Over the weekend, I made use of the Pumpkin Spice M&Ms. I tried eating them straight up and they’re a little too much for me. So I thought I’d try baking them into a cookie. It worked. I wanted to use up some semi-sweet chocolate chips I had in my cabinet, too, so I threw those in to add a little more chocolate but you can leave them out. If you can find the M&Ms in your stores (I think they may only be in Targets), then try this cookie.
