Recipe: Valentine's Day Monster Cookies


My sorority house mom in college would make us these amazing cookies for special occasions.  She gave us the recipe before we graduated and I've been making them for my family ever since.  They can be made for any holiday- simply buy the festive holiday M&Ms {I'm partial to the Valentine's Day and Easter M&Ms for no reason other than the pretty colors}!


Ingredients: 3 eggs, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon white corn syrup, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1 stick of melted butter, 1.5 cups of peanut butter, 4.5 cups of oatmeal and 1 cup of M&Ms.


Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir until mixed.  Bake on parchment paper at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool before serving.  Enjoy!


Happy Valentine's Day to you all! I hope you have a day filled with lots of love! My hubby took me on a surprise Valentine's vacation this past weekend to Scottsdale- photos coming up in my next post!  Until then check out my Closet Clean Out Sale here. XOXO

Looking forward to reading where you guys went in Scottsdale! My hubbie plays baseball for the Diamondbacks, so we're living here in Scottsdale for Spring Training! I need some great places to go eat/drink!

These cookies look perfect for the valentine's holiday. It would have been nice to find them earlier. I like giving cookie gifts to friends and co-workers on holidays. I made heart shaped sugar cookies. I actually didn't know they made valetines m&ms. I like the colours too.

I hope you enjoyed your day today

Baking with oatmeal is so tricky. You have to be careful not to leave them in too long or they'll turn to bricks!

The cookies featured here look yummy!
