The cookies are great, but the recipe is a little weak. Anyone who has made cookies before should be able to stumble through it, but I had to rewrite it so my kids could follow along. And why add the oats by hand? Do a half batch and let the mixer do the work. Watch out, these cookies can go from perfect to burnt in about a minute.

Made these this afternoon and they came out fantastic! Very easy to make too. I used my ice cream scoop to scoop the dough and ended up with exactly 60 cookies. I baked them for 11 minutes and let then cool for about 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. They came out nice and chewy. Thanks for the recipe I know I will be making these again soon.

Good cookie but be warned if you make the whole recipe you will have lots of cookies! I made some into balls and froze them to bake at a later date.

Very forgiving recipe! I didn't have a full cup of butter so added some cream cheese. I skipped on the white sugar since there was enough sweet stuff in it already. I needed 10 cups of oatmeal to make a happy texture for rolling (I used a combo of regular and quick oats since it didn't specify) and for the candy I used a mix of Skor bits, white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I made my cookies quite a bit smaller since my ice cream scoop is huge lol so only needed to bake them about 9 minutes. Overall an interesting tasty cookie!

My son and all his fraternity brothers liked this cookie a lot. I didn't have any M&Ms, so I used raisins and craisins with the chocolate chips. They were good that way and more nutritious. The cookies held their shape well and had a nice texture.

It's pretty warm outside today to be heating the oven and baking a big batch of cookies, but I had an urge! Turns out it was worth it. This must be a very 'forgiving, mix and match' recipe as I traded out ingredients as to what was in my pantry and they came out 'veddy-veddy tasty indeed'! For starters, I halved the recipe (in case they were awful) I used Jif creamy HONEY peanut butter, about 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, a 1/2 cup BLEND of butterscotch chips, cherry flavored chips, and premium white choc chips! The first batch I made as written and the cookies were huge! Like 5-6" in diameter! They took 12 minutes in total. I thought they were a tad too big though, so I halved the amount of 'dough' in the ice cream scooper and continued on. Most reviewers are right. 10 minutes at this size is perfect! Then after they cool for about 10 more minutes...they are set just right. Addictive, tasty and a great snack cookie~also not alot of trouble either. :-)

These cookies - after some test runs - came out tasty. I had terrible time with the batter - the cookies kept burning. I eventually got the cookies to work by making very large cookies and baking for only 10 minutes. They were a lot of trouble, and I don't think they were as wonderful as I was expecting. It was a fun try, though. Thanks for the recipe.

I took these to my husband's company picnic, and everyone loved them. I loved that they made so many and were so easy to put together. The only thing that I did different was that I did not add the m&m's.

Just made these with my son and daughter. The only change we made is that we used peanut butter chips along with the chocolate chips. Thses turned out great. We only baked 1/2 the dough and still have 1/2 for fresh cookies later next week. THis was an awesome recipe I like the large amount of dough and how easy it was to make.
