Nutella Monster Cookies from
Monster Cookies.
If I could sum up this blog in 2012 with one dessert, it would be Monster Cookies.
I posted the recipe for the classic cookie in December last year– it’s our family’s favorite Christmas time cookie. It wasn’t a big deal. Most people have the recipe. Mostly I just wanted it on my blog for easy personal access.
The Monster Cookie Dough Dip happened in January.
It was sort of an accident. I almost didn’t post it (the pictures are hideous).
ย And that’s when the Monster Cookie thing got out of control.
People liked the dip. A lot.
And I was addicted to seeing people say they liked the dip.
Really addicted.

It’s been quite the peanut butter and M&M sugar rush around here.
I’ve been dying to try Monster Cookies with Nutella, but I felt like the Crazy Monster Cookie Lady.
So I’ve been trying to take a break.
From the Monster Cookies.
Which was, clearly, some kind of a joke.
So I’m back with another Monster Cookie recipe ๐Ÿ™‚
And, I must say, it’s my favorite so far.
I’ll be hard pressed to ever go back to peanut butter again!
Bold words, I know… but I tell no lies here.

  • Note the adjusted temperature and time from the classic monster cookie recipe. My first batch burned pretty easily– but after the adjustments, they were just fine.
  • I thought it helped to have the dough chilled a little bit.
