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.

    Sondra,

    I love this new M & M’s. They are truly MEGA which means the shell is bigger and has more crunch. They truly were perfect in cookies. I will stop by your sight and make sure I am following.

    Blessings and thanks for stopping by,

    Meeghan,

    I saw them in a LARGE display at Walmart today. They were in the from of the store. You will love these. They have so much more shell which gives them a lot more crunch.

    Wow! I am definitely looking into those mega M&Ms…. and making some of those cookies! They look amazing!

  • Sondra @ Savers4Life May 26, 2014, 9:43 PM

    You just can’t go wrong with M & M’s in anything! Giving these a try.

  • Courtney Conover May 26, 2014, 10:36 AM

    Oh, Dear. Houston: We have a problem. This is SO not the recipe to read when I am hungry any my sweet tooth is wrestling with my good conscience. (Trust me, the former ALWAYS wins!)

    Is Walmart open on Memorial Day? I just checked the cupboard, and we’re fresh out of M&Ms…

    Stopping by from SITS!

    (I am now following you on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, too, because I am in dire need of new crock-pot recipes!)

    Tammy,

    I have been taking more pictures outside under my back porch. It has a lot of natural light and it is out of the sun. Why did I not think of doing this before now?? I have NO idea. Thanks so much for pinning my M & M Mega Cookies. We love these cookies. The MEGA M & M’s make have more crunch because the M & M’s have more shell. I lOVE IT!

    Ritchil,

    These cookies are really as good as they look. The Mega M & M’s have more shell so they were a little crunchy. I love when I was cracking the shell when biting the cookie. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
