Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons salted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup Valentine's mix M&Ms

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Add the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until well combined.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  • Dump in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. Dough will be soft.
  • Stir in the candy and white chocolate chips.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to scoop out 12 balls of dough.

Notes

This dough doesn't tend to double well. If you need more than a dozen cookies, I recommend making separate batches. 
This recipe requires real butter - do not use margarine.
