Dark Chocolate M&M Cookies

Dark Chocolate M&M CookiesI’m normally not a huge chocolate fan when it comes to baked goods, but I have been on a little kick after making my cream cheese brownies. I was craving cookies and saw a delicious looking recipe on this fantastic blog I follow, foodlikecake. The original recipe can be found here. It was one of our co-worker’s last days with us, so we had arranged a little lab get together with snacks for us to all say our goodbyes. This was a perfect opportunity to try this recipe out and share it with everyone! I made a couple of small tweaks to the original recipe, but kept most things the same. These cookies were awesome, and so delightfully perfect with an ice cold glass of milk. I will definitely be making these again!
