My Favorite Monster Cookie Recipe

Monster cookies are a favorite around our house and they don’t seem to last long. There is nothing like a mug of cold milk and a few cookies to dip into it for a great bedtime snack.  They take a few minutes longer to mix up because there are so many ingredients and you need a really big container to mix them in but they are worth the extra effort.


  • 1 lb of margarine that has been sitting out and is softened
  • 2 lbs of brown sugar
  • 3 lbs of peanut butter.  You can use any kind cream, chunky or a combination of the two.

  • 4 cups of white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of vanilla.
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 8 tsps of baking soda
