Recipe: Monster Cookies

For my daughter’s 5th b’day treats at school I wanted to bring something other than cupcakes. I came across this Monster Cooke Recipe from Taste of Home and it turned out GREAT! I used choc. chips instead of M&M’s (what I had on hand) and didn’t add the peanuts (didn’t have them). The cookies were chewy and still had a crispness to them (the perfect combo). I’m looking forward to making them with M&M’s and other add-ons.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup M&M’s
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream peanut butter, butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add baking soda and vanilla. Add oats, M&M’s, butterscotch chips and peanuts; let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in flour (the dough will be crumbly).
  • Shape 1/4 cupfuls into balls. Place on greased baking sheets, about nine cookies on each sheet. Gently flatten cookies. Bake at 325° for 15-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.
