We don’t get many specialty items at the PX here in Germany. We’ve got the standard bags of candy and seasonal stuff, but when it comes to unique flavors and new items, we don’t tend to see it much. SO, when I spotted a bag Raspberry Dark Chocolate M&Ms I snatched them up immediately to bake into cookies! I mean, seriously… how could I not?
After opening the bag to sample one – I ended up sampling half the bag and was forced to go back to the store and buy another one. I think everyone else in Grafenwoehr had the same idea I did, cause there was only one bag left! ACK! Luckily though, I have plenty to make these cookies.
The base for these cookies is a dark chocolate cookie… which, by itself is pretty darn delicious. It’s fudgey, soft and almost like a brownie. But, you know me… I have to kick things up a notch! So along with the Raspberry M&Ms, I added some espresso powder and extra dark chocolate chunks to the batter to intensify the chocolate flavor. I think it worked.
If you come across these Raspberry Dark Chocolate M&Ms… snatch up a couple bags and make these cookies. They won’t disappoint you!
PS… You’ll need a big glass of milk with these! YUM!
