Monster Cookies

I always wondered why these cookies were called Monster Cookies... and now I know!  After the first bite, you cannot get enough and you attack them like a monster.  At least that was my reaction!  These cookies are peanut buttery, soft & gooey, hearty and have a little crunch from the M & M candies.  Divine.  Delish.  Yummy.  All gone!  Enjoy :)

2/3 cup butter
1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
3 eggs- beaten
5 1/2 cups oats
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips (or combination of chips of choice)
1 cup M & M candies

Melt butter and pour into a large bowl. With a wooden spoon, stir in both sugars and peanut butter.  Let cool for a few minutes and add in eggs stirring until just blended.  Stir in the baking soda, chocolate chips and M & M candies.  Add oats in one cup at a time until combined.  Let chill for a few hours or overnight in the fridge.  Preheat oven to 350.  Place balls onto a very lightly sprayed baking sheet and flatten slightly.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Do not over bake!  Let cool on sheet 3 minutes before removing.

Can you freeze this cookie dough if you didn't want to make the whole batch?

Yes, you can absolutely freeze the cookie dough. I would recommend balling it up, placing it on a cookie sheet to freeze and then placing the frozen balls in a Ziploc in the freezer. Then, you can grab a few balls if you are wanting a small treat, or a dozen if you are making them to take somewhere!
