Fun with M&M’S: Chocolate Chip Cookies For Movie Night

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This post is sponsored by M&M’S. See how the crispy, milk chocolate characters are making their way into our movie-watching this weekend!

Happy Friday! What are you doing this weekend? The boys are away with their great grandmother, so that means that Greg and I can enjoy a movie night and catch the Oscars. When we have movie nights, we try to have some special snacks set aside for the occasion. Oftentimes, I bake some variation of the chocolate chip cookie, since they are Greg’s favorite sweet treat.

This weekend, we are having chocolate chip cookies and a variety of M&M’S candies. M&M’S Milk Chocolate candies have been one of the most loved chocolate treats in the world since 1941. They are a perfect match for popcorn munching during movie-watching festivities. Am I right? In celebration of the Oscars, M&M’S is debuting a fun commercial where they invade the movies. Check it out during the Oscars, but in the meantime, check out Red’s Red Carpet tips (here & here) and enjoy the chocolate chip cookie recipe below!

We are big fans of chocolate chip cookies, and I love finding new takes on the treat to make. A favorite so far are brown butter chocolate chip cookies. As for M&Ms, my favorite way to enjoy them is throwing a few handfuls of them into hot buttered popcorn. So good!
