Beautiful dark chocolate cookies made with Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder, packed full of chocolate chips and topped with colorful Dark Chocolate M&M’s. These Dark Chocolate M&M Christmas Cookies are perfect for Christmas!
These cookies are my absolute favorite cookies along with my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies. Can you really get better than a soft, chewy chocolately cookie filled with chocolate chips and topped with pretty M&M’s? I don’t think so! My boys thought these cookies were pretty awesome too and enjoyed eating it with me!
I just got a cookie scoop (2 Tbsp.) and used it for the first time when I made these cookies. I loved it and it made preparing the cookie dough so much faster! Rolling the dough into balls is my least favorite part of making cookies.
This dough comes together pretty quickly. Once you scoop the dough into balls, top it with M&M’s and chill it (fridge or freezer) then bake. I made these the night before I needed them and kept it in the fridge overnight and it was just great the next day!
And you want to know the best part?
The ooey gooey beyond delicious melty chocolate chips inside! Plus the crunch of the M&M’s on top, the chewy, soft cookies. Oh my goodness you guys you need to make these right now! And if you dare to share instead of keeping all this yumminess to yourself this would be a perfect cookie for neighbor treats or a Christmas party! Also, obviously if you aren’t a fan of dark chocolate feel free to use regular cocoa powder.
