Back when I went shopping with my girlfriend Alycia I picked up a bag of the Seasonal Mint M&Ms. My favorite type of chocolate is any chocolate with mint so I knew I had to enjoy these!! What did I do with them?? I made Chocolate Chip Cookis with Mint M&Ms of course!!
Who doesn't love homemade chocolate chip cookies?? No one!!
Gather up your typical ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, then a 10 oz bag of Mint M&M's.
Just a close up shot because they are so lovely!
Combine your ingredients just like you would with Chocolate Chip cookies, but then....
ADD IN THE M&M's!! I just love how much more colorful these are going to be than regular chocolate chips!
Now because I felt there was not enough M&M's and I was pretty sure no one would complain about too much chocolate, I dumped in half a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips!
YUM! I could eat the entire bowl of batter!
Place on cookie sheet, then place in your oven and as always wait for the sweet cookie aroma to fill your house! Speaking of aroma's sometimes I am super jealous of Chuck! You know how sometimes when you are cooking you just gradually start smelling your food! He gets to come in the front and be hit by the smell in full force! I sometimes want it to slap me in the nose cause I'm sure it's way better LOL!
Are you ready for this?? I bet you are! Check out your final product! A little festive but you also get that warm fuzzy feeling that everyone must feel from homemade chocolate chips! I know that I get that feeling whenever I bite into a homemade chocolate chip cookie!
Since I wanted to be creative one night I thought what better than a cookie sundae?? UMM NOTHING!! So I grabbed a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream, one cookie, some whipped topping, and chocolate syrup! Oh yeah it was so good!!
I love the holidays and the specialty candies. It makes for some pretty awesome desserts! :-)
I highly recommend you run out and pick up a bag of mint M&M's, even if you don't put them in cookies you will want them just to "melt in your mouth"!!
