Double Chocolate M&M Cookies


The M&M cookies I made last weekend were so popular, I thought i'd make some Halloween themed cookies for work and the party last night. I went with a double chocolate cookie because it's dark like Hallowen! I used my same recipe for the most part, just subbing some cocoa powder for flour, and adding different colored M&Ms. Everyone loved them at the party!


Double Chocolate Halloween M&M Cookies

1 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. light brown sugar
2 eggs at room temp.
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/4 c. flour
1/3 c. dutch process cocoa powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 c. Halloween M&Ms


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes. Scrape down sides.
Add in vanilla, turn mixer on medium, add eggs one at a time.
Add in salt, baking poweder and soda.
Slowly add in flour, cocoa powder and most of the M&M's.
Place dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll dough into walnut sized balls, place on a greased cookie sheet, press extra M&M's into the dough so they are on top and visable.
Bake for 14 minutes, or until golden and puffy.
