  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • stand mixer
  • rubber spatula


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup M&Ms Candies
  • 1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate morsels


  • In a stand mixer, add the softened butter and brown sugar, and cream over medium speed.
  • Add in the vanilla extract, egg, and salt; mix well until combined.
  • Carefully pour in the corn syrup.
  • Add in the baking soda, and slowly add the flour 1/2 a cup at a time.
  • Once all the flour is added, the dough will be slightly sticky. Remove the bowl from your mixer, and fold in the chocolate chips and M&MS.
  • Place dough in the fridge for one hour to chill. I kept mine in the bowl, but you can add it to plastic wrap and form it into a tube if your prefer.
  • To bake- preheat oven to 350 degrees f.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Spoon dough tablespoon-sized dough balls onto your baking sheet. Make sure you only put 6 on a sheet or they will spread into one another.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow too cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan, repeat 2 more times until all 18 cookies are baked.


To Freeze Cookie Dough 
This cookie dough can be frozen for up to one month. To freeze, form balls into 18 double tablespoons. Place them single layers on a baking sheet. Freeze for 2 hours until firm. Add balls to a zippered freezer bag, label and date them with recipe cook time. 
To bake add them from frozen and give them 1-2 minutes extra bake time- so, 11-13 minutes. 
Fresh Factor
Cookies stay fresh for up to 5 days in an airtight container for best taste. 
How to Make 36 Cookies 
You can make 36 cookies if you make these in smaller, tablespoon-sized balls. 
If you want to use just chocolate chips or M&Ms, double the amount called for.
