If you're looking for The Best M&M's Cookies, you've arrived! The secret to soft, chewy cookies is pudding mix. These cookies are easy to make and easy to customize with your favorite M&M flavors.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 box (3.4 ounce) Instant Vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 package (11 ounce) holiday M&M'S (about 1 ½ cups)
  • ¼ cup holiday sprinkles


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with sugars until creamy. Add in pudding mix, eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Fold in M&M'S and sprinkles.
  3. Drop by large tablespoon (I use this scoop for perfect sized cookies) onto parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a 350°F oven for 11-13 minutes. Do not over bake, cookies may appear soft. Allow to cool and enjoy!


  • If you want thicker cookies, chill dough for at least an hour before baking.
  • STORAGE: Store cookies in airtight container for up to one week. Or freeze in airtight container for up to three months.
