Monster Cookies

This is a fantastic cookie all year round, but I love it so much that I wanted to post it for Halloween. Not only does it have a Monstrous name, but with Halloween M&M's, it looks perfect for your Halloween party, or even for a fun treat! 

Here is a recipe for a small batch, though the recipe for a large batch is available here.

1 stick butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. soda
1 3/4 c. flour
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. quick oatmeal
1/4 lb. chocolate chips
1/4 lb. M&M'S® (plain)

Mix in a bowl in the order given. Drop by large tablespoon or ice cream scoop and flatten. Bake for 12 minutes at 350. Don't over bake. 

Also, keep in mind that because of the myriad of ingredients, including the oatmeal, this batter will seem extremely dry and hard to mix. Do NOT water down.
