Loaded M&M Easter Cookie Recipe You'll Love

Holidays make me think I have a legitimate excuse to eat all the treats I want in order to celebrate fully. For example, Valentine’s Day – eat all the chocolates; Thanksgiving – eat all the pie; Christmas – eat all the fudge.

And do you know what I eat at Easter? All the edible pastel things. But I was really craving cookies, so I put edible pastel things in and on the cookies, and then it was all in the name of festivity.
