Ingredients You’ll Need

All-Purpose Flour. Flour is the ingredient that gives our cookies structure and helps them to keep their shape while they are baking.

Baking Powder. This ingredient ensures that our cookies will rise and have that perfect, fluffy texture we all love so much.

Unsalted Butter. Without this ingredient, our cookies wouldn’t have that mouthwatering buttery goodness or the tender crumb that makes them so tempting.

Light Brown & Granulated Sugar. The combination of these sugars adds sweetness to our treats. The brown sugar in particular will also impart just a hint of molasses richness to each bite.

Vanilla Extract. Helps to balance out all the flavors in the cookie and also deepens the satisfaction we get from every bite.

Eggs. Similar to flour, eggs are key to the structure of our dessert. They bind everything together while also enhancing the cookie’s moisture and richness.

Royal Blue Food Coloring Gel. They wouldn’t be Monster cookies without this fun ingredient. The food coloring gel turns our treats a enticing shade of blue which adds to experience of these tasty treats.

Mixed Chocolate Chips. A three-way mix of semi-sweet, white, and milk chocolate chips makes for a diverse (and delicious!) flavor profile and melty goodness in each bite.

Chopped Oreos and Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies. What would a cookie recipe be without – more cookies? That’s right, we’re going cookie crazy here folks by adding chunks of Oreos and chocolate chip cookies to the mix.1

Milk Chocolate Candy Melt Wafers. Placed right at the heart of each cookies, this ingredient adds a lip-smacking surprise to every bite you take.

Prep. Preheat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is warming up, take two baking trays and line them with parchment paper. Set them aside for later.

Whisk Dry Ingredients. Get a mixing bowl, add the flour and baking powder. Whisk them together and then set the bowl aside for later.

Cream Sugar and Butter. In a large mixing bowl, blend the butter together with the brown sugar and the granulated sugar. Keep going until you’ve got a fluffy, light consistency. Then, add the eggs in one at at time. Be sure to beat the mixture well each time you add an egg. Last, mix in the vanilla extract.

Wet Meets Dry. Add the flour mixture to the wet blend until they are combined.

Beautiful Blue. Now comes the magic! Add the blue food coloring gel and mix it in until you’ve got a striking blue hue.

Chips and Chunks. Fold in all the goodies – mixed chocolate chips, chopped Oreos, and chopped mini chocolate chip cookies. Make sure to distribute them evenly.
