Got some leftover Halloween M & Ms to unload?  Monster cookies are a great way to get rid of them. If you’re like me, you get rid of them by eating them:)  But if you have more willpower and more M & Ms than I have, monster cookies are a great way to make use of the colorful candy. Monster cookies are quite popular in Amish kitchens and my guess is it is because that they are an easy indulgence but not too much of an indulgence to be considered frivolous.  They are a Goldilocks indulgence: just right.  Most monster cookies use this same basic recipe.
