On my most recent trip to Walmart I went down the Easter candy aisle and I saw several fun new Easter M&M’s flavors!   I picked up a bag of the Easter Sundae and a bag of the M&M’s Speckled Malt Easter Eggs.   I made cupcakes with the Easter Sundae ones but I wanted to make cookies with the speckled malt eggs.

I ended up using the regular cookie recipe I use all of the time with butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and flour.   I added in the M&M’s speckled malt eggs as well as some mini chocolate chips.   They were really easy to make and only took 12-14 minutes to bake.

The resulting cookie looked like a chocolate chip cookie but with plenty of pastel speckled eggs in the mixture.  It really gave these cookies a spring feel and the malt flavor really came through in the cookies.  These were a great choice for Easter and they are so easy that the kids can even help making them!
