Easy Cookies With M&M's
Kids Can Make In 15 Minutes!

These are easy cookies to make with m&m's, and your kids will love to help with them. Kids love cookies and chocolate, and these child friendly, fun m&m cookies fit right in. We like to add seasonally colored m&m's to make these cookies more festive. For Easter we add in the spring pastel colored m&m's while Valentine's gets more reds, whites and pinks, while Christmas gets Reds and greens. This m&m cookie recipe is easy to follow and a time-saver, taking just 15 minutes to get the dough made and the cookies into the oven. Like all cookies that we make at home, they never last long but they are always tasty and they don't usually last into the next day.

Give this one a try with your kids for a homemade snack you will want to make again and again.

This is a quick 2 step recipe for m&m cookies your whole family will enjoy.
