*um, well, a day with nothing going on, but that defers to fun colored, chocolate stuffed cookies*
These would be your basic chocolate chip cookies, but there are a couple things that make these extra special. I added cornstarch, which guarantees soft cookies and I'm all about soft cookies. Cornstarch is the easiest way to make sure your cookies are the ones that melt in people's mouths when they take a bite. It's a cookie lifesaver! Then I used more brown sugar then white sugar. Brown sugar makes cookies thicker and chewier, and combined with the cornstarch, makes these cookies super soft on the inside. And, you don't have to chill the dough to get these thick and chewy! The butter is only softened, not melted, and the brown sugar and cornstarch finish the job.
Also, these are packed, I mean packed, with sprinkles and MnMs. The sprinkles make these colorful and eye catching. Sprinkles can make any dessert party worthy! MnMs keep people coming back for seconds. I used mini MnMs so that there would be chocolate throughout the whole cookie. You get sprinkles and chocolate in every bite, no, make that nibble! I did make these a little smaller than the average cookie, but we all know that just makes them cuter and lets you eat more than one. Just saying. Does anything say happy like two cookies instead of one? I don't think so! :)
