    my3beachbabes's Note:

    I found this on the back of the mint M&M's. I haven't tried it yet! I'm putting it here for safe keeping! You also need 24 pieces of 12x12 inch cellophane squares for some reason I couldn't add it in the recipe.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (11 ounce) bag M & M mint chocolate candies
    • 1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
    • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
    • 1 (16 ounce) container vanilla frosting
    • 3 inches round cookie cutters
    • green food coloring
    • 1/2 inch holiday ribbon


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Tint the cookie dough with the green food coloring and flavor it with the peppermint extract. Roll it to 1/ inch thickness, and then press out 24 circles using the cookie cutter. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
    3. 3
      When the cookies are cool, spread with frosting. Before the frosting dries, arrange red and green M&M's over the frosting (so it looks like a Christmas ornament).
    4. 4
      When the frosting is firm, gently wrap the cookies in cellophane and tie the ends with ribbon.

      These cookies were alright. I didn't like the big m&m's on them much...and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't make them look like Christmas ornaments :( I had to use Mint Crisp M&M's because I couldn't fine the regular Mint M&M's, and my pack only had dark green, light green, and white...unfortuneatly no red ones. They were fun to try though. Thanks!
