Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup M&M’s
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chocolate candy sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the egg, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Gradually add to the butter mixture. Mix until combined, being careful to not overmix. Fold in the oats, M&M’s, chocolate chips, and chocolate candy sprinkles. Chill the dough for 30 minutes. Using a cookie scoop, shape the dough into 2-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Top with extra chocolate candy sprinkles.
  4. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
  5. Cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes; the cookies will firm slightly as they cool. Serve.
