  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ tea baking soda
  • ½ tea kosher salt
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter mostly melted
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large yolk
  • 1 tea vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3 ounces chocolate chips
  • 1 ounce M&M's, plus more for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together the melty butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the egg yolk and continue to stir until the sugar begins to dissolve slightly and the mixture lightens in color. Add the vanilla and mix to combine.
  • Add the flour mixture and stir together with a rubber spatula until nearly combined. Add the milk and stir to combine.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and M&M's. Fold to combine.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to make heaping 3 tablespoon scoops of dough. Place four balls of dough on each sheet. There should be about 8 cookies.
  • Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes, rotating halfway and banging the bottoms of the pans once on the oven rack.
  • When done, the edges and bottoms should be browned and the centers not fully set.
