2. Take the wrapper off the cookie dough. Put the dough on the cutting board and slice it 1 inch thick. Insert a pop stick into the bottom of the cookie shoving it in half way into the cookie. Cover the top of each cookie with the M&M's: press them lightly into the dough. Put the cookies far enough apart so they have room to spread.
4. Remove cookies from the oven using an oven mitt. Let them cool on a wire rack. Watch out: Do not try to pick the cookies up off the cookie sheet until they cool or the stick will come out. After the cookies are cooled a little bit, you can use the spatula to carefully remove the cookies from the pan and put them on the wire racks to cool completely.
