Monster Cookies

{They are so BIG that they need an extra big cookie bag!}

These cookies are about as close as we get to monsters in our home.

I am not sure if our children liked them because of their size or because of the name!

They are still a favorite!!

I like to keep all my scoops in one place...

Thank you Laur for the brand new SILPAT. I LOVE it!

Kabnet Wax between these cookies...since they can tend to stick together works really well. Simply put these cookies in a ZIPLOC bag and freeze until you need {WANT!} them.

Monster Cookies

6 eggs

2 cups brown sugar

1 ½ tsp. vanilla {I like 2 tsp. vanilla paste}

2 cups sugar

4 tsp. baking soda

2 sticks unsalted butter {room temp}

2 cups crunchy, salted peanut butter {16 oz. from Trader Joe’s}

10 cups oatmeal

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup M&Ms

*Combine eggs, sugars, vanilla, baking soda, butter and peanut butter in stand mixer. using the paddle attachment, STIR until all ingredients are mixed. Then put all ingredients into a MONSTER BOWL. I mean the BIGGEST, HUGEST one you have.

*Add oatmeal, chocolate chips and M&Ms.

*Use an ice cream scoop to form balls of dough. Flatten. Bake on SILPAT or baking sheet at 350 for about 12 minutes.

*Let cool on Silpat for a few minutes. Remove and let finish cooling on wire cooling rack.

*My little monsters like it when I put in more M&M's like a whole EXTRA cup!

Enjoy and be sure to share...this recipe makes about a ton!
