Captain America Party with the BEST Giant M&M Cookie

Course Dessert
Author Maggie @ The Love Nerds


  • 8 oz unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet miniature or regular chocolate chips
  • 1 cup plain M&M’s or flavor of choice Oh, the options!


  1. Preheat oven to 300° F.
  2. Add a sheet of parchment paper to a 12 inch round pizza pan.
  3. Cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar sugar together. I prefer doing this by hand but you could also use a mixer.
  4. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  5. Add flour, baking soda and salt into the batter and stir until well blended.
  6. Fold in chocolate chips and M&Ms.
  7. Place all of the batter onto the parchment paper and form it into a circle. Make sure to stop about 1.5 inches from the rim and to have the batter be as even in thickness as possible.
  8. If you are not adding a decorative design to the top, you might want to press some M&M’s lightly into the top for decorative reasons. Once baked, you will definitely have that pop of color on top.
  9. Bake on the center rack for 30 minutes and check. You want your cookie to be golden around edges and set in the middle.
  10. If decorating, let your cookie cool for at least 15 minutes before adding the top M&Ms. When you add the M&Ms and the cookie is still very hot, the candy coating will crack slightly.
