Why I Love This Recipe?
- It’s easy to make and make in a half-hour or less.
- This recipe is great for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holidays.
- The cookies turn out soft and moist while still having the brown sugar taste that’s so popular with M&M cookies these days.

How To Make M&M sugar Cookie Recipe?
- One jar (7 oz) Marshmallow Creme
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- Two eggs, beaten (about two large)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Mixer (optional)
- Large Mixing Bowls
- Cookie Sheet
- Parchment Paper or Liners for Baking
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper or liners. In a large mixing bowl, beat the 1/4 cup canola oil, Marshmallow Creme, cocoa powder, and brown sugar on medium speed until smooth. Then add eggs and vanilla extract, and continue mixing until smooth.
In another large mixing bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Gradually add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Mix on low speed until combined (don’t over-mix). Stir in chocolate chips. Gently fold in the mix by hand. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface, using your cookie sheets to guide you if necessary. Cut into shapes using small cookie cutters or knives, then place on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart or on parchment paper or lined pans.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (depending on how large the cookies are) or until the edges are lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on racks.
They will keep in an airtight container for a week or so at room temperature, but they won’t stay fresh that long as they seem to deteriorate after a few days unless they’re frozen. If you want to try freezing these chocolate and marshmallow M&M Cookies, please let me know how it goes.

07 Amazing Health Benefits Of M&M sugar Cookie Recipe
1. Protects Heart From Atherosclerosis
According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, cocoa is high in flavonoids, potent antioxidants. A study presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in 2013 has shown that antioxidants and flavonoids may reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) by 30 percent.
2. Helps You Lose Weight
Research published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that M&Ms could quickly help you lose excess weight. The researchers found that young obese women who ate a small package of M&Ms at bedtime took in enough calories to compensate for those burnt in a whole day.
3. Rich In Magnesium
Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common health problems today. This mineral is essential to over 300 processes in our body. M&M’s have very high amounts of Magnesium, which also aids muscle development in men and women. (3)
4. Improves digestion
A study at the University of Vermont College of Medicine reported that women who ate M&Ms (cocoa and the salt-free variety) after meals had a higher rate of fullness than those who didn’t. Many people avoid eating candy because they are concerned about sugar and calories, but it is possible to include these treats in your diet without giving in to cravings.
5. Improves Brain Function
A study published in the Journal of Nutrition showed that M&M consumption improved memory and attention in the elderly. Researchers found that those who ate M&Ms had more excellent brain function than those who did not.
6. Helps You Burn Fat
M&M’s are one of the best soluble fiber sources, which helps promote healthy digestion, lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by fighting obesity.
7. Rich In Phosphorus
M&M’s are one of the best sources of natural phosphorus. Phosphorus is essential for our body and plays a vital role in our muscles, bones, nerves, and DNA functioning. It is necessary for athletes, pregnant women, and children under the age of 3.
Can you bake with regular M&Ms?
Yes, but getting the brown sugar flavor you need is impossible. You can use regular M&Ms, but they won’t brown as well as those with cocoa and salt.
Why are my M&M cookies flat?
It happens if you don’t have enough egg whites in the batter. The small amount of air leavening from the egg whites to give it lift is not enough. To avoid this problem, use one whole egg instead of two yolks and whip the whites with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes until they form stiff peaks.
What makes a cookie soft and chewy or crispy?
Several things affect the texture of a cookie when it’s baked—the amount of leavening, whether baking powder or baking soda, is essential. Using more leavening will result in a softer, fluffier cookie. Leaving raw cookie dough to rest overnight or using chilled butter or margarine can also result in chewier cookies.
What does cornstarch do in cookies?
In addition to giving the cookies a crisp shell, cornstarch is also an excellent thickener. Cornstarch makes the dough for these cookies easy to stir, then sets up as the cookies bake. It results in chewy bars with a crispy, crackly bottom.
Why are my sugar cookies spreading?
If your cookies are spreading, it might be because there is too much butter in the recipe. It can make the cookies greasy and difficult to handle. Adding a little extra flour may help absorb some of the butter, but if you want more even results, try using margarine instead of butter.
