Monster cookies are a fan-favorite for a reason! They're delicious and bursting with candy goodness.
Monster cookies have always been a bake sale favorite, and it's easy to see why. These delicious cookies are packed full of different candies for a dessert that is the ultimate indulgence. We also love that the oats and peanut butter lend these cookies a delicious chewy texture and salty peanut flavor. They are hearty enough to stand up to being dunked in a glass of milk, but we also think they're great with coffee or tea. No matter how you choose to enjoy these cookies, we think you're in for a pretty great snack time!
From the Chef: "If you can’t quite decide what you’re in the mood for, these Monster Cookies have you covered. With peanut butter, oats, M&M’s, and chocolate chips, they’re a dream dessert for the indecisive baker . . . or when you’re looking to use up some leftover Halloween candy." - Addie Gundry
