We’re back again with a fun and festive cookie that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day! My Valentine’s Day M&M Funfetti Cookies are GIANT, thick, gooey, and packed with white chocolate chips, sprinkles, and chocolate shell coated candies.

This is cookie #4 for my “10 Cookies for Valentine’s Day” series, and I knew I needed to include one of my classic massive cookie recipes! If you’d like to make them smaller, you certainly can make them smaller, but the size is everything with these cookies. Just make them huge, then slice them into 4 pieces to share (kind of like our beloved massive Utah chain cookies, eh?).

HOW TO MAKE VALENTINE’S DAY COOKIES

My Valentine’s Day M&M Funfetti cookies use ingredients that you most likely have right in your pantry, but you may need to grab a couple of things when making your grocery list! Toss in come mini M&M’s, sprinkles, and white chocolate chips, and you’ll be all set!

  • unsalted butter – make sure it’s cold!
  • brown sugar – I always use light brown sugar.
  • granulated sugar
  • eggs – large eggs will be best!
  • vanilla
  • all purpose flour – make sure to measure it correctly so your cookies don’t come out as a blob that won’t flatten out even a little bit while baking!
  • cornstarch
  • baking soda – if yours is more than a month or two old, it’s time to get a new one! Old baking soda will give you flat-as-a-pancake cookies.
  • salt
  • Valentine’s Day jimmies/sprinkles – found mine at Walmart!
  • white chocolate chips
  • Valentine’s Themed M&Ms

The directions are below, and they come together SO easily – no chilling, no fuss! Also, I included a few tips that make these cookies absolutely perfect every single time. Make sure to grab a couple cookie sheets! I usually do fourcookies per sheet, and they finish baking in about 9 minutes.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS:

Here’s a few tips for making sure these cookies come out perfectly every time (which isn’t that hard because these are basically fool proof!)

  • Yes, 410 degrees on traditional (not convection bake) oven setting is perfect. Seems high, but trust me, it’s essential to nailing the toasted outside & gooey inside texture.
  • No need to mix together your dry ingredients beforehand. Just toss them right in and mix them together.
  • Eggs need to be cold, and same with your butter.
  • Make sure to completely cream together the butter and sugar before adding in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Press the add-ins below the cookie dough line. That way they don’t burn in the oven.

  • Reserve a few off the add-ins (chocolate chips, M&M’s, sprinkles, etc) to press onto the outside of the cookie for a better cookie-look. Although, they will taste exactly the same either way
  • I make mine the size of a baseball. They should flatten out slightly. If they flatten out all the way, your baking soda isn’t fresh enough. I’ve also noticed they flatten slightly as they cool, too. If you notice your first batch doesn’t flatten enough, then slightly press down on the next batch that’s headed into the oven.
  • If you decide to make these cookies smaller, just make sure to bake them a little less time and keep a close eye on them in the oven. They should still have the gooey center and golden outside texture.
  • No need to chill the cookies! That’s the best part!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 whole eggs, cold
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Valentine's sprinkles, (I used red, pink, white, nonpareils)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Valentine's Day M&Ms

Instructions

  • Prep two large aluminum cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 410 degrees (yep, that's right!)

  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, whip up the butter for 1 minute until it's light and fluffy, then add in the sugars to cream together with the butter for 3 minutes on high speed.

  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then add in the vanilla and eggs one at a time, whipping up well between each addition.

  • Add in the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt (no the sea salt) and slowly mix together by hand or on the very lowest mixer speed until just combined (don't overmix!)

  • Reserve a few of the M&M's (to press on later), then hand stir or lowest-speed-mix the chocolate chips, Valentine's sprinkles, and white chocolate chips into the batter. Split the dough into 8 balls (baseball-sized) and place 4 on each cookie sheet. Hand-press on some of the M&M's.

  • Bake for 9-10 minutes. They should be slightly golden, slightly mounded in the middle, thick/tall, and gooey in the center. Let them cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
