M is for Monster Cookies

 Happy Monday!  I hope you had a GREAT weekend!  Everyone is home from school today for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!  YAY!  That automatically makes it a good Monday!

  Sooo, if you want to see how BRAVE I was this weekend. Follow this link to the 4 little Ferguson’s facebook page.   This is not for the faint of heart!  Click at your OWN risk, I had some people NOT too happy with me for posting. Gotta tell ya, that meat you buy in the store, didn’t originate in that pretty little package!  Just sayin. 🙂

On to the recipe:

  We have tried many a Monster Cookie recipe, but this one is hands down our favorite!  I found it way back in the old days, before I knew what food blogs were all about from Kitchen Scrapbook.  She was the first blog I ever followed, and she still has some of our favorite recipes!

This makes a HUGE batch! H_U_G_E!!!!  Like 200 cookies. 

  Feel free to half, or quarter it, to meet your needs.  FYI, we make a huge batch about once a year and freeze them between layers of wax paper in large Tupperware containers.  That way we are ready for:

“MO-OOOOOM! I need 3 dozen cookies for school tomorrow!”   🙂
