Big humongous monster cookies are easy to make and perfect for Christmas. These monster cookies are surprisingly handsome looking enough to be wrapped as Christmas gifts. Being large and dense, the cookies store well and retain their moisture better than smaller cookies. These oversized cookies are appealing because size does matter!

Instead of spending hours and hours making Christmas cakes, have a go at baking monster cookies. It will only take a fraction of your time to bake monster cookies and they taste great, too. Almost everybody will be making Christmas cakes anyway, try to be different and make these big monster cookies instead. Family and friends will definitely appreciate them especially if they have been receiving lots of cakes from other friends.

Here's how you can make those awesome chocolate chip monster cookies. First, you'll need all of the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup chocolate buttons or chocolate chips


With an electric egg mixer, beat the butter and sugar until they are light and fluffy. Next, add in the eggs, one at a time and mix well. Stir in the vanilla essence. Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Combine all the ingredients by stirring gently. Next, add in the chocolate buttons (or chocolate chips) and stir until all the ingredients are evenly distributed in the dough.

Preheat the oven to 150ºC. Line a few trays with baking paper.

Using a one-third measuring cup, drop a scoop of dough onto the baking tray. Space out the next dough about 10cm apart.

Bake one tray at a time in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the monster cookies are golden brown. Transfer the monster cookies to the wire racks to cool. The cookies can be stored for up to four days in airtight jars at room temperature. Stored in the refrigerator, they will last for up to a month.

Wrap each cookie with coloured cellophane paper and decorate with ribbons.

    randomcreative, I have tried monster cookies with M&Ms but can`t use the peanut butter because a few people I know are allergic to nuts.
