M&M Monster Cookies

M&M Monster Cookies | Cooking on the Front Burner

Break time!  Grab a big glass of milk and a couple of these cookies for your afternoon snack.  These M&M Monster Cookies are sure to hit the spot - just the perfect pick-me-up!

These are my favorite go-to cookies that I've made several times this year.  The recipe is easy to make and comes out perfect every time.  NO fail!  The fall color M&M's are great for this time of year and feel free to use other colors for other holidays.

Look how loaded these are with the M&M's and chocolate chunks.  I love these about 5 minutes of the oven when the chocolate is still all melty... yum!
