  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3.5oz. packet instant vanilla pudding mix (not sugar-free or cook & serve)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup crushed peanut butter egg M&M's
  • 1/2 cup whole peanut butter egg M&M's
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar with electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add egg and stir until combined.
  2. On low speed, add in vanilla and pudding mix. Add baking soda and stir for 10 seconds. Slowly add in flour and mix for 30 seconds, or until dough is combined. On low speed, add in crushed M&M's and mini chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
  3. Scoop and roll into 3-tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Press each dough ball into a 3" egg shaped cookie cutter, flattening out the tops of each cookie so they look like smooth, thick dough eggs. Place pan in the refrigerator for 1 hour to chill.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until edges start to brown (mine took about 12 minutes, but you will want to watch your oven for doneness).
  5. Immediately after removing from the oven, press whole peanut butter m&m eggs into the tops of each one. Allow for the cookies to continue to cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes until removing cookies from the baking sheet.
