These are so yummy, thank you! It is a good way to use up eggnog. I did not have any M&M’s so I used white chocolate chips and everyone still raved about them. I think even regular chocolate chips or even plain would be just as good.I will add them to my recipe box for yummy cookies to bake during the holidays. Thank you again!
