These Chocolate M&M Cookies are thick, soft, and chewy, and they are just oozing with gooey chocolate chips and coconut M&M’s.

These cookies are no joke, kids. They taste like fudgy brownies with a hint of coconut (which you can omit if you don’t like the flavor of coconut). The festive M&M’s make them perfect for Easter – I suggest making a double batch, they will disappear in no time!
If you are looking for a fun treat for Easter, a baby shower, a birthday party, any occasion really, I suggest making these cookies! They are cute and festive, but they’re totally easy to make. Also, they are one of the best cookies I’ve ever made. I am a brownie freak, so obviously I made a cookie that mimics a brownie and I LOVE it! I loaded them up with lots of chocolate chips and M&M’s – I chose the coconut ones because I also added a touch of coconut extract to the cookie dough. The coconut flavor is subtle though, the chocolate is definitely the star here!
A little white chocolate drizzle just dresses these cookies up and make them the perfect treat for your next special occasion!
I mean, who could resist this?
