I saw this package of M and M's and who could resist the beautiful pink packaging. Also, who could resist the combination of raspberry and dark chocolate. Not me, I tell you that.
So I thought I would toss these into some cookies with the always delicious mini chips and they turned out pretty great. Fun treat for the weekend.
You will see that I used cold butter. That's because I didn't have any softened and I was decided to make cookies. I just slice the butter into 1 Tablespoon servings and cream that with the sugar. It may take a bit longer to get it creamy, but it works just as well for the end result. ~Bake away.
