 You know what I love most about this cookie for one? I included little bits of each of these candy bars. Mmmm!

How To Make a Monster Cookie Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Stir in the beaten egg, vanilla, flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips, M and M’s, Snickers, Butterfinger and Heath bars then transfer dough to prepared baking sheet. Press evenly into a round. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve and enjoy!

Giant Cookie Recipe For One

Dough. Drool.

Find a giant scoop or just use a spoon and get it ready for the baking sheet. It’s about 1/4 cup.

Scoop your dough into the middle of your prepared baking sheet. It is going to be massive, prepare yourselves 🙂  Press the dough into an even round as shown.

It bakes into a lovely golden candy bar loaded giant cookie. Mine came out close to 8 inches. Mmm! Once it cooled, I wrapped it in parchment paper and tied with twine. Great gift for any occasion really, but really special for a birthday. Enjoy!

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    Grace says:

    I have a cousin who only likes peanut butter cookies “without the nuts”, is there any way I could make a peanut butter one?

  16. 16

    Forget ONE cookie, I’d stack these up and make a cake out of them. And I’d have a VERY happy birthday party for one! Hehe. Amazing recipe, Jenny!

    LeighL says:

    AWESOME!! Thanks! I can’t wait to make this for my (un)birthday! When it cooled, was it gooey or a crunchy middle kinda cookie?

  18. 18

    Thank you very much !!! I was looking for those kind of single cookie. Because my daughter just love them, but it can take time to bake several small cookies. I was looking for one big, without really finding the good one. I’m going to try it.

  19. 19

    What a great idea for a friend’s birthday! Although no judgement at all that you made it for yourself…I can definitely see myself doing that! It looks so good, how could you resist?!

    Rachel says:

    I have this in the oven right now! I have to test it before making one to give away right?! 😉 I didn’t know if you noticed though that you didn’t add the pudding mix in the directions. It’s in the list of ingredients but not listed in the directions. I just wanted to let you know in case you wanted to update it. 🙂

    Pete Mathis says:

    How large is the unbaked round? Need either diameter or thickness because I have no idea how much it will spread.
    Thanks
