There are certain things in life that I just want to bottle up and carry with me everywhere.  Sunsets are one of them

I mean really, who would NOT want to see this pretty sunset in Marco Island EVERYDAY!

Iced Coffees with soy milk (from Starbucks) I mean I can bottle those up and drink them ALL THE TIME, but then I would never sleep, not that I do…

Family FaceTime Chats while I am at school.  I have a good feeling every member of my family will bug me about posting this..oh well!

Rosemary Salt Bagels with cream cheese, lox, tomato, onions and capers from College Town Bagels in Ithaca.

My trip last summer to Sedona, AZ.

My friends.  Until August 17th…

This guy… :)

AND the smell of cookies baking in your oven.  Seriously, there should be a Febreeze baking line that smells like yummy desserts baking in your oven. Now only if I could figure out a way to bottle the smell of THESE chocolate fudge cookies with peanut butter M+M’s… Until then, you’re just going to have to make them!

Is it just me, or does anyone else loathe dragging out their stand mixer? Any recipe that eliminates the need for the mixer is a winner in my book! These just use a bowl and the power of your own arms…

2 bowls. The one on the left has brown sugar and white sugar and the one on the right has flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt.  Of course you don’t NEED two bowls (just at the dry directly into the other bowl) but I had time so I premixed it all.

Then you add cooled browned butter  butter, 1 egg, 1 egg yolk and vanilla into the sugars.

Give it a stir then add in the flour/cocoa powder mixture.

Once its is combined I added the peanut butter M+Ms..you could use any kind but the peanut butter ones gave it more flavor!  Plus, they taste AMAZING!

Mound of dough..

To form the cookies, you create 24 balls of dough the break them in half and reattach them so the jagged parts are facing out, as shown.

Bake from 10-12 minutes and VOILA! Delicious cookies.

They have the nutty flavor from the browned butter AND peanut butter and have the perfect amount of chocolate.  The crunch from the M+Ms is much needed between the smooth texture of the cookies!

I don’t have a stand mixer (yet, hopefully) but I totally agree with other appliances, especially the arm-nubmingly heavy food processor! These look sooo good.
