Malted Milk M&M's® Crispy Cookies

These cookies feature both semi-sweet chocolate chips and the M&M’s® Crispy candy. They are simple to make and the recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen, which to me is the perfect cookie batch size.

  • 1 C Butter Flavor Shortening
  • 1 1/4 C Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C Malted Milk Powder
  • 2 T Chocolate Syrup
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 C Flour
  • 1 t Baking Soda
  • 1/2 t Salt
  • 1 1/2 C Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 C M&M's® Crispy - about 2 2.8 oz packages


  • In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the first 5 ingredients in order. Beat 2 minutes. Add the egg and beat well. In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Add this to the ingredients in the mixer.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix until just combine. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the M&M's® Crispy by hand.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet (or use a silicon liner or parchment paper). Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. DO NOT over bake. I recommend checking the cookies at 8 min for doneness. They will be lightly golden brown around the edges.
  • Cool on wire rack
