RED & GREEN M&Ms "Chocolate Chip" COOKIES

I love M&Ms in my chocolate chip cookies, so for the holidays why not use the Red & Green Holiday M&Ms? I always have several bags left over from our corporate Gingerbread House Building Competitions. Be sure to scroll down and check out the M&Ms holiday commercial!

RED & GREEN M&Ms "Chocolate Chip" COOKIES

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup sweet butter (room temperature)
2 eggs (room temperature)
1-1/2 teaspoons Madagascar vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1.2 teaspoon sea salt  (or regular if you don't have any!)
1-1/2 cups red & green holiday M&Ms

In large bowl, mix sugar, eggs, shortening, and vanilla thoroughly. Add flour, salt, and baking soda to creamed mixture. Blend well. Stir in 3/4 cup of M&Ms.
Drop dough by teaspoons onto cookie sheet.
Slightly push a few candies on top of each dough ball with remaining candies.
Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes.
