CHOCOLATE COOKIES WITH PEANUT BUTTER M&M’S

I found this chocolate cookie recipe years ago, and I use it as a base for so many recipes.   When Laurie and I were looking for a fun cookie recipe for Valentine’s Day, we looked no further that this recipe.  We decided to change it up a little and add the peanut butter M&M’s and what we ended up with was this delicious and beautiful Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter M&M’s.
You will need:

1 cup butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
2/3 cup Brown Sugar (packed)
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/4 Cups Flour
2/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Bag Valentine’s Mix Peanut Butter M&M’s
Chocolate Cookie dough

To make the chocolate cookie dough, mix together the dry ingredients (including the cocoa powder) and set aside.  Cream together the butter and white and brown sugars.  Mix in the eggs and vanilla.  Finally, add in the dry ingredients 1 cup at a time.

Add Valentines Peanut Butter M&M's

Add 3/4 of the bag of Valentines Peanut Butter M&M’s to the chocolate cookie dough.

Add more Peanut Butter M&M's to the cookie dough ball

Take a spoonful of cookie dough and roll it into a ball.  Press some of the left-over Peanut Butter M&M’s onto the cookie dough ball. This will allow some of the colorful M&M’s to show up on the top of the baked Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter M&M’s.
