    It is normal on church Sundays for the Amish women to bake treats to serve the little ones mid-way through the service so they are not hungry and restless. These M&M'S cookies are the first to go because not only are they delicious but the bright colored M&M's attract attention.

    ingredients
    • 2, chopped American Heritage® Chocolate Sticks
    • 1 cup ( two sticks) butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup packaged brown sugar
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon corn syrup
    • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
    • 1 1/2 cups of creamy peanut butter
    • 4 1/2 cups of quick cooking oats
    • 2 cups of M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies (red, white, & blue blend shown).
    Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    Step 2

    In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time and mixing between each addition, add the vanilla, corn syrup, baking, soda, and peanut butter. Mix well until smooth.

    Step 3

    Add the oats and mix well, scraping the sides of the bowl. Add the chopped chocolate and mix until they are evenly distributed through out the mixture. Do the same for the M&M'S.

    Step 4

    Drop that batter using a cookie scoop 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until the edges are brown, around 10 to 12 minutes.

    Step 5

    Let cool on the baking sheets for about 3 minutes before removing. Transfer to cooling racks. Cool completely and then transfer to sealed containers. Will stay fresh for up to 5 days.
