Easter M&M chocolate chip Cookies

Cookies and M&Ms are two of my favorite sweet treat indulgences. It’s hard for me to say no to a cookie and it’s hard for me to pass up a few M&Ms. One of my favorite types of cookie is a cookie with M&M’s in it. So I made these M&M Easter Cookies to enjoy during Easter!

I figured an Easter cookie was appropriate for today’s post. These are perfect for the kiddos from the Easter Bunny or to bring to Easter brunch, lunch or dinner!

Speaking of Easter eating…what are your plans? We will be on a train come back from Seattle hopefully we will make it to Grandma’s house and then heading back to our house for an early dinner so basically we will be eating all day and I can.not.even.wait. Holidays are a great excuse to indulge a little which I plan on doing…a lot.
