I just love M&Ms! Add them to cookies and what better treat can there be!

Anne said...

My favorite M&M color is the original green, followed by yellow and red. I always separate them by color and save my favorite colors for last.

boy do those cookies look good, but I have to abstain-too much sugary things cause my blood sugar to spike and I can't have that happening.

Happy December 1st. Thanks for all the comments. I love M&M cookies, too. I think I like the brown ones, maybe because they look 'chocolaty.'

Do they make any with macadamian nuts? Well, I suppose... any kind of nuts would be good, too!

I must be one of the few in the world that doesn't like M&Ms. I just don't like them...never have. I'm not a big fan of chocolate, but will eat somethings made with it....but not M&Ms. Fave color? the orange ones.
