Peanut Butter M&M Monster Cookies
Hello Easter monster cookies!
Monster cookies are just too fun.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an adult or kid, everyone’s eyes get big knowing that get to eat a monstrous cookie.
And eating 1 monster cookie seems way healthier in my brain than eating 4-5 regular cookies.
They are a few guidelines to making monster cookies..
1. Don’t try to fit 8 cookies on one pan, unless you want one giant pan cookie. I recommend baking 2-3 cookies on a sheet at a time. I realize this isn’t as efficient as making a whole pan of regular cookies, but monster cookies are special and need special treatment.
2. Form your dough ball and put in on the sheet to bake, and it will expand to the size of Texas. It takes a little practice to figure out how large your dough ball should be to get the right size of monster cookie.
3. Once your cookies are done baking, leave them on the baking sheet on top of a cooling rack for at least 12 minutes. Patience is key here otherwise you’re monster cookies will crumble because they won’t be firm enough to move.
4. Use multiple cookie sheets so you can bake some more while you’re waiting for the others to cool on their cookie sheet.
Keep this recipe handy! You can easily switch the candy or item that you put on top of the cookies for seasonal holidays. For example, for Halloween we made Reese’s Pieces Monster Cookies because the colors fit nicely!
I sure hope the Easter bunny brings these to my house!
