Chocolate M&M Cookies! Thick, soft, and chewy! #easter #chocolate #m&ms #dessert

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!

Chocolate M&M Cookies! Thick, soft, and chewy! #easter #chocolate #m&ms #dessert

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 made these today and they were delicious! However, they didnt turn out to look like anything in the pictures! My cookies were more smooth, and didnt look as cracked and moist as yours. My cookies did not spread either. Do you think you know what went wrong? I halved the recipe, and refrigerated the dough for 20 minutes. :)

      I’m glad you liked them, Amanda! My guess is the reason they didn’t spread is because you chilled the dough. Baking them at room temp helps them spread more :)
