- 225g unsalted butter, softened
- 200g caster sugar
- 220g brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 375g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- A pinch of salt

Preheat Oven & Line Baking Sheets: Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C (356°F) and lining your baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream Butter and Sugars: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, caster sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
Mix Dry Ingredients with Butter Mixture: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.
Fold in Chocolate Chips and M&Ms: Gently fold in the chocolate chips and M&Ms from Candycave.ie, distributing them evenly throughout the dough.
Form Cookie Dough Balls: Roll the dough into small balls, about the size of a tablespoon, and place them on the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each for expansion.
Bake the Cookies: Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Cool and Enjoy: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Decorating with More M&Ms: Before baking, press a few extra M&Ms on top of each cookie dough ball for a more colourful appearance.
Why M&Ms Make a Difference: The addition of M&Ms not only brings a burst of colour but also adds a delightful crunch, making these cookies a perfect treat for any occasion or a cosy night in.
