Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1-1/4 cup holiday M&Ms, divided
  • 1 cup pretzels pieces, crushed
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until creamy, 2 minutes. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, along with the vanilla.
  3. When the wet ingredients are combined, add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Turn mixer on low and beat in the oats.
  4. Fold in 1 cup of the M&Ms, pretzel pieces, and chocolate chips. Scoop out dough by the 1/4 cup full and place 3-inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Pull the pan out of the oven and push some of the remaining 1/4 cup M&Ms on to the top of the cookies. Bake an additional 2-3 minutes and remove to let cool on the baking sheet.
  6. Eat warm (highly recommend) or let cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
