Monster cookies are one of my favorite cookies to bake and eat- they’re easy to make and so delicious! Now that holiday season is in full swing, I’ve been thinking a lot about all the yummy homemade cookies my mom made this time of year when I was a kid. She used to make a dozen varieties from scratch every year to give as gifts. Monster cookies were always one of my favorites. I love to make them with my kids since they’re so easy. There’s no rolling, cutting, sifting, or icing. Just mix, form into balls and bake. Easy and delicious, that’s my kind of cookie!
This recipe makes about four dozen cookies. You read that right! That’s 48 cookies, a whopper batch that is perfect for gift giving or a holiday party.
