanted to make some cookies for my nieces and nephews, but didn’t have any chocolate chips in the house.
At first I was going to make monster cookies with the M&M’s I had, but I didn’t have enough peanut butter. So I put on my thinking cap and came up with this recipe.
The base for these cookies is a simple sugar cookie. If you don’t have M&M’s in the house, you could turn these into chocolate chip cookies or top with sprinkles.
If you have a big sweet tooth like me, you’ve got to see what I’ve been pinning lately! I can’t resist pinning lots of yummy cakes and cookies to try someday soon. Are you following me on Pinterest?
