Chip Chip Hooray!

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.

Chocolate Chip Confetti Cookie Dough

And stir in the chocolate.

Dough it!


Scoop them and bake them right up.

Or coat the tops in confetti sprinkles for a little more fun.

It’s like a party in every bite.

Chocolate Chip Confetti Cookies

Servings: 2 dozen cookies


  • 2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups M&M's
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate wafers – or morsels : )
  • Confetti sprinkles
  • Sea salt


  1. Sift together flour, soda and salt with a wire whisk and set aside.
  2. In a mixer, cream butter and sugars together for about two minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  4. On low, add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  5. Stir in chopped pecans, M&M's and chocolate wafers.
  6. Chill dough for about 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Scoop chilled dough with a 2-inch scoop. Gently press tops in a small dish of confetti sprinkles and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Note: If using regular M&M's you can top with primary color confetti sprinkles to match.
  9. Sprinkle tops with sea salt if desired.
  10. Bake for about 16 minutes or until lightly brown. If using a smaller scoop, then bake for about 12-14 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool and repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  11. Enjoy warm with a big glass of milk.

Hi. I love your blog. It’s just wonderful. Having kids (4) I don’t have much time to myself, but when I do find the time, I go to two blogs. I go to yours and John Contratt’s Cooking With Mr. C. Between the two of you, I get wonderful ideas to keep the kids (and the hubby) happy. Thanks so much.

I made these twice already but I wanted to ask what can I used to substitute the sugar in this recipe?

Or how can I make it healthier but still with the same great flavor?

Thank you.

I love to add color to anything I bake. I guess I think that the color should reflect how it is going to taste
