  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar (firmly packed )
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs (slightly beaten)
  • 2 cups semi dark chocolate chips
  • 11 ounce bag M&Ms


  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • In small bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attached, beat butter, sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg, mixing well. Add flour mixture, and beat slowly to incorporate, then faster to blend well. Stir in chocolate chips and half the M&Ms.
  • Drop batter in 2-tablespoon portions about 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Top with additional M&Ms, pressing into the batter so that they stick.
  • Bake in preheated oven until edges of cookies are brown, about 6 to 9 minutes.
  • Let cookies cool on pan about 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks with a spatula. Serve warm or cool. Store in airtight container, or freeze for longer storage.
