Big chocolatey cookies full of Mega M&Ms.
I’m very aware that I eat my feelings. Tired, sad and stressed always lead me to chocolate, carbs, ice cream, cookies or all of the above. I try not to go overboard and realize that this isn’t the healthiest way to deal with emotions. But frankly, I don’t think there is anything wrong with a cookie or two to lift the spirits.
The last month or so has been a bit of a roller coaster and after a particularly rough ten days my daily dose of chocolate was part of what was keeping me sane. I was overdue for some baking and decided to make something that could fulfill everything I was craving; warm, chocolatey and comforting carbs. Baking, photographing, and then also eating these cookies made me feel just a bit better. The bright colored M&Ms and pretty napkins were another visual way to boost my mood. I took advantage of a few minutes when the sun was actually out to take capture that.
And most importantly for you, this recipe was a success. The chocolatey base and gigantic chocolate candies (where have these Mega M&Ms been all my life?) will cure any chocolate craving you might have. Oh yeah, and they are fast and easy, too. You don’t need to chill the dough at all before baking them.
