M & M Mega Cookies by Chef Caleb

If you like BIG cookies, you will love these M & M Mega cookies.  I am always looking for something new to put in my cookie dough.  I love baking and sharing cookies with everyone.  Nothing I make brings a smile on someone’s face more than a cookie, especially if it is a Mega cookie.  Kids and adults both enjoy cookies.

My special needs son and the chief baker, Caleb, lights up from ear to ear while baking and handing out cookies he helps make.  He loves baking and wearing his chef hat.   Caleb has had 17 brain surgeries, Cerebral Palsy, and seizures.  You can read more about his story with this link.

 I came across these new M & M’s at my local Walmart.  They were truly huge or Mega M & M’s.

I used these Mega M & M’s in my soft and gooey Chocolate Chip cookie dough and came up with these Mega M & M cookies.  I also used my largest ice cream scoop, 1/4 cup.  These cookies are truly mega cookies with Mega M & M’s.  They were a hit.  I plan on making these cookies a whole lot more.  I will be baking them soon for my sons baseball team.  We will also be baking these cookies this week for a neighborhood garage sale.   Caleb and my youngest daughter are planning on selling cookies and lemonade.  This will be a great experience handling money for both of them.

I believe the secret to building stronger families that stick together, communicate more, and love each other is to cook together, eating around the table together, play together, vacation together, and share God’s love.
