Monster Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies with M&M's

Yum
Here's another cookie/cake recipe that you can put out as a Halloween treat.  These monster chocolate peanut butter cookies were a big hit and the kids loved helping add the M&Ms.

                                      Ingredients:
1 box devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 bag of your favorite M&Ms







Directions:

Mix all the ingredients (except the M&Ms) together to make the cookie batter.





Make large golf size balls (for monster size cookies) and place on a greased cookie sheet.






Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes.  Then place M&Ms on cookie and press in.  Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet. 







Makes about 12-15 large cookies.  Enjoy.

  2. LOVE these Ramona! I recently made chocolate mint cookies with a baking group..but honestly..I'm not a huge fan of mint cookies! I would much rather have a chocolate cookie with sweet crunchy candy! Now these are more my style!

  20. What a great idea using devil's food cake mix for cookies. I would never thought about that. And the M&M’s are just the bit of extra this cookie needs.
