Chocolate Chip Confetti Cookies

Chocolate Chip Confetti Cookies!

Get in my mouth. Right now. It’s cookie time!

Confetti Cookie Ingredients

Okay, anytime is cookie time in my book. How about you?

I made these chocolate chip cookies using a few extras that I had on my counter.

Chopped Pecans

Leftover pecans from last weekend’s Hummingbird Cake that I chopped up.

Pastel M&M's

Pastel M&M’s leftover from Easter. These were hiding under a pile of different color candy melts I had on the counter or else they would have already been gone by now.

Chocolate Wafers

E. Guittard semi-sweet chocolate wafers. I still had a box from the last time I made Jacques Torres’ Chocolate Chip Cookies. And now I don’t think I can make chocolate chip cookies with little baby morsels ever again. Okay, that’s not true. But seriously, try making chocolate chip cookies with these chocolate baking discs sometime. Holy yum. I picked mine up at Williams-Sonoma.

Cookie Dough

Mix up the dough and add in the pecans. That is if you want. You can also leave them out.

Mixing Dough

Add in some M&M’s. Any color combo you like.
