I love holiday candies. One of the best is Peppermint M&M’s… they are so good! They are red and white and make anything festive for Christmas (and Valentine’s Day if you can find them then!!!!). They are great in cookies, and in this epically awesome Peppermint M&M Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.
It’s perfect for cookie exchanges, for teachers gifts, neighbor gifts and Christmas parties!
The red and white M&M’s give them fun colors, too! Like extra fancy chocolate chip cookies. You won’t be able to put them down!
