Kitchen Sink Cookies

On my birthday, I stumbled across Hershey’s Butterscotch Chips at Sugar Fix. Ok, I actually went to Sugar Fix especially to look for them. They weren’t cheap but I have another recipe in mind for the rest of the packet that looks decadent. The pink M&M’s came from America – I bought them when I was there last December. (Anyone in the US who would like to send me more pink M&M’s let me know!)

Kitchen Sink Cookies
Adapted from recipe by Martha Stewart
Makes about 40


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 block coarsely chopped dark cooking chocolate
1 cup M&M’s
3/4 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Line baking sheets with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl with a wooden spoon or hand mixer, beat butter, sugar and brown sugar together until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Stir in vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually stir into butter mixture until well blended. Stir in oats, M&M’s, butterscotch chips and chocolate.
  4. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto trays, about 2 inches apart. Press tops down with the bottom of a glass to flatten cookies evenly. Bake until golden, about 16 to 18 minutes. (12 minutes in my oven) Cool on pan for 2 minutes. Remove from pan, and finish cooling completely on wire rack.

  1. These look so decadent. I love chocolate and butterscotch!

  2. I wish they would sell Pink M & M’s here in Australia too. They look yummy.

    • Hi Linda, they did for a while – pink and white M&M’s for the McGrath FOundation. They were discontinued a year or to ago. In the States you can get some great specialty colours alsom, like teal! You can also order them with your own message printed on them in the US.
