Step by step chocolate chip M & m cookies recipe.
The recipe is adaptation of double chocolate chip cookies. I made these for sons and their friends. The kids just loved it.
These are thick, dense cookies, chewy on outside and soft on inside. It taste just like what the name calls. A double chocolate sweet and slightly bitter treat. I usually bake these around evening when kids and hubby is home. And these hot cookies are irresistible treat. Go ahead make these, you won’t regret, I promise. Just be careful don’t over-cook these, rest of the recipe is simple.
Baking cookies can be overwhelming to many but actually it’s fun and there is so much to learn and experiment. A very little change in ingredient, proportion, temperature, shape, cooking time can alter the results. This makes baking cookies so interesting and fun. When I started baking cookies, my every batch would be different and then I would keep experimenting. That’s why I feel making cookies is addictive.
