How to Make Christmas M&M Mini Cookies

You will need:

  • 1 cup Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
  • 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Power
  • 1 Cup Mini Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Red and Green M&M Minis
  • Cookie Sheet

Red and Green Mini M&M's

Just a note about the M&M’s.  We highly recommend using M&M minis for these cookies.  I pulled out the red and green M&M’s from two bags of M&M Minis and had approximately 1 1/2 cups.  We added 1 cup to the Christmas M&m Mini Cookie dough.  If you only want to buy 1 bag of M&M Minis – use all the green and red M&M’s that you have.  If there are not 1 cup of them – add some extra Mini Chocolate Chips.

Cookie Dough for Christmas M&M Mini Cookies

To make the cookie dough, cream the butter and sugars with a mixer if you have one.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until fully combined.  Add the baking powder and mix.  Then add the flour 1 cup at a time.

Add Mini Chocolate Chips

Using a spoon, fold in the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Add Mini M&Ms

Finally, mix in the Red and Green M&M Minis.

Bake until Golden Brown and Delicious

Take a small spoonful of dough (each cookie was .5 oz.) and roll it into a ball.  Press the ball down slightly on the cookie sheet. This will help you get a more uniform cookie. If you have any M&M’s left over, press in a couple onto the top of the cookie ball. Bake the cookies in a 375 degree oven until they are golden brown on the bottom and around the edges.  They should bake approximately 8 minutes.

A few of the M&M’s that are on the top of the cookies might break during the cooling process.  There is not a lot you can do about that.  It’s fine … they taste great and still look pretty!

  1. I’m planning on making these this weekend! Lol. Just not worried about red & green yet. Do you think the smaller scoop that Wilton makes is about the right size or too small? Just want a uniform size without weighing.

  2. How many cookies does this make?

    • Hi – this batch will make 3 dozen regular sized cookies. We made about 75 bite-sized cookies. It really depends on how big you make them.
