Do you ever search and search for a recipe, try it only to be disappointed? I’ve done that several times. Well. My search for the perfect Monster Cookie is completely and totally over. I found the best. The funny thing is that I wasn’t even searching for it.
Remember we participated in the Antiques in the Park over Labor Day weekend? Well the people who were set up next to us had shared with us their homemade Monster Cookies. Kelli and I were so amazed. They were so chewy and completely delicious. To die for…SO-SO good.

Another thing I love about this recipe is that it makes a normal batch of cookies. I’ve always been frustrated with the recipes that call for a dozen eggs, etc. and I can’t fit the ingredients in the mixer. This one has normal amounts…granted it doesn’t make as many but for me, that’s okay.
