Giant M&M Chocolate Cookies

I decided to make these as we visited the M&M shop just before Christmas and we ended up buying rather a lot!!!


My youngest son asked if I could make some chocolate cookies with some of them so I decided to make extra large ones.



These are a slightly altered version of my chocolate chip cookies and double the size.



They are soft in the middle and crunchy around the edges and taste delicious.

To start making these cookies preheat the oven and line two baking trays with parchment.


In a stand mixer beat the butter, caster sugar and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.



Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix again until incorporated.



Add the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt until a soft dough has formed.



Add the M&M's to the dough and mix again. If you want to sprinkle some on the top keep them back for later.



Form into 9 equal balls and place on the baking trays. These cookies do spread a lot so don’t place them too closely together. You will need to bake several batches.



Bake for 6 minutes then add a few M&M's on each cookie.


Put them back in the oven and bake again for another 8 minutes.



Transfer to a wire rack after a few minutes to cool completely.

Sarah’s extra slice......


You will get roughly 9 large cookies from the mix.

Do not bake longer than 14 minutes the cookies will set as they cool.


The cookies spread a lot so make sure you leave lots of room between the cookies! I baked 3 cookies per tray.
