I can’t believe that I have M&Ms at my disposal. It has been almost a year since the last time I made M&M cookies. In case you didn’t know, my family and I have been living in Chile for the past year and are now back in Idaho visiting relatives. It is a very surreal experience being back here. I look at everything in a different way than I used to now. Another thing you may not know is that everything is harder, if not impossible, to find in Chile. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating a little. It is just that if you can even find things like M&Ms in Chile, they are about 4 times the price. M&Ms are good but they are not that good. They are more of a luxury item to me now.
I’m cheating a little with this one because it is the same recipe I use for my chunky chocolate chip cookies with M&Ms instead of chocolate.
For my first recipe back in The States I wanted to make something elaborate with a bunch of ingredients that I truly appreciate now, but I got voted down. Everyone in my family simply wanted a batch of cookies with….(angel voices humming louder and louder)…brown sugar! Chocolate chips are also a luxury now so I made some with those too.
I know that to most people M&M cookies are a pretty generic. Those people need to take a moment to seriously appreciate M&Ms and try to imagine life without them.
