As a tribute to my Mother I created some cookies based upon her favorite chocolate – M&Ms. She’s the type of mom who put up with my creative errors in the kitchen, from breaking eggs on the floor and not in a bowl and cooking pasta by adding it to cold water and then boiling. She put up with it all and never really complained; simply cleaned up my messes, smiled and helped me decipher some of her handwriting on old faded recipe cards.

So for the entire Moms, Moms to be, grandmothers and great grandmothers I thank you for your patience, dedication and loving guidance that you’ve given family members over the years. This recipe is a special thanks to my Mom for giving me the desire to excel and the love to work magic with food. Enjoy
