Preheat oven to 350° F and line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In another large mixing bowl, add the sugar, brown sugar, and butter and mix with a hand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
Stir in the flour mixture until fully combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips and M&Ms until evenly distributed.
Use a medium cookie scoop to portion dough onto the prepared baking sheets leaving approximately 2" between each cookie.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just set. Remove from the oven, let cool for a minute, then remove from baking sheets to cool completely.
Start with room temperature butter and eggs.If cracked M&Ms bother you, skip mixing them into the dough and instead, press them into the warm cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. Store baked cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.Dough can be portioned out, covered, and put in the freezer to fully freeze. Once frozen, move from the baking sheet to a airtight freezer bag. Frozen dough will keep up to 3 months. You can bake from frozen, as directed, adding 1-2 minutes of bake time.
