Don’t want to spend loads of money and time on making chocolate covered strawberries for Valentines Day this year? Well here is an excellent alternative! And there is no shortage of red, pink and white M&M’s on the shelves so grab a bag and have some fun with your kids whipping up a special treat!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 package Jello Strawberry Creme Instant Pudding Mix
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • Pink Food Coloring
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 Cup White Cheesecake M&M’s
  • 1/2 Cup Milk Chocolate M&M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a stand mixer beat the white and brown sugar with the butter until you have a grainy paste. Add the vanilla, food coloring and eggs, mix until combined.

Beat in the baking soda and salt. Mix in the pudding mix. Slowly add the flour. Mix well. Using a large mixing spoon mix in the M&Ms. If your dough is really soft place in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Using a cookie dough scoop get a heaping scoop of dough. Place on a large non stick cookie sheet. I did 3 cookies to a row and 5 rows.
Bake for 13-15 minutes until the edges just start to brown.

Cool on a wire rack.
