As soon as I saw the new Caramel M&M’s out in stores, I knew I had to throw them into some sort of delicious cookie. This super simple vanilla pudding cookie recipe seemed like the perfect fit!
If you haven’t had any of the Caramel M&M’s yet, then let me tell you that they are large. They are pretty close to the size of peanut M&M’s so I was surprised by the amount that came in the bag.
I was worried that there was not going to be enough for an entire batch of cookies. However, the caramel is so sweet that four to six M&M’s in each cookie is actually plenty.
