This recipe is sooooo good! It's been a week since I have made them, and we're all having withdrawls. My three comments are this: 1) My cookies looked quite underdone when I cooked them at the suggested time, but take them out anyways because after sitting out of the oven for 15 minutes they are absolutely perfect. 2) I did spray the sheet lightly and it didn't hurt them. 3) My cookies were much more chocolate looking than the picture on the recipe.

I would have rated it 0 stars if that was an option. This recipe has way to much butter and needs more flour. It is too greasy and i had to put it in a pie pan and make it into a cake form. When I made this it looked nothing like the picture. It turned out as a big pile of gunk.

I had a very hard time with these. First of all mix in a large bowl (my medium bowl was almost overflowing). Second I don't believe I cooked them long enough and getting them off of the cookie sheet was impossible. I also didn't use peanut butter m&m s but I don't think that would make the difference.

Try not melting the butter! It will make your dough way too soft

I think someone is playing a joke on us. I don't think that picture is actually from this recipe. Mine turned out like big, thin manhole covers that stuck to the parchment paper. Sorry kids, I can't give it a good rating.

If they are cooked just long enough, they are nice and chewy. If they cook for the full time they are crispy. It's the melted butter. To make a thicker or 'fluffy' cookie, try softened butter instead. This is a GREAT base batter recipe. Great for sugar cookies too! Really really tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

I was wanting to make a basic batch of M&M cookies, and this looked like a great one to try. I omitted the cocoa powder and used plain M&Ms instead of peanut butter ones. The batter was too runny and the batter spread in the oven. I tried adding more flour, and after trying to cook one cookie, it still ran. I saved the dough - and I plan to add even more flour. I think there may be too much butter, and maybe 1 egg is better than 2. So, don't make my mistake of changing the recipe.

Everyone really liked these cookies. I did make some changes though. I used Reese's pieces in stead of M&M's. I also didn't want to add coco powder so I just added extra flour and I also used 3/4s cup sugar. They turned out nice a fluffy and very soft. I topped them off with peanut butter chips.
