  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • cups all-purpose flour measure before sifting
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 heaping tsp. salt
  • 1/2 bag 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 bag Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate M&M's Baking Bits
  • 3/4 bag Milk Chocolate M&M's Minis Holiday Baking Bits


  • Pre-heat oven to 375°.
  • Cream butter and sugars together. It's up to you whether you use light brown or dark brown sugar, depending on your preferred cookie texture. I prefer light brown because it lends to a more golden, raised cookie with crunchy edges and a chewy, slightly cake-like center.
  • Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add sifted dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mixing well.
  • Add chocolate chips and chocolate candies, thoroughly mixing into dough.
  • At this point, nuts are an optional add-in, but I always make without.
  • Drop by heaping teaspoon onto cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 375° for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden and done.
  • Serve and enjoy!
