Flower Bites Ingredients
-M&Ms: You will need 1 ½ cups of pastel-colored M&Ms for the flowers on these cookie bites. I recommend buying the sharing-sized bag or party-sized bag so that there is more than enough M&Ms for all of your flower needs. This also allows you extra M&Ms to “sample” throughout the process.
-White Chocolate Chips: You will want 1 cup of white chocolate chips to melt down and adhere the M&Ms on top of the cookies. You can also swap out the chocolate for white vanilla frosting instead, this is great for a no-bake recipe version.
-Mini Cookies: You will need 45 mini chocolate chip cookies. You can find mini chocolate cookies in the bulk section of your grocery store, Chips Ahoy or store-brand versions of these cookies are ideal.
How to Make M&M Spring Flower Cookie Bites
Preheat the oven to 375 degree F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Start by placing your mini-cookies upside down onto the prepared baking sheet.
Next, add ¼ teaspoon of white chocolate chips on top of each cookie. You only need enough chocolate to cover the cookie.
Then, place the baking sheet with the cookies into the oven for 3 minutes or until the chocolate has melted.
Once the chocolate has melted, remove the cookies from the oven and place 7 M&Ms onto the white chocolate in the shape of a flower. To do this, start by adding the first one in the center and then arranging the others into the shape of a circle around the middle one.
Be sure to let the cookies cool, at room temperature or in the fridge, to set.
Serve on a festive party tray or on a simple plate, either way they will taste delicious! Enjoy!
How to Make Flower Cookie Bites Without an Oven
If you want to make this recipe without heating up the house by turning on the oven, you can easily use your microwave instead. Simply place the chocolate chips into a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir the chocolate after 30 seconds and return to the microwave.
When the chocolate has been melted completely and is smooth, spread a small amount onto the backs of the cookies using a butter knife.
Then decorate your cookies and repeat until all of the cookies have been completed.
How long are Flower Cookie Bites good for?
These cookies should be stored in an airtight container, at room temperature, and will last for up to 2 weeks. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy these tasty mini cookies.
When to serve Spring Flower Cookies?
These flower cookies make a perfect snack all season long but they would also make a perfect gift for someone special. They would be great to serve at an Easter lunch, Mother’s Day brunch, or a wedding or baby shower too. Another great idea is to use them to decorate a cake or cupcakes!
Look at all these cute kids! Sometimes I just pinch myself with how incredibly blessed I am for having these five. FIVE. Wow. It’s a lot of work, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
