What’s more exciting than chocolate chip cookies?  Cookies made with M&Ms and cream cheese.  Yes, you read that right.  In this recipe, you add cream cheese with butter in the beginning.  You also get to use brown sugar.  This would be a fun recipe to do with the kids, because they taste as good as they look.


  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain M&Ms (vary to taste)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (vary to taste)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Lightly grease cookie sheet.
  • Cream your cream cheese, butter, and both sugars.
  • Add and mix your egg and vanilla.
  • Stir in your dry ingredients except for the chocolate.
  • Gently fold in M&Ms and chocolate chips.
  • Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours before placing on cookie sheet. (This will help the cookies not look melted and thin after baking.)
  • When ready scoop out dough onto prepared cookie sheet making sure to leave a space for the cookies to spread out.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes. (Be careful not to overbake as they will firm up when cooling. As soon as the edges have set, and the tops are beginning to set, remove from the oven.)
