Browned butter adds an intensely rich, toasty, almost-caramelly flavor to an otherwise simple cookie. M&ms just add a whole bunch of fun!
Melt the butter in a 10 or 12″ cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once melted continue to cook the butter, stirring often, until it starts to foam. Watch carefully now, still stirring, as it starts to brown and smell toasty and fragrant.
At that point remove the pan from the heat, pour the butter into your large stand mixer bowl to cool slightly before proceeding. Don’t clean the skillet. Just let it cool as is. It is greased now and ready for the cookie dough in a bit!
Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
In your large mixer bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and salt until smooth.
Mix in the flour and baking soda until just well mixed and then stir in the chocolate chips and 1 cup of the M&M’s.
Press the dough evenly into the prepared skillet, sprinkle the top with the remaining cup of M&M’s pressing them in gently, and then place in the oven to bake for 25-35 minutes, until the cookie is just set and golden brown around the edges.
Cool and then cut into wedges and serve from the pan!
