Expert Tips

  • For best results, do not use “natural style” peanut butter.
  • You can substitute the M&M's™ chocolate candies with chocolate chips, Reese’s™ Pieces™, Reese’s™ Minis, or go crazy and add up to 1/2 cup of any combination of the above.
  • Cookies are easily the sweet treat I crave the most. The cookie cravings come at all hours of the day (yes, even for breakfast!), and much of the time I give in. But too often, I tell myself I’m not up to the task of baking a whole batch and I move on. Or sometimes, I want just one cookie or two and don’t know what I’d do with the other two dozen. That’s the brilliance of this giant peanut butter and M&M's™ cookie! The recipe makes just one perfect cookie, soft in the middle and chewy around the edges. It’s completely from scratch and only requires a small bowl and spoon to prepare. This cookie is plenty big enough to share, but I wouldn’t blame you if you kept it all to yourself!
