Good flavor, but turned out to crunchy for my liking. Maybe it is the high altitude we live in, but each batch I reduced the cooking time trying to keep these cookies soft and it just didn't happen. If you love crunchy cookies though, you might like these though.

Everyone should have a "fun" cookie in their recipe box. For me, this one is it. It tastes great and is simple to put together. No special ingredients, often already on hand in your pantry. Since I like smaller cookies, I use my 2" scoop to drop the dough. It's faster and easier, plus makes more cookies! I do think the original colored M

I was expecting more do to the positive reviews. The cookies came out fine but there was not a lot of flavor. I bake a lot of cookies and these are not as good I usually make.

Having a cookie exchange party tomorrow, so last night I halved the recipe and they came out great. No cookies ran, and they all looked and tasted great.Tonight I decided to make 1 & 1/2 times the recipe to make enough for every one to take home and sample. I Also decided to use 1/2 M & Ms and 1/2 chocolate chips. The first 4 trays came out good. The next 3 trays ran. I put the dough in the frig while waiting but they still ran. Not sure why. Still, in general I was pleased. Next time might just make it in small batches.

Great cookies! Easy to make and delicious! I buy M&Ms on clearance after Easter and after Christmas and freeze them to use all year long in these cookies and in monster cookies. Everyone loves the combination of ingredients in these cookies. I usually just make them with my black handled cookie scoop from King Arthur Flour. Can't remember the size, but I'd say probably 3 Tablespoon size. I have made them in the 1/4 cup scoop size and they are great that way, too! But, I've had some complaints from customers that my cookies are too big and they just want half of one--can you imagine! LOL!

Hi Marissa,You could use rice cereal instead. That would make a nice addition.
