16Tablespoons Unsalted Butter- 230 grams
3/4CupLight Brown Sugar(Packed Cup) - 161 grams
3/4CupWhite Granulated Sugar- 150 grams
1TeaspoonVanilla Extract- 5 milliliters
2 1/4CupsAll-Purpose Flour- 270 grams
1TeaspoonBaking Soda- 5 milliliters
1TeaspoonSalt- 5 milliliters (optional – use only 1/2 teaspoon if you are trying to reduce the sodium in your diet)
1CupSemi-Sweet Chocolate Chips- 170 grams
1CupMilk Chocolate M&Ms- 170 grams
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Soften butter in the microwave.
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, baking soda and salt. 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. However, don't overmix. Only mix for 1-2 minutes with an electric mixer. Also read the tips section on how to avoid "spreading"/overly thin cookies.
Add the chocolate chips to the cookie dough and mix in completely. For this step, you should use a large spoon (and not an electric mixer) for the mixing in order to avoid damaging the chocolate chips. FYI - Do not add the M&Ms at this point. They are added later to the top of the cookie dough "patties".
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.
