M&M Cookie Recipe

My kids are nuts for M&Ms – they are their very favorite candies! So you can probably imagine their excitement when they came  home from school one day to find homemade cookies WITH M&M’s! This simple act was enough to nominate me for Mom of the Year! We sat down together with a glass of milk and munched on this special treat while they told me all about their day.

M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pudding

These cookies have the perfect texture, thanks to a very special ingredient – vanilla pudding mix. Seriously, if you haven’t tried pudding cookies yet you have no idea what you are missing! The pudding makes the cookies soft and moist, but they still hold together really well and they don’t crumble when you bite into them. These are just great all-around cookies, and the M&Ms make them so fun and colorful!
