M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! 

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies - soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! I make these over and over!

I’m just not a cookie person.

I would choose cake, a slice of pie, a handful of gummy bears, pretty much any other sweet over a cookie.

The exception to that rule is the one or 2 times a year when the only thing I can think about is grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies.

You know the ones, right?

They’re super soft and somehow every grocery store in the country makes them exactly the same way?

Yeah, those.

When I get a random craving for one of them, nothing fixes it but getting those cookies.

I can remember leaving my house in a snowstorm in Colorado because I needed these cookies to survive the day.

Fritos and grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies are the only things that I was ever willing to leave my house for during a snowstorm.

Y’all remember those days? When I was too scared to drive in the snow so we would walk to school every day? Granted, it was a short walk but still. I was terrified to drive in the snow for the first several years we were there.

Gluten Free Iced Orange Cookies - the perfect gluten free holiday cookie recipe! Tender cookies with orange zest and topped with a delicious sweet orange glaze.

We had parent teacher conferences last month and during one of them my blog came up and we started talking about how I do a lot of paleo stuff and the teacher mentioned that she and her husband are gluten free so when her students bring in homemade treats for her, she typically has to pass them on to other teachers.

And I don’t know if I’ve told you guys but I love all my kids’ teachers this year. I love them.

So obviously gluten free treats needed to be made for her.

Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies - the perfect sweet and salty cookie! Bacon is quickly candied in the oven and then added to the best chocolate chip cookies recipe!

This post originally published on September 30, 2011 and was updated October 23, 2017. It’s one of my oldest and favorite recipes. 

The first time I ever made these Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies – over 6 years ago – was the first time I realized what a food blogger weirdo I was.

Food bloggers love bacon. Okay, yeah, everyone loves bacon but food bloggers love to put bacon in places where bacon usually doesn’t belong. Cookies, ice cream, rice krispies treats, pretty much everything.

I mean, I have a bacon egg and cheese sandwich on a glazed doughnut pretty much every Saturday morning of my life.

And you can think that’s weird but I have made everyone in my life try them and no one’s complained yet.

S’mores Monster Cookies – addictive peanut butter cookies loaded with oats, Rice Krispies, pecans, milk chocolate, and marshmallows! 

Happy National S’mores Day!

How are you celebrating?! Can I suggest my favorite Raspberry White Chocolate S’mores?

When it comes to cookies, I either like a plain, boring shortbread or something loaded with everything you have in the kitchen. No in between with me.

So for these S’mores Monster Cookies, I started with a peanut butter base and then added oats, Rice Krispies, pecans, chopped Hershey’s bars, and tiny marshmallows.

They’re delicious and everything I want in a cookie.

Mississippi Mud Cookies – the perfect cookie for chocolate lovers! A chocolate cookie with pecans, chocolate chips, and marshmallows!

Hey guys, happy Friday! I made cookies!

I mentioned earlier that I was back in my s’mores obsession which means my kitchen is full of every size marshmallow, 15 different kinds of chocolate, etc, etc, etc.

So when I needed cookies at 2 am after a particularly rough day recently, I made these Mississippi Mud Cookies. Because chocolate and marshmallows. And also pecans.

Everything I love.

They’re also super easy and you should totally make them sometime this weekend.
