  • 1 cup + 3 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs large
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup M&M's Christmas Colors
  • 1 cup Confectioner's Sugar


  • In a medium sized bowl combine your all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt, and whisk together. Set aside.
  • In a separate, large bowl, combine oil, white sugar, and brown sugar, and vanilla, use a hand mixer to cream it together.
  • Add flour mixture to the large bowl with sugar mixture, combining it a little at a time, and mixing with a hand mixer, until combined. The dough will be very thick.
  • Stir in the M&M's and use your hands to work them into the dough.
  • Cover the dough and place it in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to chill.
  • Once completely chilled, dough should be thick and scoopable. Remove it from fridge, and at this time preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Use a cookie scoop or your hands to form 1 inch balls of dough.
  • Put the confectioner's sugar into a shallow dish, and roll each of the dough balls around in the powdered sugar until it is completely covered.
  • Place cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between each one.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 9-10 minutes.
  • Let cookies rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes after baking, then remove to a cooling rack.
  • Let cool, and enjoy!


Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
