Mini M&M Cookies

I made a meal for a friend today and came across a new cookie recipe I had to try.  I love trying new recipes but… I LOVE trying new desserts!  These cookies turned out super soft and chewy.  My kiddos loved them too!  Grab a glass of cold milk and you’ve got the perfect after school snack!
