Equipment Needed to Make M&M Easter Cookies
Ingredients For Your Sweet and Crunchy White Chocolate M&M Easter Cookies
- Light Brown Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- White Chocolate Chips
- Pastel Easter/Spring M&M's
How To Make M&M Easter Cookies
Step 1: Prep the Wet Ingredients
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the softened butter, sugar, and light brown sugar, and blend together until light and creamy. Add the vanilla and eggs, and blend until smooth.
Step 2: Prep the Dry Ingredients
In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and white chocolate chips, and stir well to blend.
Step 3: Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients
Add the flour mixture a little at a time to the mixing bowl, mixing between additions, and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. When completely blended, add the M&M's.
With a spatula, fold the M&M's into the cookie dough.
Step 4: Baking Time
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper, and using a cookie scoop, scoop 2 scoops of dough for one cookie and place on the parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown around the edges.
For crunchier cookies, leave a few more minutes, watching carefully. Remove from the cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool completely.
Serve and enjoy! This makes approximately 24 large cookies.
What to Serve with Your M&M Easter Cookies
Hot or Cold Milk
One of the most iconic food combinations of all time is the classic cookie and milk combo. It can either be hot or cold as long as the cookie will be dunked into it.
Tea or Coffee
If not a fan of milk, you can either pair the cookie with a cup of tea or coffee.

How To Store Sweet and Crunchy White Chocolate M&M Easter Cookies
Best Way To Store M&M Easter Cookies Leftover
Before storing cookies, make sure they are cool. Keep them at room temperature, and store them in an airtight container, such as a resealable freezer bag, to keep them fresh and soft.
And here's a clever tip: stuff a piece of bread into the bag. This bread method may appear to work because the cookies tend to absorb moisture from the bread to keep it soft and fresh the entire time.
How Long Will Sweet and Crunchy White Chocolate M&M Easter Cookies Last In the Fridge?
Cookies can be kept at room temperature for two to three weeks or in the refrigerator for two months. When cookies are frozen, they keep their quality for eight to twelve months.
Can I Freeze M&M Easter Cookies
Cookies can be frozen for up to 3 or 4 weeks after baking. Allow cookies to cool completely after baking.
Freeze them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then put them in a freezer-safe zip-top storage bag with the name and date written on it, for reference purposes.
Easter Sugar Cookies FAQs
Are sugar cookies the same as chocolate-chip cookies?
No. Sugar cookies have a higher flour content than chocolate-speckled cookies. White sugar is also used in sugar cookies, whereas both brown and white sugar is used in chocolate chip cookies.
The type of sugar added to the dough will determine how chewie the cookie will be, and brown sugar tends to give a chewier texture.
Can I add more flour to the cookie dough?
Yes. Adding more flour to your thin cookie dough is the greatest approach to give it more solidity. The flour will aid in the reduction of moisture in the dough, resulting in a wonderfully textured batter.
Can I add different flavorings in the sugar cookie dough?
Yes. If you are making your own sugar cookie dough, instead of vanilla, try almond, peppermint, or citrus extracts for a unique flavor. For flecks of beautiful color and a nice pop of flavor, finely grated fresh citrus zest can be added.
Is cookie a dessert?
Yes. Desserts include biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts, and fruit salads, among others.
Can I make a healthier cookie?
Yes. Oatmeal cookies are slightly healthier than sugar cookies. Oatmeal cookies are lower in fat, higher in protein, fiber, and calcium than other cookies.
