Sassy Sweets: Gluten-Free Chocolate M&M Cookies

Print Friendly and PDF
Sister K is now gluten-free and dairy-free which to be honest, puts a bit of a cramp in my dessert style.  It's easy to find things that are gluten-free or dairy-free but both?  Some might consider it a nightmare scenario but I enjoy the challenge of finding recipes that Sister K and everyone else can enjoy.  Take these cookies for example.

They are so deep, dark, chocolatey chocolate that you can't stop eating them.  Well maybe you could.  I can't.  Neither can John.  Which means if I make these for "Sister K" I have to make a double batch...so some actually get to her.  You know what I mean, right?

I love the addition of the M&Ms.  They make the cookies look so colorful and delicious, just like Sister K.
Gluten-Free Chocolate M&M Cookies
Serves:  12 (36 cookies)
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups cocoa powder
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup M&Ms

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat together the butter and sugars in a large bowl until the mixture is fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla.  Mix until well-combined.  Add the baking soda and cocoa powder, mixing until just combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips and M&Ms.  Drop tablespoons of cookie mixture onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 6-8 minutes, until the edges just look dry.  Let cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing.  Let the cookies cool to room temperature and store them in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
