Peanut M&M Cookie Recipe?

StrawbrryF Dec 19, 2009 05:20 PM

Does anyone have a good PEANUT M&M cookie recipe?

I still have a TON of them left over from Halloween and I simply must have the space back. So I'm looking to turn them into something holiday-themed.

All the recipes I found use either regular or mini M&Ms. What's a girl to do with the peanut variety? (No, "eat them as is" is not an answer. I've been doing that for the past 2 months and I'm not making a dent.)

Thanks in advance for anyone who solves my peanut M&M dilemma!

    Peanut M&Ms are bigger, which is probably why you don't see many recipes for them. Maybe you could make one of those giant cookies (the plate-sized ones you can buy in supermarket bakeries) and decorate them. Or maybe you can chop them up in a food processor and add them to a brownie dough.

    Or send them to me :)

      Maybe one of these will float your boat:

        use them in peanut butter cookies and give them as gifts. just add them in. basic cookie recipes are very forgiving.

          Thanks all! I didn't expect to hear back so quickly.

          Emme, I think I'm going to try those half-chocolate, half-peanut butter ones. Those sound gooooood. I'll post pics when I'm done!

              So... I baked them. They're fairly easy to make, esp. with an electric mixer.

              Next time, I'll probably decrease the sugar because they're on the sweet side (not unpleasantly so, I just like a more subtle flavor in my baked goods). And I really recommend the chocolate half as a stand alone cookie without the inclusion of M&Ms: very nice texture and flavor.
