For the first time ever, Rob and I ran out of candy on Halloween! 250 candy bars gone by 730! I had to work until 7, so Rob was solo! No leftover candy meant I needed to go buy candy today to bake with. I chose an easy monster cookie stuffed with mini panut butter cups and mini peanut butter Snickers. I actually stuffed 2 candies in each cookie. 😋 The recipe is from Betty Crocker and uses 2 of her cookie mixes.
Ingredients – 17.5 oz peanut butter cookie mix, 17.5 oz chcolate chip cookie mix, 1/ 1/2 cups quick oats (uncooked), 3 eggs, 1 cup butter (softened), 2 cups m&Ms, candies
Directions – preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheets with nonstick baking liners. Combine cookie mixes, oats, eggs and butter (I needed to use a mixer).
Scoop out 1/4 cup cookie dough.
Place half on the cookie sheet.
Top with candy.
Place other half of dough on top and cover candy completely.
Stagger 8 or 9 cookies to a sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
Cool completely. Store in covered container.
