Mini Monster Cookies

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.

  1. I love oatmeal cookies, especially with so much goodness added it. The texture looks perfect!

    Monster Cookies are a big tradition in our family. My Grandmother (who lived in the cottage where we now have our house) made dozens each summer. She kept them in a huge tupperware container on top of the dryer, which was connected to the bathroom. There were many times that we would have to urgently “go to the bathroom” during the course of our visits. Our tradition is to make them big and press 3 M&Ms into the top of each cookie (not mixed into the dough). My all-time favorite combination is green + yellow + orange. None of the brown ones get put on top because they look too much like a chocolate chip and all they kids think they got gipped on M&Ms. Monster Cookies are the best!
