Super Stuffed Dark Chocolate M&M Cookies

by foodlikecake

I can’t believe I didn’t share these cookies with you guys earlier. I only made them a few days ago but still, just too good to wait any longer. The cookies are thick and fudgy, studded with dark chocolate chips and dark chocolate M&Ms- so good! They’re rather photogenic too 🙂 Look at all the pretty M&Ms!


Ingredients: Cookies

1 and 1/2 stick (3/4 cup) unsalted butter

1/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs, cold

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup Hershey’s Super Dark Cocoa Powder

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1 cup dark chocolate M&Ms

Recipe: Cookies

Preheat oven to 350F.

Add 1-2 inches of water to a medium saucepan. Heat the water until it’s barely simmering.

Mix butter, cocoa powder, the white sugar, and salt in a medium heat proof bowl. Rest bowl over saucepan, making sure the bottom does not get wet.

Stir occasionally until all the ingredients are combined. Don’t worry if the batter is gritty. Take off heat.

While the mixture is still warm, quickly beat in the brown sugar.

When the mixture is cool, about 5 minutes later, beat in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla.

When the batter is shiny, beat in the flour, cornstarch, and flour.

Mix in the chocolate chips and M&Ms.

Roll into large balls, about 2 tablespoons, and place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.
