Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

My father loves chocolate cookies. A soft chocolate cookie is good, but a chewy chocolate cookies recipe is so much better! Why?

Because of the milk! Chewy chocolate cookies are better to dunk in a tall glass of cold milk! Milk and cookies are the best!

So how did the M&M’s come to be in this chocolate cookie recipe? I wanted something festive but also fun in a cookie recipe.

Sure red and green chocolate chips would work but Chocolate M&M cookies sound so much more fun! The multicolored M&Ms look like Christmas lights in these chocolate cookies.
