1cupbutter, softened (two sticks)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 cup of the white chocolate chips.
Roll about a tablespoon of batter and drop onto ungreased baking sheets. (Cookies will spread, so make sure you have enough space.) Gently press down the batter and add in 4-5 M&M's and 4-5 white chocolate chips to the top of the cookie.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 4 minutes and remove to wire racks to cool completely.
