Soft chocolate cookies loaded with white chocolate chips and miniature M&M’s make these Ultimate Chocolate Cookies are hard to resist! #OXOGoodCookies
My daughter started Pre-K a couple of weeks ago and one afternoon as when we returned home she declared, “we should make cookies!” I don’t know about you but it doesn’t take a whole lot of convincing to get me to make cookies.
Especially chocolate cookies! True story… I have NO self control when it comes to chocolate cookies. Soft, chewy chocolate cookies are my all time favorite, throw in some white chocolate and candies and you’ll see me eating more than a few. These cookies are just so delicious I think I must have eaten about 5 the day we baked them. They were a big hit with my daughter and our friends, I had to share to keep myself from eating them all.

Did you know that for every stickered item sold, OXO will donate 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000 pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Be on the lookout for specially marked OXO baking products with this Cookies for Kids’ Cancer sticker sold at participating retailers. I am completely in love with the OXO Medium Cookie Scoop, it’s the perfect sized scoop for any cookie and works great for cupcakes or muffins! I also really love the OXO Cookie Spatula and how easily it makes the cookies just glide right off the baking sheet.
If you see this little green circle, then you know you’ve found the right ones:
