Super Duper Chewy Milk Chocolate M&M Cookies are bound to be one of those cookies that your family asks for year round! I mean why not? Afterall, the only thing better than chocolate is more chocolate and the only thing better than a cookies is a bigger cookie. You know I'm right. Don't even try to deny it!
These cookies are big, soft, delicious handfuls of chocolaty goodness. They were another one of the birthday treats I brought to my coworkers. (I think I may have delivered somewhere in the vicinity of 15 pounds of sugary, buttery, yummy goodness that day!) Somehow we managed to work our way through the pile without any complaint!
These cookies were actually kind of a hybrid of a few recipes. I took part of what I loved from a few different places and added a few tweaks along the way. I had read somewhere that adding milk powder to cookie dough makes for a great chewy texture. So I worked that in along with plenty of cocoa powder. The results were amazing if I do say so myself!
Two days into the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies and I am in cookie heaven! Don't worry, there are plenty more to come!

- Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
- In a bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, milk powder, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and beat until combined. Fold in M&M's (I like to reserve some to place on the top of cookies before I bake them.)
- Scoop in 3 Tablespoon scoops (a large cookie scoop) onto baking sheet, leaving cookies 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, they should look a bit soft still. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
