Rainy Day Activity: Captain America and M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today was a rainy sunday. A day, I must admit, that I absolutely love. In my opinion, there is nothing better than curling up with your significant other, turning on a movie, making some yummy cookies and having a cozy evening. No worries except for just enjoying the company of each other. 
Luckily, T Money and I finally found something that we both wanted to do-- Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and M&M’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. Do you guys ever go through this as couples? Where you can't seem to agree on something at a date night. For example, one of you wants to watch a different movie or have a different treat. Does that make sense? Or is that just us? Luckily, T Money and I teamed up with #HeroesEatMMs and #Collectivebias to enjoy a lovely, fun Sunday evening together. We love our date nights because these are nights that we have often after a long week together. 

Yesterday, knowing that we wanted to have a fun Sunday evening, Tanner and I headed to Walmart to pick up some yummy M&Ms and Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. 
We stopped by the Retailment Event at Walmart that had some yummy yogurt and characters from Captain America. 






We found the M&Ms in the candy/snacks section of Walmart. Captain America was in the movie section in the back. 


Today, I came home and started making these cookies. 



First, I made the chocolate chip cookie dough. 
This is the recipe that I used that I sort of made up on the spot : 

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons half and half
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Half bag of Chocolate Chips 

To prepare the cookie dough, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla, salt, and half and half. Stir in the flour until incorporated. Pour in chocolate chips. Along with the chocolate chips, I included the M&M's in the dough to add a delicious taste. 

Wah la! These delicious cookies were made! 
We turned on our movie, ate this cookies and enjoyed a fantastic evening! 





Nothing better than a relaxing, rainy Sunday evening with a cute husband.
