Monster Cookies

I recently helped sponsor a bakesale and these cookies were one of the number one sellers. I love the fact that they seem a little healthy with the oats and peanut butter. Add a couple of teaspoons of flaxseed and it would seem even better!!! LOL

This time of year they make those special autumn colored M & M's if you can find them. And note this little trick..... if you press them into the dough after you have balled them up on the sheetpan, they will not chip and break.

1/2 cup margarine, softened
3/4 cups white sugar
1 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2cups peanut butter
3 eggs
1 teaspoons corn syrup
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups flour
1 cup candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, white sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs, two at a time, then stir in the corn syrup and vanilla. Mix in baking soda, flour, and oats until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll dough into 2 inch balls, and place 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand and place the candies in before baking.
3.Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes, before transferring to wire racks to cool completely
