Those peppermint-white chocolate M&Ms were not on my shopping list, but I had to make cookies to bring to a concert last week and I figured this would be a festive addition to a cookie tray! If you can’t find peppermint M&Ms, skip the “dip cookies in sugar” step and dip them in crushed candy canes instead.
Peppermint M&M Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
66 peppermint-white chocolate M&Ms
Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are cracked, but still soft. They will not look completely done, but they’ll cook a little more after being removed from the oven.
Let cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack.
Nutrition information does not include M&Ms as they’re not in the database for the nutrition-label tool. Add 1g/carb per cookie for the M&Ms.
