Add all but 2 Tablespoons of the M&M’s to the cookie batter. Stir gently to incorporate.

Using a spoon, scoop round balls of dough out of the bowl and shape into about 10 cookies on the parchment paper. Use your fingers to gently press the tops and flatten them. Then add the remaining M&M’s to the surface of the raw cookies.

Bake cookies for 11 minutes. Then pull them out of the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Now they’re ready to enjoy!
