Looking for a new cookie to make at home?
 
I’m always looking for new ingredients to mix things up, so I was excited to find these new Coffee Nut M&M’s when browsing the grocery aisle. I’m a coffee addict, so they obviously caught my eye right away!
 
This Mocha Chocolate Nut recipe is absolutely delicious and the M&M’s give the cookie a little kick with the coffee nut flavour. To note, the coffee flavour isn’t overpowering, so even those not addicted to coffee can enjoy these cookies.
