Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

These are not peanut butter cookies with m&ms. These are pudding cookies with peanut butter m&ms. Peanut butter m&ms are one of my favorite candies in the whole world. They are a perfect mix of chocolate and peanut butter, with that crispy hard shell. Delicious.


And m&m cookies are perfection too. I seriously love seeing those bright colors throughout the cookie. So much better than a plain chocolate chip cookie, am I right? Well peanut butter m&ms just take them to the next level, giving these already perfect cookies even more perfection.



Little bits of peanut butter and chocolate and crispy shell in the middle of a delicious vanilla-ey perfectly soft cookie.


Have I convinced you how perfect these cookies are yet? Seriously my new favorite! This recipe is inspired by Picky Palate.

  1. Can I use instant pudding?

    1. That’s exactly what I use. Don’t prepare the pudding, just use the dry mix!
