  • Put chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Fold in M&Ms

  • Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies are flat and surfaces crack, about 15 minutes (cookies should be soft). Let cool on parchment on wire racks. Cookies can be stored between layers of parchment in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days.

How many cookies does this recipe make? I am sure this is regular, granulated sugar. When it is anything else a recipe will specify (confectioers, etc.). Hershey makes an unsweetend cocoa you can find in the baking department of virtually any grocery store.

I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out hard as rocks. They looked nice, but I will decrease the baking time next time I make these. They looked practically unbaked when they came out after 15 mins., but disappointingly they hardened up A LOT.

These cookies turned out perfectly! I undercooked them by a few minutes, and did not use my Convection oven - just regular baking oven. The convection oven cooks quickly and will make the cookies harder. I prefer them gooey and fudgy. I've also used 3 types of chocolate chips - milk, semi-sweet and dark. Great cookie for chocoholics!

I like using semi chocolate chips, not milk ones. Has anyone tried it with the dark chocolate chips, and if so, how did the cookies turn out?

OMG! These are AWESOME! I have been searching for years for the perfect chocolate cookie. I can never find one chocolately enough. These are perfect. The texture is right, crispy on the outside-gooey chocolatey on the inside. I used a tablespoon and the cookies came out huge. They look like they belong in a bakery window!
