Kitchen Sink Christmas Cookies are sweet-and-salty, chewy-and-gooey cookies with M&M’s, chocolate chips, pretzels, marshmallows, potato chips… everything but the kitchen sink! Get the kids involved with these fun-to-make cookies!
These cookies are meant to be versatile and adaptable. While we adore this recipe as-is, it’s completely customizable. The whole idea is to make use of whatever you’ve got in the pantry (which is why they’re named kitchen sink cookies!). Mixing sweet and salty flavors just hits the spot.
2-½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
½ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup red & green M&M’s
¾ cup crushed pretzels
¾ cup mallow bits
1 cups crushed potato chips
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth using an electric hand mixer.
Add in the egg and vanilla and continue to mix until well combined.
Add in the flour mixture and mix until fully combined and dough-like.
Add in chocolate chips, M&M’s pretzels and mallow bits. Mix until all of the fixings are evenly distributed.
Lastly, add in the potato chips and mix lightly to spread the potato chips throughout.
Cover and place dough inside the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
When the dough is almost done chilling, preheat the oven to 350° F and prepare a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using a 1 inch cookie scoop, scoop dough from the bowl and roll in between the palms of your hand, creating an even and round ball. Repeat this until the dough is gone, filling each cookie sheet with 12 cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
When done, allow to cool on the pan for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
