Make It Monday! M&M Cookies!

Ok so I'm late with Make it Monday again... I've started to workout on Monday nights lately and I have been forgetting to post in the morning to avoid forgetting completely. However in my defence, I have to go to the gym more as all I have been making for Make it Monday has been COOKIES!!!

Now I love a good cookie, but I love, love, love M&M's... so why not put them together right... well there is that but also I get sucked into all the after holiday sales and I buy the ridiculously cheap bags of candy and chocolate... so this recipe uses up both Easter M&M's as well as a small solid Easter bunny.

I always buy that cheap chocolate and think this will be great for baking (because that was what my mom always said) but I tend to just chop it up and use it in chocolate chunk cookies. Oh well... at least they taste good!
M&M Cookies!

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of margarine (softened)
1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour 
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup M&M's
Small Easter bunny chopped into chunks or 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar, add egg and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt, once combined add M&M's and chocolate. Bake on a prepared baking sheet at 350 for 8 minutes. 

These are a cakeyer cookie then I usually like but they are super yummy!

I also tried out this tip from the Fooducate blog!

Have you seen this tip floating around pinterest? Putting cookie dough into an ice cube tray and freezing it for later use! SO HELPFUL! I can now have a half dozen of these cookies or even just one or two of them for the kiddos lunch at anytime! 

How do you use up candy and chocolate from the holidays? Do you buy extra like me and what do you do with your extras? Let me know so I can use mine up... Haha
