Calories: 178kcal


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks, softened)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup red, white, and blue m&ms
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3 TBS red, white, and blue sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Beat until it's light and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and stir till just combined.
  • Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir together till you have a nice soft dough.
  • (If the dough is too soft, add in more flour 1 TBS at a time)
  • Fold in the m&ms, white chocolate chips, and sprinkles.
  • Scoop the cookie dough into large 2 TBS sized cookie balls onto an baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until the sides are golden and the tops are just set.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let the cookies sit on the pan for 5 to 10 minutes, as they'll continue cooking.
  • Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely, or enjoy warm.
