  • 1 cup butter softened (2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 12 oz mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package holiday M&Ms or Peanut Butter M&Ms divided *I used Peanut Butter M&Ms for this recipe*


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease a 12” cast iron skillet with butter.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with a fork (or you can use a hand mixer).
  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  • Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and half of the holiday M&Ms (save the rest to top the cookie after baking).
  • Press the cookie dough into the prepared skillet and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top the cookie with the rest of the M&Ms (press them into the cookie if needed).
  • Bake the cookie for another 5-8 minutes or until the center is set (the edges will be slightly brown, but you don’t want the center to get too hard or the cookie will burn).
  • Remove the cookie from the oven and let the cookie cool in the skillet for 30 - 45 minutes to set the center completely or serve immediately with ice cream for a gooey treat.
