These are the bomb!
They are loaded with mini M & Ms, oatmeal and chocolate chunks, so that pretty much make these amazing. Crispy yet chewy...ya know, just plain amazing! What I love about making monster cookies is that they make a statement, like, "Hello, I'm pretty special you know...".
Perfect for adults for after-dinner dessert, perfect for kids, perfect for anyone! Enjoy!
Makes about 2 dozen monster cookies. I use a large ice cream scoop.
4 sticks of softened butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
2 cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
3 cups flour
2-3 bags mini M&Ms (the 3rd bag is an extra bag for topping)
1 bag of chocolate semi-sweet chocolate chunks
Beat the butter and sugars until creamy
add eggs and beat one at a time until well beat
add vanilla, mix.
Turn mixer off and add all the dry ingredients. Mix until well incorporated but do not over mix. Add candies and chocolate chunks, stir until all mixed in evenly.
Scoop onto large baking sheet (about 6 cookie dough balls) and press slightly with your palm. I like to press on a ton of extra M&Ms to give it that, "wow" appeal!
bake-off for 8 minutes or until lightly golden brown. I like to keep mine on the cookie sheet out of the oven for a bit for carry-over baking. Cool onto cooling sheets and viola! Best cookie of your life!
