M&M’s® Coffee Nut Flavor
2 1/2 -3 C. Chocolate Ice Cream
1/2 C. Cool Whip
1 C. Coffee of any sort (Mine was pre-packaged)
1 Packet of Hot Chocolate Mix (Optional)
Dash of Milk - Optional
FOR THE COOKIES...
Pre Made or Home Made Chocolate Chip Cookies
Melting Chocolate + Brush To Spread It Onto Cookies
These are so easy! Simply melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave until smooth. Carefully brush chocolate onto half of the front of each cookie.
In a zip top bag, use a rolling pin to crunch up some of the M&M’s® Coffee Flavor candies. Top half of your cookies with M&M’s® Coffee Nut candy pieces, or chocolate sprinkles. They stick super well to the chocolate. Let cool, and eat separately, or add to your milkshake.

Blend ice cream, peanut butter, milk, honey, and Cool Whip together until smooth. Add M&M’s® Honey Nut Flavor either as whole pieces, or crushed up into smaller pieces. Stir with a spoon.
Pour into a large glass, and top with whipped cream, yellow sprinkles, and crushed up M&M’s® Honey Nut.
This one wound up being my absolute favorite!! Enjoy!!
THE CHILI CHOCO SHAKE - INSPIRED BY M&M’s® CHILI NUT
M&M’s® Chili Nut
3 C. Chocolate Ice Cream
1 C. Milk
Red Chilis For Garnish - Optional
Luckily I got some of the last of the new flavor M&Ms at Walmart! Looks like just about everyone in town wanted a piece of the voting action!
My local stores were almost sold out, but I found them near the front of the store by the registers.
Mix together chocolate ice cream, milk, and Cool Whip until smooth. Feel free to add a dash of Cayenne pepper for some heat if you want. Also, add some M&M’s® Chili Nut candies, and mix with a spoon.
Pour the mixture into a jar, and top with whipped cream, M&M’s® Chili Nut candies, and red sprinkles.
To create a fun garnish, take two red chilis (I used ones that weren't spicy, because these candies have some heat), and poke holes in them to make room for the straw to pass through. Love how these turned out!
Thanks so much for checking out these fun recipes, inspired by M&M’s® new flavors!
