We love a chocolate chip cookie any time of year, including during the holidays. But since Christmas is a special time, we wanted to create a chocolate chipper fit for the season, and that’s how this sweet-and-salty, chewy-and-gooey cookie came about! It’s chock-full of holiday M&M’s® candies, mini marshmallows, pretzels, cocktail peanuts, holiday sprinkles—everything but the kitchen sink! And if you find this cookie is too good to stop making after Christmas is over, there’s no saying you can’t switch out the holiday colors in these cookies!

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix

  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cocktail peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons green, red and white candy sprinkles

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cookie scoops make quick work of dropping cookie dough and help ensure a better end result. This is because they help keep cookie size uniform, so they all bake in the same amount of time!
  • tip 2
    For best results, bake one sheet of cookies at a time on the middle oven rack.
  • tip 3
    Mini marshmallows can give cookies an irregular shape, but with that shape comes delicious gooey texture! Just remember to use parchment paper, so cleanup is a snap.
