I couldn't pass up the spring mix m&m's at Target today and decided to turn them into monster cookies tonight. I combined a couple different recipes and ended up with perfectly chewy cookies filled with all sorts of goodies.
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, and m&m's (each)
Heat oven to 350°F. Beat butter and sugars on medium speed in an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Add oats and mix well. Scrape down bowl and then add peanut butter and mix until combined. Finally, add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips and m&m's.
Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
