This is one of our favorite recipes. Our oldest son, Brady, requests these as often as I’m willing to make them. I remember one night when he was a senior in high school, he had a few of his buddies with him and they were getting ready to go to the movie theater. We have a candy drawer at our house so I told them to grab a couple things for their pockets. Instead, they stuffed monster cookies in their pockets! It was a sight that I won’t ever forget and we still laugh about it! These are a hit with everyone and the batch makes a ton. I usually keep a few out at room temperature, but I actually prefer them frozen!
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 Cups Packed Brown Sugar
- 1 Cup White Sugar
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- 1 Tsp Corn Syrup
- 2 Tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 1 1/2 Cups Peanut Butter
- 4 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats (I use Old Fashioned)
- 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 Cup M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a large bowl or mixer. Start with eggs then slowly add the remaining ingredients in order. Make sure to mix well. I almost always hand mix the chocolate chips and M&M’s in once the dough is ready. And, I always add extra chocolate chips and M&M’s! Another thing I have done before is 1/2 creamy peanut butter and 1/2 crunchy peanut butter. And, 1/2 Regular M&M’s and 1/2 Peanut M&M’s! Once the chocolate is mixed in, just scoop a golf ball size onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Once you serve these, you won’t be able to get the teenagers out of your house! That’s a bonus!
