So today we have our friend Pam on the blog today sharing her wonderful recipe for Monster Cookies! Pam is always making some really great food (trust us, we’ve been eating them!) so be sure to check out the recipe below!
- 3 eggs
- 1¼ cups packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
- 1 stick butter, softened
- ½ cup multi-colored chocolate candies
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- ¼ cup raisins, optional
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 4½ cups rice crispies and quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant) split amounts among these 2 ingredients as you wish.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Let stand for about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool. When cool, store in large resealable plastic bags.
note: you may substitute different items in this recipe for instance we add butterscotch chips and white chocolate chips as well.
