Easy Monster Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website - kids and grown-up alike seem to enjoy these! ;) When you are short on time and don't want to search for ingredients - these are quick and easy to whip up! **They claim 1 hour start to finish for these cookies. As with most cookies, if properly sealed, these should be able to be made ahead and frozen! I always loved going to my Gram's freezer for the variety of cookies found there!!

I found this on the back of the Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix, and I decided to monster cookies were a much better idea. Good stuff--quick and easy--tastes homemade. Thanks for posting!
