Sweet Sunday – M&M Cookies

Happy Sweet Sunday!

How was your Valentine’s Day? Or did you celebrate Galentine’s Day just like me? This might be the best thing to have been created in response to a holiday. Celebrate your lady-friends just like they do in Parks & Recreation. Amy Poehler, you perfect human being, what a great day to think of. parks and recreationAnyways I hope you have all had a lovely week, and are prepared for the next one. For this, I can give you a helping hand with these M&M cookies, which are there for you on Monday when everything goes wrong, and will probably not be there on Friday as they will be devoured three days before.

M&M cookiesAmong the ingredients of these cookies are cane sugar and golden syrup, which give them a texture that’s stickier than those of other cookies. Also, the ingredients add that perfect taste of sweetness, which is not too overpowering, yet so satisfying. M&M cookiesThese cookies would be scumptious on their own, but the addition of the M&M’s just adds that extra crunch which makes it irresistible.M&M cookiesEnjoy your Sunday!
