Reese’s Monster Cookies

I love Reese’s, and I love Monster Cookies. How could these two not team up?!?

Monster Cookies are, by far, one of my favorite treats of all time. My Grandma made them for every family event for as long as I can remember, and the nostalgia adds tremendously to the taste of these cookies for me.

Last year I went a little crazy post Monster Cookie recipes. Starting with the original recipe, of course.

and Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream.


Seriously. 2012 was all about the Monster Cookies in a BIG way. And since 2013 is rapidly becoming the year of Reese’s, it seems incredibly apropo to combine the two into one, great Reese’s Monster Cookie recipe! I have a feeling you are going to loooooove these cookies.

    Your “monster cookie” recipe looks phenoms! The dough might not make it into the oven it looks so amazing… I’m curious about the texture are they soft and chewy OR crunchy and hard?

    • Ashton posted on June 29, 2013 at 9:27 am (#)

      They’re a little crunchy on the edges and chewy in the center!

    • dana posted on July 7, 2013 at 2:01 am (#)

      Yay I’m a totes a cookie monster these will be poifect!

  22. Sam posted on July 19, 2013 at 12:28 am (#)

    These look amazing and will be making them this weekend! I do have a question… the oats, are they instant or regular? What specific brand do you use? Thanks in advance and can’t wait to enjoy these!

    • Ashton posted on July 20, 2013 at 3:13 pm (#)

      They’re old fashioned (regular?) oats. I just buy the Quaker brand! But my mom uses Great Value in her baking, and they always turn out great!

    These look SO AWESOME! Thanks for sharing!
