Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: red, white, and blue cookies
Servings: 12 cookies


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup butter unsalted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&Ms red, white, and blue


  • Preheat the oven to 375 line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat baking sheet.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, mix well and set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, using the paddle attachment, combine butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Cream together until well incorporated.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla and continue mixing until well mixed.
  • Gradually add in dry ingredients mixing thoroughly between each addition.
  • After the dry ingredients are all incorporated add in the chocolate chips and M&M’s gently mix on low until they are well distributed through the dough. I like to use the dough hook for this step but you can use the paddle attachment.
  • Scoop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. To make these cookies nice and big scoop 2 Tbsp at a time. I like to use an ice cream scoop. If desired press additional M&M’s into the dough scoops to decorate the cookies.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes and then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.
