M&M Cookies

M&M Cookies

I am super excited to say I am officially going to Blog Your Best 2016! The very first conference put on by Windy City Bloggers Collective. I am super excited to be attending. I can’t wait to learn so many new tips and tricks, and then apply them to Red Velvet Snow!

Any ways, this post is kicking off my Valentine’s Day recipes. Today, I bring to you M&M cookies.


Is there a time of year that M&M cookies aren’t perfect to bake? Whether it is Valentine’s Day or any day M&M’s are a wonderful addition to any cookie. They are such a great size too- one may consider them mini, but I prefer to call them fun sized.

The cookies are puffy, yet not dried out. The mini chocolate chips add a great, extra chocolate-y taste too. Can you ever go overboard on chocolate?


I added 3 M&M’s on top of each cookie before throwing them in the oven. Reference my question about too much chocolate.


Also, I just discovered the app Color Palette. It is my current obsession for photo editing. I don’t have a nice camera, I only take pics off my iPhone- but I really love this app!

Below you’ll find my recipe for M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies!
