Let's begin with the kids choice. Double Chocolate M&M cookies. Original here. Oh Yes! Name alone says it all, no? Begin by preheating oven to 325. Now whisk together in one bowl, your flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In another bowl, that is a medium microwave safe bowl, place the chopped semisweet or milk chocolate and the butter. Microwave for one minute at 50% power. Stir. Microwave again at 50% power for one minute and stir well. If chocolate is not completely melted, continue microwaving for 30 seconds at 50% power until chocolate and butter are well combined. Let it cool to room temp for a few minutes.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the choolate mixture,sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until combined. Gradually mix in the flour mixture till just combined. Stir in your M&M's. Drop dough onto cookie sheets, lined with parchment or silpats, bout 1 1/2 inches apart. I used my medium sized pampered chef scoop for these. Now, place 5 or 6 M&M's on top to make them look ever so pretty. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Tops will be slightly flattened and have a few cracks. They will be soft. Let them hang out on the cookie sheet for about 2-3 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. These are a wonderful thing and a child-pleaser for sure. This would be a perfect cookie to make with the seasonal colored M&Ms that come out for Easter, Christmas, etc. OK, so, May I just tell you.. I fell in love with these Oatmeal Coconut Chewies. Original here. Dunno what it is, but it is just sublime to me. And it couldn't be any easier to make.
Preheat your oven to 350. Cream together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla, in bowl of an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Add your dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in your oatmeal and coconut. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment lined or silpat covered cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes until set but not overly browned. If you prefer a crispier version, bake a couple minutes more. Oh, these are fantastic cookies. I love the buttery flavor along with the hint of coconut and oatmeal. The chewy factor is the bomb. Try 'em! Like now.
