I recently stumbled upon this recipe and knew I was going to have to try it! Most of you have probably heard of Monster Cookies before. Many years ago a friend gave me a recipe for Monster Cookies that were made from scratch. They were very yummy, but they seemed a bit time consuming!
This recipe calls for using cookie mix that comes in a pouch plus a few more ingredients. Maybe cheating just a bit, but they were yummy and a whole lot quicker! I made the recipe exactly as it is written except for I had some Reese's Pieces on hand, so I added them too! One person who reviewed the recipe mentioned adding peanut butter chips. That sounds yummy too!
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups candy-coated milk chocolate candies
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir all ingredients except candies until soft dough forms. Stir in candies.
On ungreased cookie sheets, place about 1/4 cupfuls (very large cookies!) dough about 3 inches apart.
Bake 12 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely. Store in covered container at room temperature
*(To make 36 smaller cookies, place 2 heaping tablespoonfuls dough about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes)
These cookies are completey low in calorie and fat, NOT! But oh so yummy!
