Think of Wreck-it Ralph or Ralph Breaks the Internet and it is pretty hard to not conjure up images of sweets. As Vanellope whizzes through the tracks of Sugar Rush, every sweet treat imaginable is seen. Seeing all of those sweets reminded me of one of my favorite treats growing up.

My grandparents built a boat when my mother and uncles were young. This boat would be driven up to the San Juan Islands and would cruise around throughout the summer. While the boat was a blast growing up, so was Grandma’s food! One of the special offerings saved only for summers on the boat were her M&M cookies. These would stay in a cookie jar near the stove on the boat. Boat trips are the only time I can remember her making them growing up.

In honor of Ralph Breaks the Internet and the sweet treats from the world of Sugar Rush, I thought I would share her recipe with you today. Give it a shot and let me know what you think of it! It is one of my favorite cookies and also probably one of the reasons I have such a fondness for M&Ms.
