These were really good! I didn't make them exactly as instructed just because it was a last minute choice and I only had one small tube of M&M minis so I used those and 2 chopped up Hershey w/ almond bars! (left over stocking candy :) I halved the recipe, they were a little crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle. Perfect, thanks!
I got a care package from my church at home with two 2 oz. packages of regular M&Ms, and the BF LOVES oatmeal cookies, so I divided the recipe by three, and I made a perfect batch of 16 tasty and beautiful cookies. The BF loved them - I guess the size of the M&Ms didn't matter to him! :-) As recommended, I only included one of the 2 oz. bags in the dough, and then I individually placed each of the pieces from the second bag on top of the divided cookie dough after putting it on the baking sheet. They turned out pretty AND delicious!
A+++ I used butter instead of margarine and shortening. I'm making them as we speak and they came out fabulous!
Such a cute photo meant that I ran out and bought mini m and m's! I needed to make something for a pot luck that was 3 hours away. I knew these would travel well. I liked that they had the oatmeal in them. It's a good tip to add the extra pieces on top before baking (to ensure their being colorful). These stack up great in a plastic container. I know they will be a hit at the pot luck. Roxygirl
