Monster Cookie Recipe

Have you ever had a Monster Cookie?  I am not sure why they are called Monster Cookies other than the fact that these things are LOADED with goodness.  I thought it would be fun to share our little Halloween twist on our Monster Cookie Recipe

 This would be a fun door bell ditching gift for you neighbors sometime around Halloween.  Simply whip up your favorite batch of Monster Cookies and package them in this labeled jar, which is simply a cleaned out pickle jar.

Make sure you really clean it out as you don’t want the cookies to have a pickle after taste! Then slap on one of these Monster Cookie Labels that I made from one of Love Manor’s amazing Halloween Labels.  Some of you may remember a couple of years ago when I used some of these same labels on this Halloween Apothecary.
