I had my first Monster Cookie at the snack bar at Target recently and came home determined to find a comparable recipe. This recipe is perfect! It's easy and produced cookies that tasted very similar to the ones at Target. Only thing I did differently is add about 1/2 cup of cocktail peanuts (should've added more) and about 1/2 cup of Coconut (probably could've done with out it though). Very tasty...crunchy yet moist and chewey. I brought some to a gathering at my sister's and they were gobbled right up!

Unable to find a Monster Cookie recipe that wasn't too crispy or totally oatmeal based, I gave this recipe a go and it turned out great. This also does well as a base recipe...feel free to add in as many "optionals" as you like. I especially like to add chopped honey roasted peanuts or toffee peanuts. These cookies are great "mailers", too!

I used 1 1/2 cups of reese's peices and a half cup of m & ms. They were sooooo good.

SO GOOD!! We put some Reece's pieces in as well, I am sure peanut butter M&Ms are worth a try too, but these were a bit hit just following the recipe... and so easy

I usually never use mixes for cookies, but these turned out awesome! They are super easy and very chocolaty. I used dark chocolate m&m's and only 1 cup of them and they still have plenty of chocolate.
