Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft, buttery, chewy and slightly crispy and irresistible! The perfect cookie for cookie exchanges, holiday parties or just because you’re craving a warm cookie.
♡ 12 DAYS OF SUGAR. . .DAY 12♡
I can’t believe this year’s sugar craze has so quickly come to an end. I’m in denial because if my 12 Days of Sugar is over, then that means another year has almost come and gone. I know I say this all the time, but time flies and I really kind of hate it.
It’s not a secret that I am a chocolate chip cookie junkie, so it was only fitting that I end with these Christmas Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies. Now the only thing that might be better than a classic chocolate chip cookie, is a classic chocolate chip with lots of Christmas M&M’s (or any M&M’s) added in, right?
These cookies are currently at the top of my “favorite cookie list”. Soft, chewy, buttery, loaded with chocolate chips and M&M’s, they’re basically perfect in every way.
These cookies are simple to make, but do require 2 hours of chilling time. Don’t panic, just make the dough and then run some errands, clean your toilets, do a load or two of laundry, or whatever else you need to do. You also can leave the dough in the fridge for up to 3 days. That means you have dough on hand and ready to go when you get the sudden urge for a warm cookie, or if you have guests pop in. Also, the longer the dough chills, the better the flavor becomes.
SHOULD I USE MILK OR SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS?
It’s definitely a personal preference here. I will either use all milk chocolate chips (Guittard brand of course) or 1/2 semi-sweet and 1/2 milk. I think these would also be delicious with some white chocolate chips thrown in.
You’re going to love these cookies because who can resist big M&Ms and chocolate chips staring back at you? I definitely can’t. They’re perfect holiday party cookies because they’re easy, festive, and so good.
These are just the cookie that Santa wants left out for him on Christmas Eve. Don’t forget the glass of milk.
