Valentine's Chocolate M&M Cookies

Full disclosure: these were supposed to be red velvet cookies in honor of Valentine's day. But, I'm adaptable. I didn't put enough red food dye in these, so they turned into simple chocolate cookies. I think they're still plenty festive and they still tasted good! So here you have it: Valentine's M&M chocolate cookies!

Adapted from this recipe
1c Butter (softened)
1c Brown Sugar
3/4c Sugar
3c Flour
1tsp Baking Soda
2 Eggs
1tsp Vanilla
1/2tsp Salt
2/3c Cocoa Powder
2c Valentine's M&Ms

OVEN: 375F
BAKE: 10-12min
YIELD: 3.5 Dozen

1. Cream together butter and sugars until fluffy.

2. Mix in baking soda, eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, and salt.

3. Slowly mix in the flour until incorporated. 

4. Fold in the M&Ms and cool for twenty to thirty minutes. 

5. Scoop (or drop by rounded tablespoons if you don't have a cookie scoop) onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Optional: put two or three M&Ms on top of each cookie to make it look fancier.

6. Bake up and cool on a cooling rack.
