Peanut Butter M&M’s Cookies Recipe:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 box (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 cup Peanut Butter M&M’s
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and creamy peanut butter until well combined and smooth.
- Add the instant vanilla pudding mix, brown sugar, and granulated sugar to the bowl. Mix until the ingredients are creamy and well incorporated.
- Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Ensure that the mixture is light and fluffy.
- Sprinkle in a pinch of salt and add the baking soda to the bowl. Mix until the dry ingredients are evenly distributed.
- Gradually add the all-purpose flour to the wet ingredients, mixing until a cookie dough forms.
- Gently fold in the mini chocolate chips and Peanut Butter M&M’s until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
- Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough and roll them into balls. Place the cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving enough space between each for spreading.
- Press a couple of Peanut Butter M&M’s onto the top of each dough ball for a decorative touch.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Be cautious not to overbake to ensure a soft and chewy texture.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Enjoy these delicious Peanut Butter M&M’s cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite beverage!

Here are some helpful tips to enhance the Peanut Butter M&M’s Cookies recipe:
- Chill the Dough:
- Consider chilling the cookie dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before baking. Chilled dough often results in thicker cookies with a better texture.
- Use High-Quality Ingredients:
- Opt for high-quality peanut butter, chocolate chips, and Peanut Butter M&M’s for a richer flavor. Natural peanut butter without added sugar can also be used for a more intense peanut flavor.
