I had a bunch of M&Ms left from when I made Leprechaun Hugs a little while back, so I decided to look up a recipe for M&M cookies. These were wonderful! They're best straight out of the oven, so I recommend gently reheating them either in the oven or super quickly in the microwave when you go to enjoy the leftovers. This makes a lot of cookies, which was perfect, because I sent some in to work with Dino, and saved a bunch for some friends that were coming over for dinner on Friday.
