  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter using an electric mixer on a medium-high speed. Add the sugars, molasses, and vanilla, one at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl before each addition. Adjust your mixer to a medium speed. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until thoroughly blended.
  • Adjust your mixer to a low speed. Slowly add the flour mixture until lightly blended. Fold in the chocolate morsels and M&Ms.
