Monster Cookies

Comment on this recipe

I received this recipe from a friend from Des Moines several years ago. The recipe makes eight dozen cookies, but may be cut in half.

Ingredients

2 pounds brown sugar
4 cups white sugar
1 pound softened margarine (I use 1/2 butter)
12 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla
3 teaspoons white Karo syrup
8 teaspoons soda
3 pounds peanut butter, smooth or chunky
18 cups oatmeal, regular
1 pound chocolate chips
1 pound M&M candies
1 package Heath chips
4 cups Rice Krispies

Instructions

Mix all ingredients in order listed. Drop by soup spoon-size onto ungreased sheets. Bake 12 minutes at 350 degrees or less, as you need to watch first batch so they do not get too brown. Remove from the oven and let cookies set for one minute. Then remove from pan. I start to mix these together with the electric mixer and then turn into an old large enamel bowl because it is such a large batch to mix together. They make a large amount and take a lot of time but they are delicious!
