Mini monster Cookies, also known as, amazing little bites of chocolate-y, peanut butter goodness. If there was a substitute for therapy, sometimes I think it would be in the form of the aforementioned treat. Nothing quite says “everything will be OK” like a freshly baked cookie.
These cookies are amazing for many reasons. Of course, they are extremely delicious. Plus, their bite-sized nature allows you to share them with all of your best friends and still have some to spare. Bring them to the office, give some to your neighbor, bake them for family game night or a back-to-school bash, they are pretty much perfect anywhere in my book. (I guess, unless you have a peanut allergy…in which case, I recommend these tasty guys instead).
So, make these cookies. Why? Because they are awesome. Why else? Because they are made to share. Make ‘em, Bake ‘em, Share ‘em, and while your at it, give someone you love a hug.
