Jumbo M&M Stuffed Cookies

IMG_2785

Everyone loves an M&M cookie right? What about a huge, soft, chewy, stuffed with 5 different types of M&M’s cookie? Now we’re talking! My kids absolutely love M&M’s and after my daughter’s recent encounter with an M&M donut (thanks Grandma!) she’s been dreaming up M&M treats she wants me to try. So naturally when I asked her what special first day of school treat she wanted she replied with M&M cookies…to make these cookies extra special I mixed in 5 different M&M’s and rolled them into huge cookies. I mean hey, a girl only starts Kindergarten once in her life!

The pictures of these cookies just don’t do them justice! They are about an inch tall and 5 inches across. Just when you think it couldn’t get any better…there’s pudding in them too! Which keeps them nice and fluffy. I also used butter extract instead of traditional vanilla which gives them even more of a soft buttery taste!

M&M has so many different flavors to choose from you could just about put anything in them. We chose regular M&M’s, Peanut Butter M&M’s, Peanut M&M’s, Pretzel M&M’s, and M&M Minis.

Here’s what you’re going to need:

1 Stick Softened Unsalted Butter
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Eggs
1 3.4oz Vanilla Pudding (Instant)
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 TSP Baking Soda
1TSP Butter Extract (May substitute with vanilla)
3 Cups M&M’s (any mix)

Makes approx. 18 5in cookies.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combined flour and baking soda in a bowl, set aside.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and instant pudding mix. Add in eggs then butter extract.

Step 3: Slowly mix in flour combination until a completely combined.

Step 4: Once your dough is ready, gently fold in 2 cups of M&M’s. Pour the last cup into a bowl and set aside.

Step 5: Roll into large balls about 1.5in across. See how big they are in my hand?

Step 6: Then dip each cookie in M&M’s using the last cup of M&M’s that you set aside. This gives each cookies lots of M&M’s on the outside too! (only the top needs to be covered)

Step 7: Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet (several inches apart!) for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees. You may need to adjust the baking temp depending on the size of your cookies. I recommend setting your timer for 10 minutes to start then keeping an eye on the first set to see just how long yours need. Because these cookies were so big I only baked about 6 at a time!

After school snack, bake sale, lunch boxes, office party, middle of the night snack, Christmas, pot luck, thank you gifts, birthday parties…I think these cookies will fit in just about anytime! And as always they freeze nicely, so after allowing the girls each to enjoy one I placed the rest in the freezer to pull out for future after school treats!

  1. How genius to add a variety of m&m’s. I am definitely going to follow suit! What a fun mom you are:)

  2. These are super gorgeous!! I love how big they are. Big cookies = happy me.

  3. When should the flour combination be mixed with the butter combination? I may have done it wrong, as the dough would not stick together well. Love your site by the way. Seriously.

    • Oh my goodness thank you for catching that, that step was omitted! Fixing it! It should be placed in just before the M&M’s. So sorry! Often I find when people have issues with dough coming together, they simple have not mixed it enough :)

  4. Do you need to flatten the cookies before baking or leave them in a ball? The cookies look amazing!
