M&Ms Cookies Video Recipe – Joyofbaking.com

M&M’s® Cookies are so cool looking. I love how the candies are sitting right on top of each cookie rather than being buried in the dough like with a chocolate chip cookie. Kids especially like these giant cookies with their crisp edges and soft and chewy centers. The batter is actually a chocolate chip cookie batter, only we are replacing the chocolate chips with M&M’s® candies.

M&M’s® candies are small rounds of milk chocolate covered in a hard candy coating with an “M” printed in the center of each candy. They were the invention of Forrest Mars Sr. The story goes that Forrest Mars traveled to Spain during the Spanish Civil War and noticed that the soldiers were eating small rounds of milk chocolate that were covered with a hard sugar coating which prevented the chocolate from melting (aka Nestle Smarties® ). He decided to invent a similar type of candy with his partner, Bruce Murrie, who was the son of the president of Hershey chocolate company. The M&M’s® name was the product of combining the first letters of their last names (Mars and Murrie’s). M&M’s® started production in 1940 and were actually part of American soldier’s rations during the Second World War. By the late 1940s they were widely available to the public and were an instant hit. Fast forward to today and both M&M’s® and Nestle Smarties® are still going strong. If you have tasted both you know that although they may look similar, their texture and taste are different as they each use their own brand of milk chocolate and the candy coatings are also different. Both, though, have yellow, red, green, blue, and orange colored candies, but Smarties® also has pink and purple candies.
