Mini Monster Cookies {with a dash of love}

I'm not sure what has come over me, but I've been in super domesticated mode- baking up a storm. Which, by the way, is kinda a big deal over here since I generally avoid the kitchen like the plague.

It certainly can't be good for the waistline- these babies are naughty in every way. But the Valentine M&Ms needed eaten up. (Wink, wink.)

I used Paula Deen's Monster Cookie Recipe (with a few Alicia tweaks here and there). But can you really go wrong with a monster cookie? Just throw in your favorite things. Peanut butter, chocolate... or any other delicious goodness that strikes your fancy.

I love that they are mini sized. They fit perfectly in a small bag or cute jar.

Add a dash of love. And Voila!

A perfect Valentine's gift.

Unfortunately my daughter's school has a "no homemade goodies" policy and a new "no candy" valentine rule. I've never heard of such nonsense. Ugh! But these could be perfect for neighbors or friends.

These may or may not be the reason hubs abandoned his diet. :) Just sayin.

Yes, they are THAT good.

I hope you're having a wonderful week!

  1. Those look delicious!! And adorable to boot. What is up with the 'no candy/no homemeade stuff' policy?? Wow, how times have changed.

  2. How naughty of you to tempt hubby that way. Hmm no homemade goods? Probably has something to do with severe allergies in the school. Your neighbours will be very happy it was put in place. These look really good Alicia.

  3. These cookies look sinfully delicious! I cannot wait to try to make some. & I agree, a no candy policy is insane! I can understand the no homemade rule, but no candy is taking it too far!

  4. Awesome...just awesome! I especially love them as little V-day gifts <3 I, also, had me a hankering for homemade cookies this week. Like you, it's a rather unusual event at our house that I bake cookies (other than x-mas, of course). SO delish...and, they may or may not be more than halfway gone already ;)

  5. Our school also has a no homemade goods policy, but the no candy valentines policy? That's just silliness. Boo! Cookies look so yummy!

    I just made some today with mini m&m's and really need to find someone to give them to cause they are addictive!
    My kids schools have the no candy, no homemade rule too...total bummer.

  8. Love it Lish- & really..... no candy on V-day at school. I think I would have to boycott that. :)

  10. What did you tweak in the recipe? I like the way yours are not flat like most photos of Monster Cookies.

  11. What did you tweak in the recipe to make your cookies more dense than flat?
