This recipe was found on the back of a bag (5 3/4oz bag) of M&Ms - the price? $.29 for the bag... wow - times have changed - the recipe also calls for Robin Hood Flour. Enjoy! Just to make life easier 1/8 cup is 2 tbsp.

These cookies were good! Made some for my 3 and 4 year old and they just loved them. Very soft and chewy! Next time I think I will double up on the recipe. Thanks***

I love this recipe I doubled it on the website and used a whole 14oz bag of m&m's. The cookies were chewy and moist.

These are really good. The dough itself is absolutely perfect! I did feel that there was a bit too many M&M's though. I will either decrease them to about 1/2 a cup or straight swap them for the mini M&Ms. Either way, I will definitely make these again!
