Biscoff and Pumpkin Spice M&M Cookies

I was walking through Target the other day and I heard a crazy amount of people in the candy section. What was all the fuss? Well…the Target folks were putting out the Halloween candy! Pardon me while I jump up and down and squeal with glee. It’s here! It’s here! And while I was drooling over the aisle, the new Pumpkin Spice M&Ms caught my eye. I quickly picked up a bag, drove home and made these Biscoff and Pumpkin Spice M&M Cookies. Then I promptly ate half a dozen.

When did M&Ms get so big?

I mean, not regular M&Ms they are still the same size they have always been. But these new flavors are always so much bigger than the regular M&Ms.

Like the Mint ones at Christmas time. Which by the way are my favorite Christmas candy.

And these Pumpkin Spice M&Ms? They are waaaaaaay bigger than regular M&Ms.

Not that I am complaining. Especially when they are as good as these are. I was a little skeptical about them at first to be honest. They could’ve been way over the top pumpkin spicy you know? But not these, I could taste the chocolate and the pumpkin flavor was very subtle. It worked well for these cookies.

And the gingery flavor that you get from the Biscoff spread also goes so well with the M&Ms. These just might be the perfect fall cookie.

Kellan thinks so.

Or at least that is what I can assume because every time I turn my head he’s got one in his mouth. He looks up, smiles and says “Kellan eat a cookie!”

That kid, I tell you, steals my heart every day.

And my cookies.

      I actually used a little bit of both because I had just enough of both for the recipe. So I’d say you could use either :)

    I have yet to try the pumpkin M&M’s. I’m intrigued and slightly terrified – especially after last year’s Pumpkin Hershey Kiss over dose, I was shying away from pumpkin flavored candies…but I don’t think I can anylonger. I must jump back on that proverbial horse… and make oodles of COOKIES!

    Dude, I know! The seasonal M&M’s are significantly bigger than the regular ones, but I looooove that :) the peppermint ones at Christmastime are my absolute fave! I hoard those suckers in my freezer all year long, hehe. These cookies are amazing, Des! Biscoff and pumpkin deserve to be BFFs.
