A few weeks ago, I got to a nice round number of followers on my Instagram account (50 thousand followers!). Celebrating this, I decided to photograph a sweet and colorful 50K picture and publish it. After a little thought, I decided that the most colorful way to celebrate was to arrange M&M’s patiently in a shape of 50K. the one thing I didn’t think of was what I’ll have to do with the huge amount of chocolate candies I had left.

So, I gave a little to my family and friends, everyone who visited us at home enjoyed the colored candies that loaded a huge jar in the living room. However, the candies weren’t even close to finish, and I knew I had to make something a little more significant and use it in a recipe.

When my brother came to bake with me recently, and because he is a big fan of M&M’s, I just knew we’d make these colorful cookies together. These M&M’s chocolate chip cookies are so crispy, colorful and delicious. They are very easy to make, kids really love them, and will be a great addition to your Purim Mishloach Manot.
