While we were at Disney, our resort had fabulous food. We all especially loved their cookies! When I got home I was craving them so I wanted to try and replicate them. I found this recipe and they are very close! These Disney World Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies are chewy yet soft and just the right amount of chocolate! Plus the addition of the M&Ms is so fun and actually adds great consistency too. This recipe is easily halved, or you can store half of the dough in dough balls in the freezer ready to make at any time.
