Monster cookies are popular in some Old Order Amish settlements. Monster cookies are just a good ol' gooey chocolately, peanut buttery cookie. M&Ms are part of the mix, adding a splash of color to the batter and the cookie. Of course these are a favorite among children, they don't last long in any household. So if you are looking for a cookie that is a piece of cake to make and just as good to eat, give Monster Cookies a try! I often see monster cookies for sale at Amish-owned bakeries. The Amish Cook first shared the Monster Cookie recipe years ago around Halloween, but I think the cookie really get their name from their monster size and monster taste!
