I love baking cookies! Yum! One of my favorites (that my mom always made!) are peanut butter cookies. :) We made those all the time growing up, and believe it or not I think I’ve improved the recipe! ha! ;) I added Peanut M&M’s to our favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, & it turned them into the ultimate peanut butter cookies. Yes, the ultimate! These would be a great class party recipe or even an office party recipe. I made them for my Cub Scouts this week, & they gobbled them up quick! So keep reading to get this yummy recipe, a coupon & see how to enter a fun M&M Pinterest contest. :)

Before I started baking I headed to Walmart to stock up on some baking supplies. I love baking with chocolate so I always stock up on Peanut M&M’s & Plain M&M’s. Milk Chocolate M&M’s are the best! I also have a thing for the candy corn M&M’s, too! Oh, how I miss those candy corn M&Ms. ha! ;)

In a large bowl beat the margarine (or butter) & peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium high for about 30 seconds or until the margarine & peanut butter are mixed together. Add about half the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder & vanilla. Beat until thoroughly combined. Then beat in the remaining flour. Pour in the Peanut M&M’s & stir.

  1. Peanut butter and chocolate are my favorite combination. I love m&ms in cookies too because they don't get quite as messy. These look delicious.
