Print Pin


  • 1 cup 2 sticks cold, unsalted butter, cubed
  • cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder regular cocoa powder can be used
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. coarse salt regular salt can be used
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup Peppermint Or Mint Holiday M&M Candies
  • 1/2 cup Holiday M&M Minis


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • 2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar. Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Blend in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed. Mix in the cocoa powder until well blended.
  • 3. Add the flour, salt and baking powder to the bowl and mix on low speed just until incorporated. Fold in the M&M candies with a spatula.
  • 4. The dough is very thick! Transfer the dough to a work surface and knead briefly by hand to be sure the ingredients are well combined. I kneaded mine in the bowl, and that worked out just fine.
  • 5. Using a standard size cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheets. To make 36 cookies, 12 cookies should fit onto each sheet.
  • 6. Bake for approx 10 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes on cookie sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
