Christmas Monster Cookies

This recipe for Christmas Monster Cookies uses peanut butter cookie mix, sugar cookie mix, oats, and festive M&M's for a one-bowl batch of cookies baked up in no time!

I shared with you a version of these cookies back in August - Lunch Box Monster Cookies. And I remember thinking as I watched them disappear from the container within DAYS that these would make an awesome, super easy Christmas cookie with a few tweaks.

Sugar cookies and Christmas go together like peanut butter and chocolate, am I right?! I think everyone is searching for an awesome sugar cookie recipe this time of the year - check out my Cream Cheese Cutout Cookies post from last week for my favorite sugar cookie recipe. Though, I really wanted to come up with another, super festive cookie that is really simple for the kiddos to help with - or even bake it completely themselves. My middle little boy Wesley seems to be VERY interested in cooking these days and I *try* my best to have him help me with dinner a night or two each week. He's only 5 years old now so I don't trust him with the hot oven, but I can totally imagine in a few years just giving him the ingredients for these yummy monster cookies and having him make some great cookie gifts for his teachers. How fun!

I don't know what it is, but when Christmas time rolls around I suddenly want to buy all the red & green candies at the drugstore! I'm so tempted to snag festive bags of M&M's and Kisses - this is a great way to incorporate your favorite treats into a fun cookie!

How colorful and festive are these beauties? Keep them out on a cookie tray on your counter for crispy, crunchy cookies, or keep them in a sealed container to keep their chewy texture. These would be great in a cellophane bag with a few extra candies and a fun ribbon - makes a great teacher gift!
