Triple Peanut Butter Monster Cookies [my personal favorite!]

Anyone else buy the big jars of peanut butter in bulk from Sam’s Club?? Well, I do. My daughter has been caught several times eating out of the jar with a spoon. If I don’t catch her, I always know she’s been in it because she’ll leave her spoon in the jar…. Same with ice cream. Just the other night I found 2 spoons sitting inside the ice cream carton. Sneaky little thing 🙂 


These cookies are so incredibly soft, thick, puffy, and exploding with peanut buttery goodness! I won’t even pretend like I controlled myself and only ate 1. Ugh! Oh well, a few of these and some episodes of Revenge on                  Netflix —–> my current obsession, made for an awesome evening while the hubs was working late and the kids finally went to bed! 

Peanut Butter M&M’s Cookies

Use any type of candy or chocolate chip in this recipe; chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chips, plain m&m's, reeses pieces, the options are endless.

For an extra pretty cookie, place a couple of whole m&m's on top of the cookies right after they come out of the oven.


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter m&m's, coarsely chopped
  • additional white granulated sugar for rolling (1/4 cup)


  1. In large mixing bowl, stand mixer or handheld blender, blend together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, sugar, and egg until combined.
  2. Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt with a wooden spoon. The dough will seem thick, but don't worry, it's supposed to be like that.
  3. Stir in the coarsely chopped m&m's.
  4. Roll dough into a ball (2" +) and then roll in the granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Bake 9-10 minutes.
  5. DO NOT overcook. They will continue cooking slightly while cooling. The cookies will be puffy and still pale looking, but they will be done. Promise. Mine are never in longer than 9 minutes.
  6. Let cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet, or until you can move them, then move to a cooling rack.

This cookie scoop is what I use and it makes the perfect cookie shape [I LOVE the ‘large’ size cookie scoop (3 tablespoon) but I also use the ‘medium’ size sometimes too] and those silpat liners…. seriously, the best!
