Peanut butter is one of the best things ever created!

When I was pregnant with my 2nd baby, I would have some strong peanut butter cravings and I’m not even embarrassed to admit I ate it by the spoonful on more than one occasion.

Peanut butter everything was on my mind all the time and I loved these Peanut Butter M&M Cookies!

I used a classic cookie recipe as my base

I shared a recipe a while back for my classic peanut butter cookie recipe. It was my very first cookie I ever baked by myself so the recipe kinda holds a special place in my heart.

I wondered how in the world they could get any better then I dumped in a cup of chocolate candies! I mean peanut butter and chocolate, is there a better flavor combination?

How to make Peanut Butter M&M Cookie:

These cookies are pretty easy to make. You start by mixing your wet ingredients and your dry ingredients separately.

Then you slowly mix in your dry ingredients with the wet ingredients to make the batter.

Fold in your M&M’s and then mix them in. Scoop out 1-inch balls of the dough and roll them up. Place on the baking sheet and bake in the oven. Enjoy!
