Monster Cookies

I don't know why these are called Monster Cookies  Maybe because they have a monster of a good taste.  Sounds like a Halloween cookie but would be great for that Christmas Cookie Swap using the red and green Christmas M&Ms..

Monster Cookies

12oz jar creamy peanut butter
4 ½ Cups of quick oats (not instant) oatmeal
1 Cup of granulated sugar
1 ¼ Cups of packed light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 stick of butter (softened)
1 Tsp of vanilla extract
½ Tsp salt
2 Tsp baking soda
¾ cup of chocolate chips
Approx. ½ cup of M&Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (not essential, but helpful). In a large bowl combine eggs and sugars; add in salt, vanilla, butter, and peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips, baking soda, and oatmeal.

Drop in heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Pull out of oven and while cookies are still piping hot press M&Ms into tops of cookies. Remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool.

Makes about 3 dozen.
