My husband says these cookies "are OFF THE HOOK!!" I however think there good. A cookie is a cookie, how can you go wrong? (Unless you put raisins in them) I took Paula Deans and The Pioneer Womans recipe of the monster cookie and combined them similar to another review. Besides a few other things I replaced the raisins (YUCK!) for pecans (YUMMM!)
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 c granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 c. multi-colored chocolate candies
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/4-1/2 c. pecans, optional (or raisins)
2 tsp baking soda
3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
2 c. Rice Krispies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake. Let stand for about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool. When cool, store in large resealable plastic bags.
