In my house, we are all HUGE Marvel fans. My husband watched the cartoons as a child and I enjoy all of the new movies. My daughter is also a big fan of Spiderman. Whenever a new Marvel movie comes out on DVD, we like to make it a big movie night event. So, to celebrate the DVD release of Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, we decided to have a fun movie night complete with my amazing Captain America cookies made with M&Ms®. It’s a super simple recipe sugar cookie recipe that is dressed up with M&Ms® and white chocolate chips to look like Captain America’s shield!

To get all of the ingredients for my Captain America cookies, I headed to my local Walmart. I found the baking essentials for the cookies, including the white chocolate chips, in the baking aisle of the Grocery section and the M&Ms in the Candy aisle.

First I made the cookie dough. I rolled the dough in plastic wrap and allowed it to chill in the refrigerator.

Now, to get perfect circles, I just slice the dough and place them on my lined cookie sheet.While the cookies bake off in the oven, I made the vanilla frosting.

After the cookies came out of the oven, I allowed them to cool on a baking rack before frosting.

After I frosted the cookies, I added my M&Ms and white chocolate chips to make Captain America’s shield. Notice that one is different? Hubby and I had a difference of opinion on the look of the shield 🙂 We ate them while watching the movie and they were definitely a super sweet treat.
