Monster Cookies

This is one of my sister's favorite cookies from college.  I love making them for Valentine's Day because the colors of the Valentines M & M's look so nice with the color of the dough.  They also look great with the standard M & M mix.

You need:
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon white corn syrup
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 stick of butter melted
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
4 1/2 cups oatmeal ( I use half 1 minute oats and half rolled oats
1 cup M & M's

Combine all ingredients expect M & M's in the bowl of an electric mixer.  Mix until incorporated.  Stir in M & M's.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until very light tan.  Let set on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes.

NOTE TO BAKERS:   I thought I could improve this recipe by using the traditional cookie making protocol of adding the ingredients in layers (creaming the butter and sugar, adding eggs one at a time, vanilla and then the dry ingredients).  When I tried it, the cookies came out horribly- hockey pucks.  Enjoy the ease of mixing all at once for this recipe.
