For Halloween week, Crumbl released their fan-favorite Monster cookies for the week. The number of requests I received to remake them were crazy so I had to do it ASAP! I used a mixture of brown and granulated imperial sugar to get that chewy texture from Crumbl and trust me when I say this, we succeeded!

This recipe couldn’t have been released at a more perfect time too! I feel like a lot of us are going to have extra leftover candy from Halloween so what more of a reason to make these cookies.
Plus you can always mix and match, so instead of using chocolate chips, you can go with chopped-up Twix or Reese’s cups… or whatever the heart desires really!
