Pastel M&M Cookies - before

Pastel M&M Cookies - after

Any chocolate chip cookie recipe that you favor is great for these small m&m chips. Just substitute the chocolate chips with m&m's. It is very rare that colors other than the brown/green/yellow/red are found - so when I spotted these at the candy store....I just bought 'em all (which was not alot).
