Whip up a batch of these one-bowl Easter M&M cookies, just in time for Easter Sunday! I love a good cookie – especially those with M&Ms or chocolate chips hiding inside.

Of course, you can make these any time. After all, Spring just started. You could just as easily call these “Spring M&Ms Cookies” and make them all the way up until summer.

Then, just switch them out for patriotic M&Ms (assuming you live in the US) and call them Independence Day Cookies.

You can also try my recipe for Halloween Chocolate Chip cookies, which is a slightly different version of this cookie. While you’re at it, you may want to read my tips on freezing cookie dough, so you always have some on hand.

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 box Easter M&M Candies


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter. (I love using my mixer for this, but it can be done by hand)
  • Mix in the eggs and vanilla, stirring well after each addition.

  • Add the flour and baking soda to the bowl and mix until fully combined.
  • Take heaping tablespoons-full of dough and roll each into a ball. (This cookie scoop is the best!)
  • Place cookie dough balls on prepared cookie sheet, spaced 2-inches apart.
  • Gently press down on the top of each cookie dough ball with the back of a spoon.

  • Bake for 8-10 mintues, until cookies are slightly brown around the edges.
  • Remove cookies from oven and immediately top each cookie with M&Ms.
  • Let cookies cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet.
  • Carefully transfer cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

These cookies will turn out best if made with room temperature ingredients. I advise pulling everything out and letting it sit on the counter for 30 minutes prior to baking.
Uneaten cookies can be stored in an air-tight containter at room temperature for up to 3 days. Make sure they are fully cooled before placing inside the container.
