M&M Monster Cookie

Its that time again… cleaning out the pantry! These monster cookies got a little bit of everything in them, even corn flakes!
To make:
Follow your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I really like Nestle Toll house. Add in all of your half empty bags from the pantry. This particular batch got a little of the following:
About ½ c. White chocolate
About ½ c. Butterscotch
About ½ c. Dark chocolate
About 1 c. Coconut
About 1½ c. M&Ms
About 1 c. Oatmeal
About 1 c. Cornflakes
About 1 c. Peanut butter

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Ok, let me start off by saying these are fantastic. If you have little willpower you should not keep reading because I will be posting the recipe. Once you’ve had a taste of these you’ll crave them. Dare I say even dream about them :)

Whoever first paired chocolate and peanut butter, I applaud you!

Peanut Butter Frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1. Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.
