  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or sea salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces MandM candies

How to make this recipe

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In a mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the peanut butter until combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Stir in the M&M’s, reserving a handful to decorate the top of the cookies. Cover and chill the dough for at least 1 hour.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a couple sheet pans with parchment paper. Form the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls using a 1-ounce cookie scoop and place on the lined sheet pan 2-inches apart. Lightly press the reserved M&M’s into the dough balls.

  4. Bake for 11-14 minutes or until the cookies are just set on the edges and lightly browned. Let them cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
