White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies

Think white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and replace the macadamia nuts with peppermint. Sound good? Well, that's exactly what these taste like! Of course, when I heard M&M was releasing White Chocolate Peppermint M&Ms exclusively through Target, I knew we'd have to make a trip to buy some. We hit the Christmas candy aisle pretty hard!


They come together really easily, so you can make them last minute before taking them over to a friend's for an impromptu dinner. These would be great for a holiday cookie exchange.


White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies

adapted slightly from Two Peas and Their Pod; makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup White Chocolate Peppermint M&Ms
  • 2 full size candy canes, crushed
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together into a medium sized bowl.
  3. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy using a hand mixer.
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue beating.
  5. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture until just combined.
  6. Fold in the white chocolate chips, M&Ms, and crushed candy canes.
  7. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet lined with a baking mat or parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are browned but the centers look slightly underdone.
  8. Allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before sneaking one (and moving the rest to a baking sheet)!
