These cookies are major. Chocolate chunks, peanut butter M&M’s, and creamy peanut butter all wrapped up in a mega, palm-sized cookie. A happy and colorful cookie celebration.
I’ve been obsessed with these peanut butter M&M’s since March when I first found them on shelves in the shape of eggs for Easter. I’m not a big peanut M&M’s fan, but these… I can eat these for days. I almost wish they would stop making them so I would quit buying them. But in case they ever do, find some now and make these cookies.
And go for the chocolate chunks to mix in with them since these cookies are so big. You know, so you get a balanced bite.
Mix some of the candies in the batter, but be sure to save some to press into the tops so they’ll be super colorful when baked.
I used a big 2 1/2 inch ice cream scoop for these, but you can always make more/smaller cookies.
The recipe below makes 12 jumbo cookies.
They’re big and thick and beautiful.
Peanut Butter M&M's Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Enjoy a great big bite!
Can you bake the dough in a pan and make into bars? Would you adjust the baking temp.? And how long do you think you think they would bake for?
I just about drooled for this
These are amazing!!! I scooped them a bit smaller. than yours. My whole family loved them! I scooped and froze the rest of the dough, so I can take a couple out whenever the mood strikes. :) I will definitely make them again!
YAY! I’m so happy you enjoyed them and your family, too!
I just love your AMAZING blog!!! All your recipes are so pretty and delicious!!! My kids going to love this dessert. Thanks for sharing:)

I’m also a huge fan of the peanut butter M&M’s! They’re so good!
A happy and colorful..and FUN cookie for sure!! I’m pretty sure these will be a big hit with my kiddos! I agree with you on the peanut butter M&Ms, hope they keep these around forever. :)
They are dangerous to have around me.
Well, these tick all my cravings boxes!
Omg I need these :D
The cookies look so good but I am allergic to peanut butter. Would it make a difference if I omit the peanut butter from the recipe?
You would need to omit the peanut butter and add 1/2 cup butter back. And switch out the m&m’s for regular ones.
Hi Bakerella, are these cookies more on the chewy or on the crispy side?
they are more chewy
They look delicious !!
You mean you’ve never seen/tried peanut butter M&Ms before March??
Nope. I had not noticed them. I don’t really like peanut m&m’s. But these are now my faves.
This is looking an awesome recipe, I must try it in coming days.
These cookies look amazing! I need to make them tonight for our church pot luck tomorrow afternoon!
I need these now!!!!
Yum!!! This looks so delicious!
I love the idea of the peanut butter M & Ms and a cookie. These look out of this world good!!!
I can personally attest that you cannot get this whole cookie in your mouth. This is one of my favorite cookies and it was delish.
