The Secret to Perfect Monster Cookies

The Monster Cookie,
 
The Favored of all cookies,
and it's not just because of the miniature m&m's that these cookies are so loved by all.
Their flavor is superior. End of story.
Now these cookies aren't exactly fool proof.
Maybe you have tried these cookies and they just haven't turned out right.
The secret is in the Peanut butter.... Jiff Peanut butter, some other brands are too dry and your cookies will be dry lumps.
 
 
 
So here we go:
1.5 cups Jiff peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
Whip until light and creamy, add:
1tsp. vanilla extract
2tsp.baking soda
3.5 cups quick cooking oats (not rolled oats)
1 cup chocolate chips (milk or semi sweet)
1 cup mini m&m's
 
Dip 2 cookies and bake them, if they are too flat add 1/2 cup more oats and try again.
You can never take oats out of a recipe that's why I always error on the side of 'not enough oats'

When I would make these at home with my mom I asked her why the cookies are called Monster cookies.. She told me that because she always had to make a monster size batch of these cookies, therefore they were called Monster cookies.
