M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes its finals week and yes I am supposed to be studying, but I needed a break! I went to the gym on a break yesterday, and today I baked these M&M chocolate chip cookies, so hopefully the two will balance out 😉 This is a classic cookie recipe that I always baked with my mom growing up, and on Christmas Eve we would “leave some out for Santa”. For the holidays, try using the Christmas red & green M&Ms.
