This is one thing that I will be able to make every year that Grandma made. This year it was hard to make them due to my family being in Toledo making cookies and me being at home making these with my kids knowing she won’t ever make them again. But I took them into work to share some and they ate them up fast. Many have asked for the recipe so I am posting it here to make it easier.
Okay just to let you know this makes a TON of cookies so you might want to cut it in half if not you could always freeze them and eat them later.
2lbs brown sugar
4 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon karo syrup
8 teaspoons baking soda
1 lb butter
3 lbs Peanut butter
18 cups or 42 oz Quick Oats
1 lb chocolate chips
1 lb M&M’s
Mix all ingredients. (I mixed the eggs and the butter first then adding in the sugars ect.)
Put one tablespoon of batter on a cookie sheet and flatten slightly. (The cookies will spread out so you may want to only put 9 on a cookie sheet vs a dozen.)
Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from pan.
*Remember that this took my 2 large bowls for me to mix*
Hope that you all enjoy!
