Mini M&M'S Cookies Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com Mini chocolate chip cookies with M&M'S Minis!

It’s back to school time! I know I will cry like a baby when Caleb is old enough to go to school, but I do look forward to him coming home and telling me about his day. I picture us sitting at the table talking, laughing, working on homework, and enjoying cookies and milk.

We have a few years until it’s homework time and back to school for our little pea, but I made Mini M&M’S® Cookies anyways. We can play pretend school…I will do anything for cookies and I am sure Caleb won’t mind:)

I am normally not a cookie dough girl. I like baked cookies better. I usually wait to eat the finished product, but it was hard to stay out of this cookie dough. Those M&M’S MINIS® kept calling my name!

I rolled the dough into teaspoons and baked the cookies until they were slightly golden brown around the edges.

    My favorite way to use mms is in trail mix! I mix 1 cup salted cashews, 1 cup raw almonds, 1 cup raisins, 1 cup mini pretzel twists, and 1 cup mini mms. It’s a sweet and salty treat that is always delicious!

    2 1/4 c. flour
    1 t. baking soda
    1/2 t. salt
    1 c. soft butter
    1 c. brown sugar
    1 small box instant pudding mix (vanilla or chocolate)
    2 eggs
    1 t. vanilla extract
    1 1/2 c. M&Ms
    1/2 – 1 c. nuts of your choice (optional)

    Preheat oven to 350. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.
    In another bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until very fluffy–about 5 minutes. Beat in the dry pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts (if using). Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Edges should be golden brown and centers slightly soft (but not doughy!). Let rest on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before moving to rack to cool.

    Here’s my easy recipe for frosting; I assume you’d like us to post it here?

    Soften 3 sticks of unsalted butter and beat till soft and creamy. Beat in one lb. of confectioner’s sugar, in dribs and drabs. Take your time with this, increasing the beater speed to high after your add the sugar, then going back to medium after 10-20 seconds. Add ½ tsp of vanilla; I use the best Madagascar vanilla. then just keep up the beating until the frosting is just the right spreadable texture. Ice your cake or cupcakes and then press in as many M+Ms as you like. For special occasions, I hand-select M+M colors from the M+M store in Times Square. Red/white/blue for July 4th; red/green for Xmas; blue/purple/pink for birthdays.

    We do M&M pancakes. I know they sound more like dessert but it is only for special occasions.

    M&M Pancakes

    3/4 cup AP flour
    3/4 cup WW flour
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    3 Tbs sugar
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 C low-fat buttermilk
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 Tbs canola oil
    1 large egg
    1 large egg white
    1 cup of mini M&M’s

    Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk together. In a separate bowl combine buttermilk, eggs, oil, and vanilla and whisk well. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until moistened and combined.

    Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet to medium heat. Coat pan with non-stick spray or a little butter and then pour on pancake batter.

    A great party snack: fill your prettiest bowl with a combination of M&M’s and your favorite salty nuts. Peanuts or cashews are good. I guarantee you, the bowl will be empty at the end of the night! Too good to resist, even for adults.

    This was my first attempt at adding cornstarch to cookies. The recipe only called for a teaspoon, but they were delicious. I give full credit to Tracey.

    Soft and Chewy Double Chocolate M&M Cookies

    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tsp cornstarch
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 large egg, at room temperature
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup mini M&Ms

    1 Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
    2 In a medium bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt together (you could just whisk, but I like to sift cocoa powder to make sure I get all the lumps out). In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and then the vanilla. With the mixer on low, gradually add the dry ingredients, beating just until combined. Mix in the mini M&M’s.
    3 Using a small cookie scoop (mine measures about 1 1/2 inches across), portion the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes (rotating the baking sheets halfway through if you’re doing both at once) or until the edges of the cookies are set (the centers may look underdone – don’t overbake!). Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks and let the cookies cool for a few minutes then remove the cookies to the wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with all of the dough.

