If you’re looking for The Best M&M’s Cookies, you’ve arrived! The secret to soft, chewy cookies is pudding mix!
Last year I made these cookies, took the photos, but then the holidays came too fast and I never had the chance to share the recipe. I got numerous requests on INSTAGRAM to post the recipe, yet I never got around to it. It’s a food blogger problem, too many delicious treats to share this time of year!
So, in an effort to start the season off right, I knew I had to get this one out to you guys! You see, it’s an easy one. I use this base all the time for cookies! You may remember these Pistachio Pudding Cookies from years ago!
I love how versatile this recipe is, you can swap out the pudding mix, and add in your favorite candies or nuts for a new flavor combo!
Today’s recipe uses Vanilla Pudding Mix, holiday sprinkles and festive M&M’S candies! I also use melted butter which adds to the chewiness factor!
I use a 2 Tbsp cookie scoop to make the perfect sized cookie..which results in about 30 cookies from the batch. You can freeze the scooped cookie dough on a cookie sheet too, so that it can be baked later. Once the dough is frozen (about an hour), transfer it to a freezer safe ziploc bag and label it until ready to use (like I did with these Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies).
The only question is, what cookie are you serving to Santa this year?
