Chocolate M&M Cookies

Christmas is coming, which means lots and lots of cookies. I love the smell of baking in the morning. The kids were running circles around me waiting for these cookies to cool before they attacked them. These cookies are so easy to make and so rich and yummy. They are definitely a keeper for next year.
