OMG! These OMG! Soft-Batch Mini M&M & Chocolate Chip Cookies could be the perfect ending (or start!) of each and every day, from this point forward, if it was up to my, what do you call it? The “Better half”?
Yup, that would be my SO =“insignificant other”, “the mister”, “the old balls and chain”, “my plus one”, “my boo”, “The object of my affection”, ‘The Bae”, “My soul-mate”…shall I go on?
My baby has been begging me, no…wait!
‘Whining‘ is the appropriate verbiage, for months, for me to make him some M&M Cookies.
“Oh, and MAKE SURE you use the mini-M&M Chocolate Candies and the mini chocolate chips, nothing else.” — he says.
“NO other add-ins! That’s it!” — he says.
“Ok, command and you shall receive, my love.” — I said.
Ok, in reality, it was about 2 months later when I finally got to it for these. 😉
Sometimes, my ‘better half’ can sometimes drive me insane about his obsessing about his cookies and he doesn’t let it go until he gets them, and then he’s as sweet as can be.
He loves these Perfect Thin & Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies too!
Verdict? They were good. Like really, really good.
Like soft, fluffy, bakery style, really, really good with random mini chocolate chips and mini M&M’s in every bite. Just like that!!
I know you’ll want to make these OMG! Soft-Batch Mini M&M & Chocolate Chip Cookies for your “better half”, because, after-all, they are, just that. Maybe, you’ll even get a nice dinner out of it! *Still waiting…*
