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.

    I’m like a little cookie monster so it’s only fitting that I’d love these monster easter cookies! Awesome idea! Thanks. 🙂

  2. Wendy

    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!

    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.

  4. CateyLou

    I seriously died when I saw all of the easter candy in these cookies! What a fun recipe! Your mixer is easter-themed too, love it!

  5. Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen

    I have bought numerous bags and individuals of all the easter candies at Target! I swear that store will be the death of me!! Soo much candy soo little time!

  6. Gloria @ Simply Gloria

    Oh my! I’m SO in candy heaven right now! I always have to buy extra so there’s enough for the actual recipe! (=

  7. Cookbook Queen

    My only problem with these cookies is that about half of that candy wouldn’t make it to the cookies…because someone would eat them.

    Like me. maybe. ooops.

  8. Julie @ Table for Two

    these look fantastic, Jenny! I saw your Vine while you were making these – haha that Snickers bar was trying to get away from ya! i love all the candies in the cookies!

  9. Laura Dembowski

    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.

  10. Kim

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

  11. Brianna

    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!

  12. Amanda

    I really want to make these. But I have a feeling they would never get shared with anyone ever. 😉

  13. Aimee @ Simple Bites

    Those pretty Kitchen Aids made me smile this morning! And I wish I had a stack of cookies to fuel me for the day. xox

  14. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    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 🙂

  15. Blair Lonergan (The Seasoned Mom)

    These do look like heaven! And the perfect way to use up some of that left-over candy after Easter. 🙂
