Monster Cookies

Click here for the free printable cellphane bag tags.   I love Monster Cookies at Christmas time. 
I think it is because my aunt would send us these cookies in the mail for the holidays.   I use the big scoop from Pampered Chef ... their scoops are the best!!!!

1 dozen eggs
2 Cups (4sticks) margarine or butter, softened
2 pounds brown sugar
4 cups sugar
1/4 Cup vanilla extract
4(12oz) jars peanut butter
8 teaspoon baking soda
18 Cups quick-cooking oats
2 2/3 Cups chocolate chips
1 pound chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
1 pound M&M's chocolate candies

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Beat butter, sugars, vanilla, peanut butter and eggs together
Add the baking soda and oatmeal, one cup at a time. Last, add the chocolate chips, M&M's and nuts (optional).  I usually cut the recipe in half but today I made the whole recipe and it is hard work.  Bake for 8 to 14 minutes.  Keep checking.  


  1. Rhonda,
    Hi! I love Monster cookies but haven't gotten a recipe for them yet. Yours sound really good can't wait to try them.

    1. Patricia~ I think you will love them. I usually cut the recipe in half because making the full recipe takes a big sauce pan and 2 big bowls. Unless you have a GIANT bowl or sauce pan. I have made thing with crushed oreo cookies also.
