Kind of like monster cookies, but better…there’s a treasure…a surprise in these cookies! These M&M’s surprise cookies will have you grabbing cookie after cookie, and are from The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook: 80 Irresistible Recipes with Only 5 to 15 Minutes of Prep Time by Mary Younkin of the blog Barefeetinthekitchen.com
You may recognize Mary’s name, because I’ve shared recipes on my blog (and she has a wildly popular blog) from her first two cookbooks:
- Cheesy chicken and rice enchilada casserole from her first book The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook: Simple Family-Friendly Recipes for Everyday Home Cooking
- Whole wheat banana bread muffins recipe from her second book The Weekday Lunches & Breakfasts Cookbook: Easy & Delicious Home-Cooked Meals for Busy Families
I love knowing other bloggers in the food blog community, they are a talented bunch, and Mary is not only one of the very talented ones (hello – 3 cookbooks…writing a cookbook is not easy) and is one of the sweetest. We’ve become “internet friends” and as I’ve had my kids and other life things, Mary is just always there with encouraging words of love and support. Kindness like that doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated!
These cookies are so good!
They’re soft cookies but have a wonderful crunch – from the cornflakes (although you could use graham crackers or other mix ins you’d like!)
Because of M&M’s, these are great cookies for themed events and holidays. Think green/red M&M’s for Christmas, or red/pink for Valentines day, light blue or pink ones for baby showers…things like that!
These cookies are really easy to make. They have great texture and the perfect sweetness to them.
