With a mouthful of mini chocolate candies in every bite, these Loaded M&M cookies are chewy, chocolatey and totally delicious!


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mini M&M’s candies, plus more for topping dough balls with before baking


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix on low until just combined.
  4. Gently stir in 1 and 1/2 cups M&Ms on low speed or with a wooden spoon.
  5. Scoop dough into 2-tablespoon sized balls and place a few inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Generously press additional M&M’s all over the top of the cookie dough scoops.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to turn light brown around the edges and barely starting to crackle on top, rotating the cookies sheets after 5 minutes of baking time.
  7. Let cookies cool a few minutes on the cookie sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
