Easy to make Monster Cookies

This recipe is simple to make and it’s even great for beginner bakers.  This cookie batter comes together in a matter of minutes without a whole lot of work.

To make these cookies even easier to make, I use silicone mats for non-stick and easy cleanup.  One of my favorite tools when making cookies is my cookie scoop.  It makes perfectly sized cookies and they are come out the same!

This recipe comes together very easily with very simple ingredients.

These are incredibly easy to mix, you don’t need a mixer.  I use one because it’s quicker but it’s not necessary. 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.
