3/4CupLight Brown Sugar(packed cup)
3/4CupWhite Granulated Sugar
2CupsFlour(all purpose flour)
3/4CupCocoa Powder Natural Unsweetened(not hot chocolate powder)
1TeaspoonSalt(optional - use only 1/2 teaspoon if you are trying to reduce the sodium in your diet)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Soften butter in the microwave.
Lightly beat eggs.
Mix eggs, butter, granulated white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to mix these ingredients together. Mix until creamy.
Then stir in the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Do not add the M&Ms at this time. Use an electric mixer to mix all of the ingredients together. Mix until ingredients are completely blended and cookie dough looks creamy. FYI - Read the tips section below to find out why using an electric mixer results in a much better cookie than mixing by hand.
Scoop dough with a tablespoon or cookie dough scoop and place this dough “ball” onto a nonstick baking sheet & press down to create a cookie "patty". You will need at least 2 baking sheets in order to bake all of the cookies at the same time (if they can fit in your oven) or you will need to bake each batch separately (one after the other).
Leave space of roughly 2-3 inches between each dough ball because the cookies will spread as they bake.
Gently press M&Ms into the tops of each cookie dough patty.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Remove baking tray from the oven. Wear oven mitts. Leave cookies on baking sheet to cool for 2-3 minutes. Otherwise, cookies might break when removed from the baking sheet.
Use a spatula to remove cookies and place cookies on wire cooling racks in order to cool completely.
