M&M Cookies are an important part of my families holiday cookie baking.  One batch usually gets made the week of Thanksgiving.  Then another one always has to get made closer to Christmas.  It is one of our favorites and needs to be on the cookie tray every year.  This year though, I decided to mess with tradition and make these Double Chocolate M&M Cookies.  I baked them the day my parents got here for Thanksgiving, because I knew my dad would be asking for cookies if they weren’t already made.  To say he liked them would be an understatement. I had to make a second batch before they left.  We now have some in the freezer for when Christmas arrives!

Want to know the secret to making these super soft and chewy cookies?  Pudding.  Yep, putting a box of instant pudding mix in with the batter makes them so soft, you might never go back.  I knew my mom would be a fan, but even my dad was a fan of the double chocolate.  He is kind of a purist, but he liked the white chocolate chips in there too.  I am pretty sure when my mom gets back home she will be making these Double Chocolate M&M Cookies as part of their Christmas in Wisconsin this year.
