A very traditional M&M Cookie recipe. I have always loved these cookies, but when the company introduced the M&M Mini, all their recipes switched over to using them. The problem is… M&Ms are made with milk chocolate and M&M Minis are made with dark chocolate. I like eating the minis out of hand, but didn’t enjoy them nearly as much in the cookies, so I have reverted back to the old-school style.
