This is an adaptation based on the Nestle Toll House original chocolate chip cookie recipe. Great for the holidays, these cookies are fun and festive without all the decorating.

I also use the Nestle Toll House recipe to make the M&M Holiday cookies. But I've never written it down. And sad to say, I dont always have a bag of Nestle Toll House chocolate chips in the house. I do have M&Ms and wanted to make some holiday cookies. Thanks for having the recipe up here! It's now in my Recipe Box!
