Double Chocolate M&M Cookies

I know I already have a chocolate cookie recipe that's really similar to this, and it really is a great recipe. But I wanted to try something different... Something that produced a softer and chewier cookie, and this was the winner! I've made these cookies twice in the past two weeks and I'm still not sick of them. They're so chewy and chocolatey (is that a word?) and taste awesome with a mix of M&M's and white chocolate chips. This recipe also makes a lot of cookies - almost 4 dozen so there's a perfect amount to eat and share! (Recipe courtesy of Two Peas and Their Pod)
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups M&M's
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat and set aside. In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking soda, salt and coca and set aside. With a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time. Next, add in vanilla extract and mix until blended. Slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix until flour disappears. Stir in M&M's and chocolate chips. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are set around the edges, but still soft in the center. Don't over bake. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Move to a cooling rack and cool completely.
