Whenever my kids’ classes have sign-ups to bring in food for a party, I am eager to sign up early so I can snatch a dessert spot. This year for their class Halloween parties, I was able to snag the cookie sign-up spot for both of my kids’ classes. Such a win. I made cute Halloween decorated cookies using my favorite Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing recipe, but I wanted to do something with a little chocolate as well.

Oreos and M&Ms

Kids, or at least my kids, like Oreo cookies and like M&Ms. So, it made sense to incorporate them into a cookie. My usual go-to move with cookies is to brown the butter and make then make them as soft as possible. But, I wanted to spice things up a little bit this time. I decided to make these cookies a bit on the chewy side. No one is ever sad about a brown sugar chewy cookie.

Chewy Oreo and M&M Cookies

I didn’t want the cookies to be too chewy, so I increased the brown sugar but left in some regular white sugar as well. If you want a super chewy cookie, you can substitute in more brown sugar than white, but the ratio listed below is what I find ideal for this recipe.

I crushed the Oreos fairly finely and used mini M&Ms. This way, the add-ins don’t overpower any of the bites, and it’s easy for tiny mouths to chew them. I also made the cookies on the small side since a) you can eat more, which is just a good thing, b) my 1 and 3 year old only need so much chocolate per day, and c) the add-ins make it a pretty rich cookie.

These Chewy Oreo and M&M Cookies are easy to make and are a delicious, fun treat for kids and adults alike!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Cookies
Keyword: Chewy Oreo M&M Cookies
Servings: 60 small cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup crushed Oreos
  • 3/4 cup mini M&Ms plus more for tops if desired
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a large bowl, use electric mixer on medium-high speed to beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until lightened, about 3 minutes.
  3. On low speed, beat in egg and egg yolks one at a time, scraping sides as needed. Then, beat in vanilla extract.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. On medium speed, beat in flour mixture 1/2 cup at at time, until well combined. Stir in oreos and M&Ms.
  5. Scoop dough in 1/2 tbsp sized balls on prepared sheets, about 2 inches apart. If you want the tops of the cookies to have visible M&Ms, press a few mini M&Ms on the top of each dough ball. Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until tops are golden.

  6. Let cool on sheet for a few minutes before removing to cooling rack.
