I have no idea where this recipe came from originally, but it's become a family staple for Christmas (which is the only time you can actually find the mint M&Ms for this).


  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1¼ cups sugar, divided
  • ¾ cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla axtract
  • 1 10-ounce package mint chocolate chips or M&Ms

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 5 dozen


I often can't find mint chocolate chips or M&Ms at the grocery store, but places like CVS/Walgreens/Target seem to usually have them in stock around the holidays.


  1. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl, mix oil and 1 cup sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Slowly fold in dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips or M&Ms.
  2. Roll dough into small balls and drop in a bowl with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar until coated. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350°F. They will be very pale -- do not overbake!
