Intimidated by holiday baking? Don't be with this easy-to-make giant cookie loaded with M&M’S in festive holiday colors. This crowd-pleasing and giftable treat is perfect for baking novices!



  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper; butter the paper. Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Roughly chop 1 cup of the M&M’S.
  2. Beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Add the chopped M&M’S and chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Scrape the dough evenly into the pan and smooth the top. 
  3. Transfer to the oven and bake 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and press the remaining 1/4 cup whole M&M’S into the top, evenly spacing them out. Return to the oven and bake until golden, 12 to 14 more minutes. Let cool 20 minutes in the pan, then remove the springform ring and let cool completely. Transfer the cookie to a rack set over a baking sheet. 
  4. Make the glaze: Whisk the confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons milk in a small bowl; thin with 1 more tablespoon milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the glaze has a glue-like consistency. Drizzle over the cookie and let set before slicing.
