Cookie Mix

  • All purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Cooking oats
  • M&M’s
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Brown sugar, packed
  • White sugar
  • Chopped pecans

The question “where can I find pink M&M’s” has been asked a lot lately. The pink M&M’s featured here were found in the breast cancer awareness bags on the seasonal aisle at the grocery store, and they are certainly much cheaper to purchase that way rather than buying them online and having them shipped– at least at this point in time.


To get the free printable (available in PDF format), or to view the tutorial and other photos of the cookie mix, visit the link below!We went ahead and did the looking for you, and we found that the prices for pink M&M’s are almost double the cost of the regular colors.

After printing the cookie labels, you can simply use a paper punch with the design of your choice to clip out the sticker.

    You should have specified Old Fashion oatmeal or Quick Cooking Oatmeal. Old Fashion requires more moisture in a recipe. I used Quick cooking and they were delicious.
    You can find different colored candy shell covered chocolate candies at stores that sell bulk cany, such as Meijers , Fresh Food Market and others. I call them generic M&M and they are about $6 a pound cheaper than odering specific colored M&Ms.
    I used red and grey for Ohio State and blue and yellow for U of M for a pre game party. I made green and red for Christmas and for Cinco de Mayo I used red, green , and white candies and added a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, a popular Mexican spice. Halloween brought orange and black, or green and purple.
    The color combinations are endless. The trick is finding the colors you want. I had to buy some Reese’s pieces to find some yellow ones in a pinch!
