{recipe & pic from} French Knots

1 cup of butter
2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of M&M's for topping2 tablespoons sugar - for rolling the dough in!

Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and cocoa. Thedough will be very thick and sticky. Form into balls and roll in (2T.) sugar. Add M&M.

Cook at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. If you don't want to cook all the cookies at once, the dough is really easy to freeze.

Since M&M's are made in all colors for every holiday this recipe can be used throughout the year to sweeten up the holiday season.
