One dough – three cookies

I have such a weak spot for big, gooey cookies. This probably doesn’t come as a surprise, seeing as my cookie tag contains 23 posts – a really big share of them being gooey chocolate chip cookies. There’s just something so comforting about biting into a big, soft chocolatey cookie. Now I’ve made M&M cookies before – an adaptation from my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe that uses brown butter, yum! – but when I saw this post down at the Pinch Of Yum blog I knew I had to try that recipe as well.

While I was making these cookies it soon became clear that I didn’t have enough M&Ms to make sure the dough had enough pieces of yumminess in it. I decided to go through my cupboards and see what else I could put in these cookies. It was all quite adventurous! I ended up going for, aside from one batch with M&Ms, a batch with Reese’s mini peanut butter cups (white and milk chocolate) and a batch with chopped up Geisha chocolate. These cookies suddenly got very international. I’d bought the M&Ms in Sweden, because the package was so cute, and I really like their logo and M&M mascots. The Geisha chocolate was a gift from a friend that she got in Finland. The Reese’s peanut butter cups I’d bought in the UK a while back.

All three kinds were extremely good, and I packed up a lot of them to take with me on my weekend trip to go see a friend who had her birthday the previous day. It was the perfect travel snack during my train ride, where I saw the landscape woosh by while I snacked on chocolate.

M&M cookies

July 1, 2012

It seems like these cookies have really taken over my life… It doesn’t help that one of my friends is a pretty big fan of them as well and keeps pestering me to make more. A couple of days ago said friend brought two packets of M&M over to my house, after a couple of them he decided he wasn’t in the mood for them after all. They were too boring, just like that. So I said: “Want me to turn them into cookies?” “Yes.” He replied. “Yes, please.”

And so I did, and damn. Amazing stuff happened. It’s neat that the M&Ms don’t really melt when you bake them, making the cookies really colorful :) Less fun is the fact that there were almost no red M&Ms in the packs. My rainbow of colors was a little crooked.
