Monster Cookies

I don’t know why, but it feels like I haven’t posted in ages. In reality it’s only been about a week! My week has been so stressful, so one day feels like a year. Aside from that I have been super busy with mountains of work. But I had to carve out sometime to bake because baking is the ultimate stress reliever for me. As most of you know; I face a cookie dilemma: I can’t bake chocolate chip cookies. My CCC’s taste bland, but I can make monster cookies. Monster cookies are essentially cookies that you can put anything, and everything in. Chocolate chips, m&ms, butterscotch, toffee bits, raisins, nuts, and more. I decided to make mine with the two things I love most: m&ms an chocolate chips. However, you can put whatever your heart desires. Now on to the recipe.

  1. Last week was very stressful. I usually deal with stress by writing it down or talking through it with my sister. And my favorite cookie is Nestlé chocolate chip cookies.
