When you go to the movies, what is your favorite snack? Mine is and always has been a box of Reese’s Pieces. The odd thing is that I really don’t like them unless I’m at the movies. Well, that is until I found these cookies! They’re awesome! I guess you could call them a fall cookie because of their colors, but honestly? I call them an “anytime I’m craving them and it happens to be midnight” cookie. No matter what you call them though, these Reese’s Pieces Monster Cookies are sure to become a new favorite for your entire family!

Grab your cookie sheets and head to the kitchen! This Reeses Pieces Monster Cookie recipe is calling you! Sweet, peanut buttery and oh so very good!

Reeses Pieces Monster Cookie Recipe

Really, I can’t stress how good these cookies are. They’re kind of like a cross between a chocolate chip cookie and a peanut butter cookie mixed with a oatmeal raisin cookie. Try not to eat the dough. It might be good, but you’ll enjoy these more if you actually bake them. Don’t ask me how I know that.

 

You Will Need:

  • 1 1/2 C. peanut, creamy or chunky (I used chunky for this particular recipe)
  • 1 C. sugar
  • 1 C. brown sugar, packed
  • 1 stick of butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 1/2 C. uncooked oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 C. chocolate chips
  • 1 C. Reese Pieces + extra to press on top of the cookies prior to baking

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees then combine the peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, baking soda and eggs in a large mixing bowl.

Next, add the oatmeal one cup at a time. Make sure that you mix well after each cup. By the time you get them all in there, your dough will be pretty stiff so just keep that in mind. I love to mix things by hand, but I make sure to use my hand mixer for this recipe since this dough gets so stiff.  Once the oats are added, add in the 1 cup of chocolate chips and the 1 cup of Reese’s Pieces and mix well. You’ll want to try and get them pretty evenly mixed in.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto your cookie sheets about 2-3″ a part and bake for 9-13 minutes. If you want to keep your sheets cleaner, cover them with parchment paper before you drop the cookie dough on them. This way you can slide the paper off and reuse the sheet right away. Be very careful not to overbake these. They will still be soft when you pull them out of the oven so you might be tempted to.
