This recipe for chewy monster cookie bars has everything you love about classic monster cookies, but with a few tweaks to make them bake up as perfect bars. These soft and chewy bars are packed with peanuts, chocolate chips, M&M’s® and oats – the perfect balance of sweet and salty. It’s easy to make and takes only 10 minutes to prep with the help of a pouch of Betty Crocker™ peanut butter cookie mix. We love packing these flavor-filled monster cookie bars for lunch, keeping them on hand as a midday snack, or enjoying them topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a deliciously indulgent dessert.
