Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cook: 18 mins
Additional: 10 mins
- cooking spray
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, or more as needed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup candy-coated milk chocolate pieces (such as M&M’s®), or to taste
Trace the bottom of a heart-shaped aluminum pan over parchment paper; cut along the tracing. Spray pan lightly with cooking spray and line with the heart-shaped paper.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Combine butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; beat until smooth and creamy. Add egg and vanilla; mix until batter is blended, about 50 strokes.
Whisk flour, salt, and baking soda together in a small bowl. Add flour mixture into the batter; stir until thick but spreadable, about 100 strokes. Fold in milk chocolate pieces gently. Pour batter into the prepared pan; spread evenly with a spatula, leaving a 1-inch margin from the sides.
Bake in the middle shelf of the preheated oven until the edges are golden brown and middle is set, 18 to 23 minutes. Press any remaining milk chocolate pieces into the still-warm cookie for decoration.
Let cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes; transfer to a cooling rack and remove the parchment paper.
