Calories 546kcal


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp. corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (8 Tbsp.), cold
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed (light or dark)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk (no whites)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup M&Ms (Cupids Mix for Valentine's Day)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Mix dry ingredients together: In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Cut the butter into squares and using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, cream the butter with the sugars for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  • Then add in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Blend until mixed. If any of the butter gets stuck on the paddle attachment use a rubber spatula to knock it off.
  • Gradually add in the flour mixture until ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and mix just until the chocolate chips are incorporated. Turn off the machine. Add in the M&Ms and stir in using a rubber spatula.
  • Scoop cookie dough onto baking sheet. (This recipe makes 6 LARGE cookies). Place extra M&M’s on the top of the cookies if desired.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned on the top. Remove from oven and let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for 15 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy!


M&M creates seasonal M&Ms so you can use this recipe to make Easter cookies with the pastel color M&Ms, Christmas cookies with red & green seasonal M&Ms, Halloween M&Ms, etc. 
If you just want a good ol' M&M cookie, I recommend using the mini M&Ms!
