"This cookie has a little bit of everything, except flour. It was a favorite of mine growing up and is still a hit at parties. The recipe in its original form makes a ton of cookies, so you may want to cut in half..."

"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. :-)"
"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."
"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."
"these cookies were Amazing. my family asks for them all the time, and when i do make them they are gone in the day. I usually only make half a batch, maybe thats why there gone so qucickly but still. These are my favorite kind of cookies now, they are chewy and moist and great in lunches."
"What a great cookie recipe! Very easy to mix up makes alot of cookies and are they good!!! Made them today for a Lemonade atand my Grandaughters are having on Friday I'm sure they will be a great hit if not we will have to eat them all "sigh". I sure wouldn't mind that! Thanks for posting!"
"Yummmm! This is a keeper :P"
"This recipe makes A LOT of cookies! I got tired of baking cookies so I put the dough in two 9" square pans, sprinkled peanuts on top, and baked for 30 minutes. Delicious!! :)"
"I've been making this exact recipe for years. I was going to share the recipe but I see you already beat me to it! :) Its my absolute favorite cookie to eat and to make! My version is slightly different in the measurements of the ingredients and the method of mixing, but its the same. I found that if I press down slightly on the balls of dough after I place them on the sheet they come out better. I also like to refrigerate mine between batches. Awesome cookies!"
"Made these last night - Dh wasn't too sure until the first bite. Well, no question, now! These are a keeper. I cut the recipe in half (just for the first batch) only had creamy peanut butter and 1/3 c of mini M & M's - so I added some raisons and they are Wonderful! Thank you!"
"Fantastic! I even "won" best cookie at a cookie exchange party with these! We will absolutely make this one again! I can't believe I didn't eat them all myself!"
"Wow!! My customers and family loved them!! I had a few myself too, and they were out of this world!!"
"I love this recipe!!! I use it all of the time. The only thing I do to change it sometime is make a half of a batch, this recipe makes alot of cookies. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these cookies!!!"
"This recipe got 5 stars from my other half and 3 stars from me, so an average of 4! The BF loved them because they had everything in and he said he loved the way every bite had something exciting in. Me, I thought they were a bit boring, to be honest. I know that sounds daft given the sheer number of ingredients but, to my mind, the actual cookie mixture itself was a bit plain. I divided the recipe by three and did two batches, making about 18-20 massive cookies. I overcooked the first batch slightly, but I cut the time on the second batch and they came out well. They are a nice cookie and a fun change and I don't doubt we'll be having them again (especially as I only bake for my other half anyway, not for me), so thanks for a good recipe ElenaK."
