1. Giant Monster Cookies

Monster cookies are another name for kitchen sink cookies, and Taste of Home‘s version of the dessert is part peanut butter, part oatmeal cookie with plenty of chocolate. It yields about 2½ dozen cookies.


  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • ⅔ cup butter, softened
  • 1⅓ cups sugar
  • 1⅓ cups packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • 6 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate M&M’s

Directions: In a large bowl, cream the peanut butter, butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in the eggs, baking soda, vanilla, and corn syrup. Add oats and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and M&M’s. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Drop by ¼ cupfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
