Brownie stuffed mini M&M cookies (or should it be mini M&M cookies stuffed with brownies?)

Rob requested brownie the other night and ate one. I forgot to bring them into work today, so I thought I should find a way to use them up, so I made cookies with mini M&Ms and mini chocolate chips, and stuffed them with brownies!

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup, cool your dough for a few hours to keep spreading to a minimum, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup mini m&ms
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Cream butter,sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in pudding mix and other dry ingredients. Blend in m&ms and chips.

Chocolate snowball cookies

Chocolate snowball cookies

Victory cookie number two for my Bills – chocolate snowball cookies. An easy cookie to make and everyone will love them!

Cookie monster at it again!

Remember to scoop your flour, baking cocoa and powdered sugar from your respective containers into your measuring cups. If you pour directly into your measuring cups, the flour, cocoa and powdered sugar get packed in and you wind up with too much.. Which may make for a dry cookie. A grave sin, if there ever was one. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp for baking.

A stack of chocolate snowballs
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 /2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter and powdered sugar. Blend in baking cocoa and vanilla. Fold in flour. Mix in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough. Roll into balls, flatten slightly. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. These don’t spread,so you can place rows of 3 on each prepared sheet. I got 9 or 12 on each, depending on the size of cookie sheet used. Sprinkle hot cookies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. Sprinkle with more powdered sugar. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Remember to be kind. Life has been pretty hard for so many the last year and a half. The kindness you show someone may be what they need on that day.

Snowball cookies

Snowball cookies

Sunday’s win was a big one for my beloved Buffalo Bills, so I thought that called for two kinds of victory cookies! These are snowballs cookies. A very soft cookie, not overly sweet, with mini chocolate chips. These are a little bigger than a typical snowball cookie. I use 2 tbs dough.

That cookie monster!

Remember to scoop your flour and powdered sugar from into your measuring cups, as opposed to pouring then directly in. When you pour, the flour and powdered sugar are packed in and you end up with too much, making for a dry cookie. Also, preheat your oven to 375 degrees before baking So your oven cycles to the right temp.

A pile of snowballs!
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Extra powdered sugar
Sweet snowballs

Cream butter and powdered sugar. Add vanilla. Blend in flour. Mix in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs dough and roll into a ball. Slightly flatten. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. These do not spread, so you can place 3 across and fit in as many as you’d like on a wheet ( I fit 9 or 12 on a sheet, depending on the size of the cookie sheet). Bake 12 minutes. Sprinkle hot cookies with powdered sugar. Cool completley. Sprinkle with more powdered sugar. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Let me know how these turn out if you make them. Remember to be kind. We all need some kindness each day. This has been a difficult year and a half with the pandemic. Some days are harder than others. The kindness you show someone may be just what they need that day.

Snowball cookies with mini chocolate chips

The only thing mini about these cookies is the chips!

These are a variation of a recipe I saw in one of my Nestle cookbooks that one of my grandmothers gave to me when I was in college. It is also the treat that Rob requested. I used a mix of Crisco and butter, but you can use all butter if you want. It is a very easy dough to make and the cookies will be a big hit! I made mine on the larger side,with 2 tbs of dough. You can use 2 tsp and you will bake more of them, obviously. They also take less time to cook.

Remember to scoop your powdered sugar and flour from your respective containers into measuring cups so you get the correct amount. Also, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tbs water
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
That cookie monster, at it again!

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, cream butter, Crisco and powdered sugar. Add vanilla. Blend in flour and salt. Mix in water. You may have to use your mixer for a while. It takes the dough some time to come together. Add chips. Scoop out 2 tbs dough, roll into a ball and slightly flatten. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (bottoms will be lightly golden). Sprinkle warm cookies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Monday night football!!!! A mini Oreo stuffed in a sugar cookie stuffed in a brownie.

Mini Oreo stuffed inside a sugar cookie stuffed inside a brownie

Big game for the Bills – against the Titans on Monday Night Football. So I upped my treat game -a mini Oreo stuffes inside a sugar cookie stuffed inside a brownie, with a chocolate blobby of frosting on top., why the frosting? I do not know. It seemed like the right call. Is it necessary? I believe the answer is yes.

😋
  • Ingredients list
  • 2 boxes of brownie mix, plus ingredients listed on the boxes
  • Sugar cookie mix, plus ingredients listed on box/bag
  • Mini oreos

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a 9×13 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. In a bowl, combine brownie mixes and ingredients listed on boxes. Spread evenly into prepared pan. In another bowl, combine sugar cookie mix and ingredients on box. Scoop put 1 tbs cookie dough and cover a mini Oreo. Repeat process. I think I did about 16 of these. Gently press into brownie dough in pan in 4 rows of 4. Bake 28 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of brownie dough comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completley. Cut. You can frost these if you would like. Store in covered container.

Frosted Cake mix cookies with mini m&ms

Easy cake mix cookies!

I panicked at the thought of bringing 6 cupcakes into work tomorrow (although they are very large), so I decided,to add some cake mix cookies to bring in. I used a white cake mix for the cookies, topped them with white chocolate frosting, and I topped them with mini m&ms. They cookies are puffy and soft and I think you will really like them. You can try and different cake mix flavor if you want. You can also use semisweet or milk chocolate chips in the frosting if you prefer. Remember to scoop your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup so you get the correct amount, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before you start baking, so the oven is the perfect temp. Also, I really piled on the frosting thick and still had a little left over. If you don’t want a ton of frosting on the cookies, you can halve the frosting recipe or save it to use on something else.☺
