The time for winter break is just around the corner! Many of us are stuck inside with not much to do, but don’t worry, your boredom is cured! Here is a recipe for some delicious holiday treats, perfect for filling time and enjoying with family, friends, or even by yourself.
What you’ll need for these delicious cookies:
1 cup of butter
¾ cup Sugar
¾ cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 ¼ cups Flour
1 cup M&Ms
1 cup Chocolate Chips
Now to combine everything together! Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees, and then gather all of your ingredients. You can use either a hand mixer or a stand mixer!
- Start by softening the butter. You can do this by mixing it around in the bowl
- Add sugar and continue stirring to let the butter and sugar combine until fluffy
- Add brown sugar and mix until soft
- Crack 2 eggs and add them one at a time into the bowl until completely combined
- Add a teaspoon of Vanilla extract
- Combine the baking soda and salt in a small bowl then add the mixture to your batter
- Add flour bit by bit until all is combined
- Scrape down sides of bowl and mix for another minute on medium speed
- Add M&Ms into the bowl along with the chocolate chips
- Stir by hand to combine
- Scoop spoonfuls of batter onto a baking pan (12 cookie dough scoops per tray)
- Bake at 375 for 10 minutes to start and then use judgement to bake for longer; cookies should be golden brown
- Take pan out of oven and put cookies onto a cooling rack or plate to cool
- Enjoy your holiday cookies!
These are my all time favorite cookies to make! They are fairly easy to whip up and that shows in how long it took me, which was around 40 minutes in all. I pre measured my ingredients, so when it came time to put everything together in the mixer, it took around 8 minutes. I took the first batch out of the oven, after 12 minutes, and let them cool for just a little bit and then I served them to my family! According to my sister, “Those look really good Ky!” Now personally, I prefer to enjoy these cookies while they are still warm, especially with a cold glass of milk. To eat throughout the winter break, store them in a Ziploc bag, plastic container, or cookie jar!
