White Chocolate M&M Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe
Soft and chewy snickerdoodle cookies with white chocolate M&Ms and white chocolate chips.
Guys and and gals… let me present to you my very favorite, like OF ALL TIME, Snickerdoodle cookies!
It's because of the M&MS.
You guys knew it was because of the M&MS right?
I'm freakishly, fiendishly, feverishly obsessed with M&MS. And apparently alliterations. <– OMG! I did it again! ????
I am in the weirdest mood tonight guys. Who knows how this post is gonna go?!
Seriously though. These cookies deserve a round of applause for being so delectably delicious (I swear I'm not speaking in alliterations on purpose… okay, fine. Maybe just a little. Okay, fine. It was totally on purpose.)
These cookies are the sequel to an all-time reader favorite on Something Swanky, my White Chocolate Pudding Snickerdoodles (with over 261K pins!). And holy cow, boy did those cookies need a sequel. Let me tell ya! I know cookies, and these two Snickerdoodle recipes are worth their weight in gold.
If you're a regular around here, then you know I'm crazy about my cookies. I mean, I'm crazy about lots of things. And just kind of crazy in general. But I mean like REALLY CRAZY when it comes to cookies. In fact, I come from a long line of crazy cookie cuckoos (???? I don't know why, I just had to slip another one in there… something about that is just tickling me pink).
But in all seriousness, my family tree is full of master cookie bakers. The obsession runs deep, ya'll. So when it comes to making the best cookies, we really don't play around. Probably because we don't play around when it comes to EATING them either ????.
I'm basing this recipe on my favorite Quick & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (it's been my go-to for months now). But we're adding a little bit of cream of tartar for that signature Snickerdoodle taste. And we're nixing the chocolate chips and adding, of course, white chocolate chips and white chocolate M&MS, giving these cookies an irresistible bit of crackly candy crunch (okay, that one was for real unintended!) and smooth white chocolate flavor.
Added bonus– candy corn colored M&MS for Halloween! Yay! ✌????❤️????
- 1 cup butter, cold
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups White Chocolate M&MS
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
- cinnamon sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Melt the butter in a large microwave safe bowl for 45 seconds.
Stir in the sugars. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well.
Combine dry ingredients together and stir into the butter and sugar mixture until dough forms.
Stir in M&MS and chips.
Scoop dough (about 2 tbsp) and roll in cinnamon sugar until well coated. Then place on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2" apart.
Bake for 9 minutes, until edges are slightly golden. Let cool on the pan for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack.
