- 1/2 c. salted butter, softened
- 1 c. dark brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs, room temperature

- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2 c. all-purpose flour
- 1/2 c. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Yields Approximately 1 1/2 Dozen Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix to combine. Add the vanilla and peanut butter and mix until combined. Dissolve the cocoa powder and milk powder in the water, then add to the mixture and beat to combine.
In a bowl, sift together the salt, baking powder, and flour. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and the M&Ms and mix to combine.
Take two tablespoons of dough and form dough ball before placing onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are lightly firm to the touch.
