M&M’s Cookie Pie Recipe

I love M&M’s cookies. Something about the buttery dough and the M&M’s peering out make them so hard to resist.

I have quite a collection of M&M’s recipes. These cookies being my best and favorite M&M’s cookies, and there’s this version which I love for springtime. There’s Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Bars which is one of the most popular recipes on my site along with Triple Peanut Butter Cookie Pie with M&M’s.

And now there’s a giant M&M’s cookie baked as a pie that can be added to the list. It’s such an easy ‘pie’ to make, but really it’s cookie dough you’re making. And it’s simple, fast, no-mixer, one-bowl dough at that.

Melt butter, stir in an egg, sugars, flour, the chocolate chips, M&M’s, assorted candy, and you’re done. The pie was begging to be loaded with chocolate chips, mini peanut butter cups, and Rolos. The dough is sweet, buttery, and the perfect blank canvas to load with candy.

Just as I prefer my cookies, the interior of the cookie pie is slightly underbaked, squishy soft, and supremely moist while the edges are chewier with a slight crispiness. There’s no baking powder or baking soda because I wanted the cookie pie to be dense and not at all cakey.

What I especially like about this kind of pie is that there’s no need to frost it or whip cream. And comparing it to cookies, you don’t have to form individual mounds of dough or chill dough. Always nice.

It would be a hit at any kiddie birthday party, shower, graduation, or girls-night-in. My family loved it and I donated half of it to friends after we scarfed the first half in a sitting.

It’s a little dangerous that it’s ready from start to finish in a half hour. Who said bigger isn’t better?

How to Make a Cookie Pie

Melt the butter, then whisk in the egg, sugars, and vanilla. Add the flour, salt, and chocolate chips in next. Then, gently fold in half of the M&M’s. 

Turn the cookie dough into a greased 9-inch pie dish and sprinkle the rest of the M&M’s on top. Gently press the peanut butter cups and Rolos into the top of the cookie pie as well. 

Bake the M&M’s cookie pie until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter.

What Type of M&M’s Should I Use? 

I used regular M&M’s, but you’re welcome to use any kind you’d like. Peanut, peanut butter, dark, and so forth will all work nicely here. 

Can I Add Other Candy to This Cookie Cake Pie? 

Yes! I had a smorgasbord of Valentine’s, pre-Easter, and assorted candy from other recipes, and in it went. Use this cookie cake pie recipe as an excuse to clean out your pantry from random candy and half-opened bags of baking chips.

Can I Make This in a Square Baking Dish? 

If you don’t have a pie plate on hand, you can likely make this recipe as M&M’s cookie bars. You’d likely need to use a 9×9-inch baking dish or an 8×8-inch baking dish. The bake time may vary slightly, but I can’t say for certain. 

Can I Freeze Cookie Pie? 

Yes! You can freeze this cookie cake pie whole or freeze individual slices. Just note that the color may leech from the M&M’s if you freeze it (it’ll still taste fantastic though!).

Tips for Making M&M’s Cookie Pie

Note that this cookie cake pie is meant to be on the soft and under baked side in the center while the edges are crisper, which is how I prefer my cookies. In general, if you prefer more well-done cookies, bake the pie a few minutes longer.

You can make this M&M’s cookie pie suitable for any holiday or event simply by using different colors of M&M’s! 

You’re also welcome to use different kinds of baking chips. I prefer using semi-sweet chocolate chips, but white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and so forth will all work.

Yield: 10
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Cooling Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup M&M's, divided (I used plain original but peanut, peanut butter, dark, etc. all okay)
  • 6 mini peanut butter cups
  • 6 Rolos (or other mini/bite-size candy bar)

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9-inch pie dish very well with cooking spray; set aside.
    2. In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 minute on high power.
    3. Wait momentarily before adding the egg so you don’t scramble it. Add the egg, sugars, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
    4. Add the flour, optional salt, and stir until just combined; don’t overmix.
    5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
    6. Add about 1/4 cup M&M's and stir to combine; reserve remainder.
    7. Turn batter out into prepared pie dish, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
    8. Evenly add the remaining M&M's to the top of the batter, pushing them down slightly to anchor.
    9. Evenly insert the peanut butter cups and Rolos into the batter, pushing them down so the top is almost flush with the surface of the dough.
    10. Bake for about 24 to 26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. If your pie has risen in the center, it will deflate as it cools.
    11. Allow pie to cool in dish for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

  • Pie is meant to be on the soft and underbaked side in the center while edges are crisper, which is how I prefer my cookies. In general, if you prefer more well-done cookies, bake a few minutes longer.
  • Pie will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months (color may leech from the M&Ms if you freeze it).

  1. Yum~lious!

  2. Hi! You have a wonderful site! Would this recipe be able to be prepared in a 8×8″ baking dish, similar to your blondies, or no?

  3. Omg!! I’m gonna try it ! I will make it for my boyfriend so I hope he likes it and it turns out right! Wish me luck!!!

  4. I have a 9.5 inch glass pan, do you think that would affect my results/baking time? I really wanna try this out as it looks delicious but I’m not sure how long to bake it for since my dish is slightly bigger. Thanks.

  5. I went to a baby shower yesterday at my cousin’s house and decided to bake 2 of your recipes and bring them along – they were a hit! I made this M&M cookie pie, and also made your soft M&M chocolate chip cookies. For the m&m’s in both recipes I bought 2 bags of Easter m&m’s and used all of the pink and blue ones (the other colors will be good for snacking on Easter!). For the pie I used inverted hershey kisses (left from xmas) and the blue & pink m&m’s. For the cookies I made them a bit smaller than the recipe (a total of 25), again using the blue and pink m&m’s, and baked them for 10 minutes. People started picking at the dessert even before cake and coffee was served! One lady took 2 cookies, then another 2, then gave 2 to her husband, who went back and got 2 more for himself, and before she left, she took another cookie and made her way over to the pie!! My cousin thanked me more than once for the delicious desserts – so I pass my thanks to you, Averie, for creating such delicious recipes!

    • What a lovely comment and thanks for all the compliments! And thanks for trying the recipes and I’m glad they came out great for you! Love your creative spin on things with the M&M color choices!

  6. I just made this today and it turned out beautifully! I used Valentine M&Ms (nothing like on sale candy after the holiday…) and half a bag of wrapped caramels that were sitting in my cupboard.

    Thank you as always for the amazing recipe!

  7. This looks and sounds yummy! I agree~there’s something fun about M&M’s. Of course, chocolate, so they’re tasty, but they’re cute too, with the variety and colors.