    Yield: 2 dozen cookies

    Maria in NJ ~ Dolcelicious Bake Shoppe — August 28, 2013 @ 8:26 am

    M&M cake pops

    4 cups cake crumbs (about 14 ounces)
    1/4 cup frosting (not whipped cream frosting), at room temperature
    1/4 cup if mini m&m’s
    1/2 cup chocolate jimmies
    8 ounces Candy Melts
    Vegetable oil, as needed
    16 (6-inch) lollipop sticks

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
    Place the cake crumbs and frosting in a large bowl and mash them together with a spoon just until a dense moist dough forms, add m&m’s and mix until the frosting is evenly incorporated with no visible lumps. Using your hands, roll the mixture into 16 (1-1/2-inch) balls (about the size of a ping-pong ball) and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the cake balls are firm but not frozen, about 30 minutes.
    Meanwhile, line a second baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the sanding sugar in a small bowl and set it and the baking sheet aside.
    When the cake balls are ready, place the Candy Melts in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. (The mixture should be the consistency of softly whipped cream.) If it’s too thick, add vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until it reaches the desired consistency. (Alternatively, fill a medium saucepan with 2 inches of water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low so the water is just simmering. Place the Candy Melts in a heatproof bowl large enough to sit over the water without touching it. Stir until melted.)
    Remove 2 of the cake balls from the freezer. Dip 1/2 inch of a lollipop stick into the melted candy, then insert it about 1 inch into a cake ball. (The melted candy coating helps the cake ball stay on the stick.) Immediately dip the cake ball into the melted candy and turn to coat completely. Gently tap and twirl the stick several times on the edge of the bowl to form a thin, even coating, letting the excess drip off.
    Immediately dip the cake pop into the sanding sugar, turn to coat, and sprinkle additional sugar as needed to coat the pop completely. Hold the cake pop upright until the coating starts to set, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Place on the second prepared baking sheet. (Don’t worry, the coating will be set enough that the pops will retain their round shape after you lay them down.) Repeat with the second cake ball, then repeat with the remaining cake balls, coating 2 at a time. (If the melted candy starts to cool and thicken, reheat until it’s melted again.)
    Let the cake pops sit at room temperature until the candy coating is completely set and hardened, about 15 minutes. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

    Chocolate Lasagna
    INGREDIENTS
    1 package regular Oreo cookies (Not Double Stuff) – about 36 cookies
    6 Tablespoon butter, melted
    1- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    2 Tablespoons cold milk
    1- 12 ounce tub Cool Whip, divided
    2 – 3.9 ounce packages Chocolate Instant Pudding.
    3 1/4 cups cold milk
    1 and 1/2 cups mini M&M’s
    DIRECTIONS
    1. Begin by crushing 36 Oreo cookies. I used my Manual food processor for this, but you could also place them in a large ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin or meat mallet. When the Oreos have turned into fine crumbs, you are done.
    2. Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in 6 tablespoons melted butter and use a fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. When the butter is distributed, transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.
    3. Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 Tablespoons of milk, and sugar, and mix well. Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread this mixture over the oreo crust.
    4. In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the previous cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further.
    5. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini M & M’s evenly over the top. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.

    Ingredients:
    • 1 stick unsalted butter- room temperature

    •1 cup all-purpose whole wheat flour

    Frozen M&M Cookies
    Ingredients
    275g/9¾oz butter
    275g/9¾oz soft light brown sugar
    225g/8oz granulated sugar
    2 large free-range eggs
    1 tbsp vanilla extract
    475g/1lb 1oz plain flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    300g/10½oz M&Ms
    sea salt
    Preparation method
    Put the butter and sugars into a large mixing bowl. Beat together with an electric hand whisk until smooth and light in colour.
    Break in the eggs one at a time, mixing as you break in each egg. Once the eggs are combined, add the vanilla extract.
    Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix in with a wooden spoon until completely incorporated. Add the the M&Ms and mix in until thoroughly combined. Divide the dough in half.
    Place each half onto a large sheet of cling film. Roll the dough into a wide sausage shape and wrap in the cling film, twisting the ends to seal. Each sausage will make nine large cookies (but you can roll them smaller and make more). The dough sausages can be frozen at this point. However if you wish to bake them straightaway, chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes before use.
    Once ready to use the cookie dough, remove from the freezer and allow to warm up enough to slice. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
    Slice the dough sausage into nine discs and place onto a non-stick baking tray or a tray that has been lined with baking parchment.
    Sprinkle each cookie with a tiny pinch of salt and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until they are golden-brown on the edge and slightly paler in the centre.

    Recipe? The best way to eat M&M’s is spinkled over Umpqua brand vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup over the top! When it starts to melt, stir it all together and viola…chocolate M&M ice cream soup!
