Monster Cookies have always been a family favorite.  This adapted recipe from Bakerella would really simplify the process.  It’s on our “must try” list.  ~ Jan

Monster Cookie Bars
Makes 20

2⅔ cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
⅔ cup butter, softened
1½ cups light brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup white chocolate morsels
1 cup M&M’s
½ cup dried cranberries, raisins or cherries
½ cup sweetened shredded coconut

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.

2. In a medium bowl, use a wire whisk to mix flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

3. Using a mixer, cream butter and sugar together until blended. Add eggs one at a time and mix until incorporated. Then add vanilla and mix.

4. Slowly add the flour and mix until combined. Stir in dark and white chocolate morsels, M&M’s, dried cranberries and coconut.

5. Spread into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes until done. If the top starts to get too brown, you can cover the top with a sheet of aluminum foil for the last 10 minutes of baking.

6. Once cool, cut into 20 bars.
