Monstrous Monster Cookies
It was my daughters 8th birthday Thursday, and I knew I wanted to make a couple of her favorite cookies for her family birthday party. However, I was having trouble deciding on which ones to make. The issue being, she pretty much takes after me and is quite the little cookie monster – not being the least bit discriminatory in regards to cookies. I decided on my smiley face cookies, and monster cookies.
Monster cookies are peanut butter, oatmeal & chocolate chip cookies combined. So I did not have to decide on one of those three types – when I could combine them all into one cookie. These babies are not for the faint of heart, they are a classic cookie trifecta – which my three monsters love. Now that all those difficult party planning decisions were made, and immensely enjoyed. It’s on to planning the finishing touches of her carnival themed friend party we are hosting in 2 weeks. Wish me luck!
