XXL M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

XXL M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 2 dozen.

How fun are these?  Thick, chewy, and delicious too.  I don't have a muffin top pan, so I couldn't make them exactly like the Picky Palate does, but they still turned out great, if I do say so myself!

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. packed light brown sugar
2 extra large eggs
2 T. pure vanilla
3-3/4 c. all purpose flour
1-1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
12 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag M&M’s (you’ll have some left over)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer beat the butter and sugars until well beaten.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined.  Place flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips.  Do not mix in M&M’s!!

Scoop 1/4 Cup of dough and press into a muffin top pan (or just press onto a parchment or silpat lined cookie sheet).  Now, press your M&M’s onto pressed cookies.  This way they won’t break apart!!  Bake for 12-15 minutes, until edges just start to turn golden brown.  Let cool for 10 minutes on muffin top pan or cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.  Grab a tall glass of milk and EAT until your hearts content
