Notes

  • We use quick cooking oats for this recipe.  In a pinch, old fashioned oats could be used.  You can even give them a quick buzz in the food processor to make them more like a quick oat.
  • These make a thick monster cookie, more like a bakery-style monster cookie.
  • Chocolate chips or a combination of chocolate chips and candy can be used.
  • Use creamy or crunchy peanut butter.
  • Barbara used a combination of Twix, Milky Ways, Dove Chocolates and M&Ms.  You could use any chocolate-based candy you have on hand.
  • If you use a caramel centered candy, be sure the candy pieces are not peaking out of the dough before baking. If it is, you risk caramel spilling out and hardening.
  • Remove these from the pan after a few minutes of cooling to prevent them from sticking.
