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!

Thank-you for posting this recipe! I've made these in the past from a hand written note from a friend and could not find it. These are a good 'almost from scratch'' cookie . I use the mini M&Ms and add chopped pecans or walnts as well. Very quick and easy.

I had to have something quick to take to a family reunion. I knew I couldn't compete with my mil's five flavor pound cake, so my husband suggested cookies. This recipe caught my eye and I had both kinds of cookie mix on hand. I didn't make them "monster-sized" but I did get 3 dozen with my regular cookie scoop. I followed the recipe but I did add 2 teaspoons of vanilla to the batter. I came home with only 2 cookies so I think they were a hit! Thanks for a great recipe
