Valentine M&M-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Valentine's Day is just a few days away, and I made these heart-shaped M&M-Chocolate Chip cookies for my 7 year-old to take to her dance class. I used my chocolate chip cookie recipe, and added a bag of Valentine-colored M&Ms. Lots of chocolate...Yum!

To get the heart shape you have to start out with a weird "V" shape. When the cookies bake and spread they'll take on the heart shape.

Start with two scoops of cookie dough (I used my regular-sized scoop). Use your fingers to shape each ball of dough into a tear shape and put them on your baking sheet in the shape of a "V". Put some extra M&Ms on the top so they show after baking.

Pinch the bottom of the heart to get a better heart-shaped cookie. Bake them for 8-10 minutes, or until they're just starting to brown.

Aren't they cute?

Have a great Valentine's Day!


  1. Tiffiny, I have been following your blog for quite a while and love it! These cookies are the cutest thing! Such a great idea! You could use these anytime of the year...for friends, new home goodies, if someone just needs some extra love. I may have to send these in a care package or two for my own kids. Thanks for always sharing your wonderful cooking ideas and recipes.

  2. Bridget, Thanks! That's quite a compliment coming from the Cookie Goddess ;)

  5. So I took this idea using the Easter M&M's and made them into egg shapes. How long can I milk this for? ;o)

  7. Thanks for your insight. This is just what I needed to make my V'day cookies a success! <3

  8. Thank you for this idea. I bought heart cookie cutters before finding this. I just tried both and this method gives a more defined heart shape. Awesome!
