Chewy Raspberry Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Raspberry Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found some Raspberry M&M’s at Cyber Candy and I felt they were too fun to just eat on their own. I already made some chocolate chip cookies recently so I decided to use the chewy chocolate chip recipe from Milk & Cookies (one of my favorite books).

I decided to pair the Raspberry M&M’s with some extra dark chocolate chips. The raspberry flavor of the M&M’s really permeated the cookies and gave them a great dark chocolate and fruity flavor.

I accidentally added some baking powder to the cookies but they still turned out ok. I took my eyes off the recipe for one second and managed to add in an ingredient from a recipe on the opposite page!. Still, they are perfect for dipping in my cafe con leche coffe cups that I bought in Sevilla.

  1. hmm these look so yummy! I love anything chocolate and raspberry! I’ve been wanting to try those Raspberry M&M’s for a while now but I’m a bit scared because I’m not a dark chocolate lover on it’s own…but I guess paired with the raspberry it might be okay because I can handle the dark chocolate and Mint M&M’S. I see you used President butter, when I made my cookie dough layer cake, I had to buy 4 packs of butter at the supermarket, I bought 3 of the supermarkets own brand and one pack of President, at the checkout my husband asked me why and I told him the French one was for the frosting on the outside because it was fancier! there was only a 2p difference in their cost but I thought the french butter must be more posh right?! hehe

    • I haven’t had the mint M&M’s but I would imagine the dark chocolate factor is the same. I wouldn’t classify dark chocolate M&M’s as real dark chocolate anyway! I almost always buy President. It’s either always the cheapest at waitrose (£1.20) or similar in price to their store brand.

  2. Raspberry M&Ms? I’ve never seen them before – how cool! I love dark chocolate which go very well with raspberries so these cookies are right up my alley! Love the bright pink colour! I love mint M&Ms too which I believe are only sold in Sydney – I’m hoping to get a fresh supply later this year :)

  3. Very cool! I’ve never seen Raspberry M&M’s before – not even on my recent trip there! The cookies look delicious, and are very unique with the raspberry and chocolate.
