  • 1/2 cup (110g) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (70g) sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups (220g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3.5 oz. (100g) Peanut M&M’s (yellow, red, black)


  1. Add the butter, sugars and salt to a large bowl and mix on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Add the flour and baking soda and mix until just combined. Place in the fidge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180°C). Line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Make small balls out of the dough and flatten – place on the prepared baking sheets with a lot of space in beween (the cookies spread a lot). Top the cookies with the M&M’s in the order black, red and yellow and bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes – the cookies are done, when they get some color at the edges. Take out of the oven and let cool down a bit on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool down completely.


  • Enjoy baking!
