Although Claudia’s chocolate chip cookies were the ultimate staple dessert in our house while growing up, monster cookies were a close second. As you can see in the picture to the right, I was quite a fan of the cookie dough while baking. I’m not entirely sure where I got the idea that eating raw cookie dough was a good idea. I blame my Dad. After all, he was always the one who would say “Jaime, can you make me some cookies”.  I was 5.  All I knew in the end was that cookie dough tasted amazing, and so do these easy Monster Cookies.

You will need:

4 eggs

1-2/3 cups brown sugar

1-1/3 cups white sugar

1 tsp. vanilla (I put a tad more because the chefs on the Food Network always tell me to)

1 tsp. corn syrup

2-2/3 tsp. baking soda

2/3 cup butter

2 cups smooth peanut butter

6 cups rolled oats

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 cup Smarties

Combine the eggs, brown & white sugar, baking soda, corn syrup and delicious vanilla in a bowl.

Mix until combined.

Throw in the staple of all baking – your glorious butter.

Mix well again on high until combined.

That butter definitely does make a huge difference.

Enter the fun butter of the peanut variety. Mix well!

Next, throw in your 6-cups of rolled oats. Healthy!

This is where the fun begins. Not-so-healthy.

Fold in your chocolate and butterscotch chips along with your Smarties.

Now who wouldn’t want to eat that cookie dough?!

Claudia had to hold back the 5-year-old Jaime at this step.

I figured since I wasn’t allowed to eat the cookie dough I might as well throw in extra Smarties rather than throw a fit for good measure.

Drop cookie dough by tablespoon onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 15 minutes.

Delicious Ukrainian Monster Cookie!

    I miss Claudia’s Monster Cookies. I’ve tried making them, but they just don’t turn out as good.

    I love your blog and recipes so much! I am an Albertan, born and raised for 32 years but, I’ve lived in Texas for 15 years now and I enjoy seeing the exclusively Canadian ingredients. I am going to make these cookies but alas, I will have to use M&M’s. Smarties here are what we Canadians call ROCKETS…you know, the ones we give out on Halloween?

      I’ve heard you can’t get Smarties in the US. You can easily substitute them for M&Ms in this recipe. Let us know how they turn out and how the Texans like them! 🙂
