Chewy, soft and deliciously crispy edges, these M&M Cowboy Cookies are packed with so much yumminess. . . coconut, Rice Krispies, chocolate chips and M&M’s. You can’t go wrong with these babies.
I’m sure you’ve all of heard of cowboy cookies, but just in case you haven’t let me tell you a little bit about them. They’re basically a classic chocolate chip cookie with a lot of goodness going on inside of them.
They are full of coconut, Rice Krispies (or Cornflakes), nuts (optional), and chocolate chips. I went one step further added mini M&M’s to mine, thus making them M&M Cowboy Cookies. I have no idea how or why these cookies got their name, but I’m just going with it.
If you like chewy cookies, you are going to love the coconut in these cookies. It makes them extra chewy which if you ask me, is the perfect compliment to the crunch of the Rice Krispies and M&M’s.Now the dough is crazy good and I think I came close to eating my weight in cookie dough. One more thing, while I love, love, love warm cookies, I actually prefer eating these once they’ve completely cool because then you fully experience the chewiness and the crispy edges.
