Double Chocolate M&M "Kikis"

It's been super rainy here lately.
It seems that whenever it rains I want to bake.
It's a good and bad thing
Sweets in the house
can be very dangerous!

However, these cookies are
amazing.
They are chocolate-y and full of goodness.

Before I start you're probably wondering why I call them "Kikis"
That's all Oliver. He loves cookies - but whenever he asks for one
it comes out as Kiki.

So these my friends are Double Chocolate M&M Kikis




INGREDIENTS:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces semisweet or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped (I used chocolate chips)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into eight pieces
3/4 cup M&M’s
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. set aside.


In a microwave-safe bowl, place the chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) and the butter.

Microwave at 30 second intervals until the chocolate and butter have melted. Stir in between. Mine took one minute to completely melt.
Once melted. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until combined.

 Gradually mix in flour mixture on low speed.

Stir in the M&Ms with a spatula or spoon.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper,  Drop dough onto baking sheets spacing them about 1 1/2 inches apart.



Bake the cookies about 13-14 minutes. The cookies will still be soft. Let them sit for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet before removing them to a wire rack or parchment paper.


Once cool package them up and send them to work with your husband. Or take some to the neighbors. Hide them in the back of the freezer. They are so good you will want to eat them all.
