Mini M&M’S® Cookies, fun bite size cookies that make a great after school snack!
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:)
These Mini M&M’S® Cookies are almost too cute to eat! They are tiny and perfect for a sweet after school snack!
I used M&M’S MINIS® to make the cookies extra special. They are so colorful and fun!
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.
Cookie perfection! The cookies are soft, chewy, and filled with the sweet burst of M&M’S MINIS®. Grab a glass of cold milk and you’ve got the perfect after school snack! The kiddos will gobble these up! And if you eat a stack before they get home from school, I won’t tell:)

I made these cookies today and they are amazing! My husband even asked me when I learned how to make cookies. Ha! I ended up with about 6 dozen cookies instead of 3 dozen like your recipe states. Even better!
Yum! These M&M cookies look and must taste delicious! We’re pretty sure anything with M&M’s is!
These cookies are so amazingly good and easy to make! I have made them three times in the past two weeks. My family can’t get enough of them. These are my new favorite go-to cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
I made these ad while they tastes good, they didn’t spread. What did I do wrong?
I made these and they tasted good, but didn’t spread nicely. What did I do wrong?
Did you add too much flour?
Mine also didn’t spread… such a shame since they took so long to roll.
I love m&m,and these are such wonderful recipes.
This is my new favorite “go-to” cookie recipe. I switch out the M&Ms for whatever I have on hand. I’m embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve made these cookies since you posted the recipe! A definite winner! Thanks!!
Oops! I just realized I posted about these cookies back in September. Goes to show how much I love them! :o)
Thanks for your recipe.
I make cookies and make and and eat it considering as junkful indulgence. once a month or so. when it is made I clearly call it junk and eat it. I dont understand how so many people can call it an after school snack.
your thoughts will help me understand why people think of this as an afterschool snack.
What’s the harm in a couple cookies after a long hard day at school? As you said you enjoy cookies why can’t children? Nobody said they give their children a dozen everyday after school.
The grocery store near my house gives free cookies to toddlers, so we go by there pretty often and my daughter is usually satisfied with the offerings (sugar with rainbow sprinkles or chocolate chip – usually sugar) but lately she has been screeching about the “treat” cookies in the display (we call M&Ms treats around here for potty training purposes). The cookies are huge and nearly $2 each! I had an extra bag of mini M&Ms and yours was the first recipe that popped up in the Google search. These are so good! Thank you for sharing!
These are still my favorite m&m cookies to this day!! Thank you so much for this recipe.
Hi! I want to ask if it’s ok to just use 2 cups of M&M minis instead of 1 cup M&Ms & 1 cup choco chips? 🙂 Please advise. Thank you! 🙂
Delicious cookie recipe as always and M&Ms give the cookies such a nice brightness. Thanks for sharing!
Best cookies I have ever made. Made exactly as many as you said they would make. Whole family is very happy. I will be making over And over again. Thank you. So colorful and fun. Went well with my sons birthday theme of rainbows for his 3rd birthday.
Replaced the extra cup of mini chocolate chips with an additional cup of mini M&Ms. Cookie heaven!!! Thanks for the recipe!
Followed recipe exactly as listed. Cookies did not spread. Look like rainbow golf balls.
Cookies also didn’t flatten, although I used a tablespoon to scoop. They tasted great though.
