Monster Cookies

You are in for a treat with these Easter Monster Cookies! Boy, I’m having a hard time resisting the darn Easter chocolates! Target has the best Easter candy, along with so many other items I find hard to resist. So excited for you to try my Monster Easter Cookies. These will be so great for after Easter when you ransack the kids baskets or grab the Easter Candy at 1/2 off! Completely sinful but so fun! Everything in moderation right? That’s my motto 🙂

Here’s the candy I used for my cookies. Keep in mind, you can use about any of your favorites! Sky’s the limit!

How To Make Easter Monster Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer, until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beating to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients and chopped Easter Chocolates. Beat gently until just combined.
  3. With a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet placing about 1 inch apart. Press each cookie down about 1/2 inch before baking.
  4. Bake for 10-13 minutes until golden brown. With a plastic knife, re-form cookies into a nice round shape, cleaning up any melted chocolates that may have oozed out the sides. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.

  1. Whoa, you weren’t kidding when you said you’re loving the Easter Candy! I made some M&M cookies last week with the pretty spring pastel colors but you totally have me beat and I love it! That candy assortment in your process shots – makes my heart go pitter patter 🙂

  2. Easter candy? I’m not sure I would have any candy left to put in the cookies by the time they were ready to bake…ESPECIALLY if I was using the REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER Easter candies. Why are the egg shaped REESE’S so much better than the regular? Hmmm. It remains a mystery to me. Great recipe!

    What do you mean in recipe 2 INGEDIENT???? Just want to be sure I don’t miss any chocolately goodness! YUM-o

  4. Those cookies look great! I’m an Easter candy junkie too, but I’m allergic to chocolate. Luckily there are lots of jelly beans and the like. The Reese’s Pieces Eggs are the best.

    I love the pictures with your Kitchen Aid mixers, they look so springy! I just bought Easter candy for the baskets. Do I dare get into them to make these oh so tempting cookies? Oh yes, I can always buy more.

  6. This goes on the list of recipes to make after Easter when the Easter candy goes on half price sale. 🙂 I stock up after each holiday and have fun chopping up candy and trying out recipes 🙂 Thanks!

    For some reason my local Target store didn’t have the Milky Way bunnies (bummer!), so I got some Kit Kat bunny ears instead. I also picked up some of the Easter M&Ms to add a bit of colour. =) Looking forward to making these! <3

    I made these last week and they came out really, really flat! They had an excellent taste though. I looked back at your chocolate chip cookie recipe (that I use ALL THE TIME) and noticed you didn’t use as much flour in this recipe as in your other cookie recipe. I have a feeling that might have been the problem. Will try again with your other recipe and the candy and see what happens.
