How to Make this Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  • You will need a mixer, and in this post I'm using a Kitchen Aid standing mixer. First, you add 1 stick of unsalted room temperature butter into the mixing bowl. 
  • Next, you will add 1/2 cup of brown sugar (1/4 light and 1/4 dark).
  • Then, add 1/4 cup of granulated white sugar, 1 egg, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract into your mixing bowl.
  • Once you've combined all ingredients you will mix them together on medium speed for about 3-4 minutes or until well combined.
  • After these ingredients have combined, stop and scrape the sides of the mixer.
  • Then, add in the 1/4 cup of vanilla pudding mix(do not make the pudding mix, treat is as a dry ingredient), 1 1/4 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. 
  • On low speed mix these ingredients for about 1 minute or until well combined.
  • Next, we're going to add the 3/4 cup of M & M's in a cup.
  • Lastly,  we're going to add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. 
  • Once you've combined the M &M's and the semi-sweet chocolate chips, mix  on low speed for about 30 seconds.
  • When the dough is finished mixing be sure to scrape the dough off the paddle using a spatula. 

Time to Chill the Dough

  • You will want to chill your dough for 2-3 hours,  in the refrigerator. You don't want to skip these step, because really helps keep your cookies; thick, soft, and chewy. No one wants a hard, flat, and  thin cookie, so chill your dough! 
  • I simply wrapped my dough in plastic wrap and let it chill for 3 hours. 
  • After your dough has chilled, allow it to unthaw for a few minutes. While you're waiting line your large baking pan with parchment paper.

It's Baking Time

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees,  begin to roll the dough in your hands into  equal sized balls. Place the balls onto the parchment paper, you should be able to make 12 cookies.
  • Now use your fingers to slightly  flatten your dough into mounds. Once you're finished you can place more red and green M & M's onto your cookie dough to make them more festive.
  • Place your cookies into the oven for about 10-12 minutes. Be sure to watch your cookies you don't want them to overcook. 
  • Remove your cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on a cooling rack.
