Oh wow, wow, wow, wow. I am so excited to share this recipe with you!!!!

Recently, I was the recipient of a delicious {and very heart warming} meal ministry….the sender gave me a dessert labeled “Monster Cookies”{It was a secret recipe- bummer!}.

Well, I knew I couldn’t live a day without trying to figure out how to recreate these amazing little masterpieces of awesomeness.

So, here is my best effort- boy, are these gooooooooood.

A sweet friend of mine came over {who will remain nameless -she made me promise} after I made these and had 3..or 4? Oh, who counted? I could have eaten the entire plate! haha!

Anyways- make these, they’re good…really, really good. I love them. Make them for me.
