  • 10 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup Halloween colored M&Ms


  • In a large bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk until well combined.
  • Next, add the flour and baking soda and stir just until no large lumps of flour remain.
  • Add the M&Ms and mix just until they’re combined - you don’t want to overmix!
  • Cover the bowl and transfer the cookie dough to the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  • While the cookie dough chills, preheat your oven to 350°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
  • Once the dough has chilled, scoop two-tablespoon sized cookies onto the baking sheets, making sure they’re at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Allow them to cool fully before removing them from the tray - they will set as they cool.
  • Transfer the cooled cookies to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to three days.



  • Melt the butter. This makes the dough soft enough to stir by hand. It also helps to dissolve the sugar and create a chewy texture.
  • Press a few extra M&Ms on top of the cookies right before baking.
  • Let the cookies cool on the pan. This allows them to finish baking, and helps make the perfect shape and consistency.
