Full Answer

The following ingredients are needed to make double chocolate M&M cookies:

  • 3/4 of a cup of M&Ms
  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 ounces of good quality milk chocolate (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  1. Melt the chocolate
  2. First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, then mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together. Next, melt the butter and chocolate in a heat-resistant bowl suspended over a pan of boiling water. Make sure the water does not touch the bowl or the chocolate will burn.

  3. Mix the cookie dough
  4. Combine the chocolate mixture with the eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Mix at medium speed in a food mixer; once combined, gradually add the flour mixture, followed by the M&Ms. Gently fold the M&Ms to make sure they are distributed evenly.

  5. Bake the cookies
  6. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to place cookie balls on a baking parchment lined baking tray and bake for around 15 minutes before leaving to cool on a wire rack.
