These fun and colorful giant M&M chocolate chip cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth and chocolate cravings, and just make you happy as you eat (and make) them!



  • 1  cup butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini M&M candies


  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment or baking mats, and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Using an electric mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the cold butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well combined, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat well.
  4. Add the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix to combine well.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips and M&M’s.
  6. Working with 1/4 cup dough at a time, roll the dough into a ball and then lightly press it on the pan so that it’s slightly flattened. Place 6 cookies per baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and let rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing and placing them on a wire rack.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough.


  • These giant cookies are SO much fun! Feel free to use a combo of milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips and a combo of regular and mini M&M’s if you’d like.
