    Christmas Monster Cookies Recipe

    Christmas Monster Cookies Recipe

    I love baking cookies during the holiday season. I always make extras to donate to my local library cookie sale each December. This year I put a holiday twist on the classic monster cookie using red and green baking bits.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups of softened butter
    • 1 1/2 cups of white sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
    • 5 cups of all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups of oats
    • 2 bags of Christmas M&M’s MINIS Baking Bits

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
    2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
    3. Add the vanilla and eggs to the butter mixture.
    4. Beat until creamy.
    5. Combine the salt, baking soda, all-purpose flour, and oats in a separate bowl.
    6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until thoroughly combined.
    7. Fold in the M&M’s MINIS Baking Bits.
    8. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
    10. Allow to cool slightly before removing the cookies from the baking sheet.
    11. Cool thoroughly.
    12. Store in an airtight container.
