I came across these new M & M’s at my local Walmart.  They were truly huge or Mega M & M’s and I had to make cookies with them.

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.

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 son’s 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.

Baking Cookie Tip

  • Use butter and eggs at room temperature.  You should be able to leave a fingerprint easily in the butter.
  • Whip the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Do not over mix the flour!
  • Mix in the dry ingredients just until you do not any powder and everything is incorporated.
  • Use parchment paper – I love parchment paper when baking.  Once you remove the cookies from the oven, just slide the parchment paper off the baking sheet with the cookies still on it.  This will allow them to cool.
  • Use an ice cream scoop when scooping out your cookies.  This way they will all be the same size and will bake evenly.
  • Freezing Cookie Dough

  • Scoop the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  You can put the cookies closer together on the baking sheet when freezing them than when you are baking them.  If you scoop the cookie dough out first and then freeze it, you do not have a problem with the dough being as hard as a rock and you cannot scoop it out of a container.  After scooping out the cookie dough, place the baking pan in the freezer until the cookies are frozen.  Place frozen cookies into large freezer zip lock bags and store in the freezer.  This helps the cookies when baking.  The cookies do not spread out so much.  Also, you will have cookies on hand in case of an emergency.
  • Do not overcook your cookies.  Once you remove the cookies from the oven, they will continue to bake.

    • 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.
      Thank so much for stopping by and commenting on my M & M cookies.
      Blessings,
      Diane Roark

    • 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,

  1. 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!)

  2. Oh manzo Diane, these are amazing! I printed to make very, very soon. And, Caleb is dang handsome in the chef attire!!! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

I have finally pinned your post to the Tasty’s Tuesday’s Pinterest Board! 🙂 This is why I am having co-hosts!

    • 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!

      Blessings,
      Diane Roark
