Monster Cookies

My kids absolutely LOVE these cookies!
This is a great recipe to have your kiddos help you make.
They are very easy to make and pretty much fail-proof.
A few things, I have used both creamy and crunchy Peanut butter for this recipe and both turned out great. The Crunchy is going to give you more of a chunky and crunchy cookie. Also, I always use the quick rolled oats when baking cookies, they will be more chewy this way.
The cookies might look slightly underdone when you take out and press the M&M's in them, but as they cool they will be perfectly soft and chewy.
I have made these for church bake sales, and they are always a huge it!
These Monster cookies are Super fun to make and eat.
