Last year, when the pumpkin spice M&M’s hit the pages of the Target ad…I was a little unsure. While I do love pumpkin donuts and pumpkin pie, and the occasional Pumpkin Spice Latte, I had mixed feelings about my beloved M&M’s going along with the pumpkin everything trend.
And after trying them last year, I was quite disappointed. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but the flavor of them was kind of blah. I would definitely be sticking to my trusty peanut M&M’s for a sweet treat.
So this year, when the pumpkin spice M&M’s hit the shelves again, I decided to give them a try once more. But this time as a baking ingredient in chocolate chip cookies!
Although I’m sure they would be even more delicious using a homemade chocolate chip cookie recipe, I didn’t have the time nor patience to make chocolate chip cookies from scratch, so I grabbed one of those premix bags in the baking aisle.
The recipe is quite simple.
Mix the cookie dough according to the directions
Mix in 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin spice M&M’s
Bake cookies at time and temp indicated on the cookie mix
And that’s it! The M&M’s give the cookies just a hint of spice that pairs really well with the chocolate chips. Let’s just say, these cookies didn’t last very long in our house!
