These monster cookies came from a traditional family cookbook from my mom's side of the family. They are a family favorite and everyone who's had them loves them!
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Melt 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
Add 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar and mix.
Add 3 eggs, 3/4 tsp. vanilla, and 3/4 tsp. Karo syrup; continue mixing
Add 2 tsp. baking soda and 1 1/2 c. peanut butter; mix
Add 4 1/2 c. oatmel and mix
Add 1 c. chocolate chips and 1/2 a bag of M&M's then continue mixing
Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a cookie sheet (I put parchment paper on the cookie sheet so the bottoms of the cookies don't get burnt)
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes
Finally let cool and eat!!! (recipe makes about 3.5 dozen)
