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!


Quick Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, slightly melted
  • ¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (12 oz) bag milk chocolate chips
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Crispy M&M's
  1. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or foil and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Using a mixer, whisk sugars, eggs, butter and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the wet ingredients and mix lightly. Fold in in the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll the dough into small balls. Space the cookies at least 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
  5. Bake for about 5 minutes, remove from oven and press M&M candies into the cookies. Return to oven and bake for another 5 minutes, until golden, but still soft in the center.
  6. Transfer hot cookies to a rack to cool.




I hope you enjoy these lil’ cookies and have a great weekend!

    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!

    I know you probably intended those to be a treat for the kids, but I want a dozen or two for myself. I have such a big sweet tooth!
