Our most requested recipe to bring to get togethers, peanut butter chocolate chip m&m cookies ohsweetbasil.com

We aren’t really sugar cookie people at our house so when it’s time to bust out cookies we tend to go with chocolate chip, but my true love is peanut butter and chocolate. This old recipe is being brought back up to the frost so you all can make delicious peanut butter chocolate chip m&m cookies and I promise it will be the best cookie you have all week (unless you eat any of our other cookies too in which case those are also the bomb diggity)  But first, peanut butter chocolate chip m&m cookies.

I have tested this particular recipe half a gazillion times, and I truly believe this is the best peanut butter chocolate chip cookie around and it’s even better with m&ms. In these updated photos I used mini m&ms because I love that you get little nibbles of m&ms, but if you scroll down you’ll see the regular m&ms too.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that the more candy you add and the bigger they are the less cookie dough there is to create a yummy cookie.

Do Peanut Butter Cookies Need to Be Refrigerated?

Peanut butter cookies do not need to be kept in the refrigerator.

To prevent peanut butter cookies from becoming stale, cover them with plastic wrap or keep in an airtight container.

Can You Freeze Peanut Butter Cookie Dough?

To freeze, roll into a log, and  tightly wrap in plastic wrap, then into freezer bags.

Freeze for up to 3 months, then let it thaw in the refrigerator for an hour or two before rolling into balls or slicing and baking.

Or, you can roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet to freeze.

Once frozen, place in a freezer bag and store in the freezer until you are ready to bake them.

Can You Keep Chocolate Chips in the Freezer?

Semi Sweet Chocolate chips will maintain best quality for about 2 years in the freezer.

Milk chocolate chips will keep for 1 year.
