  • 1 cup of butter, softened
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 box of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • Mini chocolate chips (to taste)
  • Peanut butter M&Ms (to taste)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for easy cleanup.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and peanut butter until smooth and well combined. This forms the rich, flavorful base of your cookies.
  3. Add both sugars and the instant vanilla pudding mix to the creamy butter mixture. Continue to beat until the mixture becomes light and fluffy, ensuring the sugars are well incorporated.
  4. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. This will help to bind the ingredients together and add moisture to your dough.
  5. Sift together the dry ingredients—flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt in a separate bowl. Gradually add these to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined to form a soft, pliable dough.
  6. Fold in the mini chocolate chips and peanut butter M&Ms gently into the dough. The colorful M&Ms and chocolate chips add a fun, crunchy texture and a burst of chocolatey flavor.
  7. Shape the dough into balls and place them onto the prepared cookie sheet. For an extra touch of color and sweetness, press a few additional M&Ms on top of each dough ball.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden around the edges but still soft in the center. This short baking time ensures that your cookies will come out perfectly chewy and delicious.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This resting period allows the cookies to set without becoming too hard.

Enjoy your freshly baked Peanut Butter M&M Cookies with a glass of milk, or pack them as a sweet surprise in a loved one’s lunchbox. These cookies are not only a treat to eat but also a joy to make, filling your kitchen with the warm, inviting aroma of baked goods. Happy baking!
