Mama’s Monster Cookies Recipe
This Monster Cookies recipe has been handed down many generations in my family. It was a favorite in my childhood during the Holidays and now a favorite of my own children as well. This cookie is easy to make and delicious to eat and makes a large batch so you will have plenty to share.
This recipe comes together very easily with very simple ingredients.
These are incredibly easy to mix, you don’t need a mixer. You can do it by spoon or by hand. If you do make this recipe by hand -the trick is to make wide swipes in the bowl to thoroughly mix the ingredients.
You simply sprinkle and stir in the chocolate chips and M&M’s so you don’t over mix and break the pieces.
They come out perfectly round in shape if you use a cookie scoop. It’s a great way to keep your cookies consistent, especially important if giving as gifts.
