    Great cookies, even without decorations

    DINAH ROJAS from

    I was in the mood for a good, chewy, large-sized chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, so I made these without the wooden sticks and frosting. I changed the sugars to 1/2 cup granulated and 1 cup dark brown to see if they would come out chewier (don't know if it made a difference). I also used milk chocolate chips and substituted the raisins with toasted pecans. My co-workers thought this was the best cookie they've ever had, and I tend to believe them!

    Treats for busy kids

    andrea haines from broken arrow, OK

    My kid loved these on a stick they are easy to handle and keep his small hands mostly frosting free. They are easy to dress up for each different holiday and kids never tire of decorating these themselves at a cookie decorating party.

    Monster Pops

    Jennifer Caraway from DES MOINES, IA

    After I made this recipe for my kids, the monster pops were gone within an hour. When you make monster pops, they do not last very long if you have kids in the house.

    Flavored?

    Shannon Denison from SPANISH FORT, AL

    I'm thinking you could replace some of the margarine with peanut butter for a variation...

  •  Star(s)

    Monster Pops

    Theresa Worley from Frankfort, IN

    I just made these for my grandson's birthday. These are big, tasty cookies that kids can really wrap themselves around. My grandson was thrilled to take something that he helped decorate. What a neat idea for those cold snowy days to come!

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent

    Ann Knopfel from Covington, OK

    Very good. What a cute way to have snacks for little ones. Pre-Kers would love to decorate their own cookie with the icing and the trimming and it would let them use their hands in developing eye hand coordiodiation and letting them work on the names and parts of the body. Will use the recipe again

    Perfect surprise

    Jeanmarie Engle from STATEN ISLAND, NY

    My niece and nephew loved this treat. I will make it with a christmas theme. I thought they tasted good.

  •  Star(s)

    great indoor fun

    CHRISTINA DEMIERE from MELBOURNE, FL

    This recipe allowed my kids and I to spend some quality time in the kitchen today. My son, not feeling well, wanted to do something fun. I knew a batch of cookies would put a smile on his face--and his sister's, too since she would enjoy decorating just as much as he did. The cookies are DELICIOUS made as the recipe suggests, but next time I'll make them without raisins. We used tubes of icing and gum drops to decorate.

    Great Surprise!

    Erica Murphy from DEARBORN HEIGHTS, MI

    We had a couple of snow days recently, which meant the kids were home, and bored. We wanted to do something fun. So I went straight for the recipe box here on Verybestbaking.com. In no time at all we had a delicious and fun snack whipped up. It satisfied my little ones sweet teeth and it was such a good break from the traditional baked goods we have when it is cold out!

    Fun for little ones! (even teens)

    Jeri Haley from Tenino, WA

    This is cookie is easy to make and brings out your imagination. I had so much fun making them. We live in a little town in WA. Everyone knows everyone, very friendly town. I made these for a Halloween bake sale at the high school. They were a big hit! Had more teens buying them than little ones with their parents. One mom told me why didn't I give them out to the trick-or-treaters, they would love them! I took her up on it, and made more, decorated them all different, wrapped in little plastic bags and tied with brown and orange curling ribbon. I had the little ones trying to come back for seconds! Even the teens were complimenting me on them. There is no way I could have given them out in CA, where we used to live.

    Monsterific

    Ericka Cooper from San Diego, CA

    My Dad calls these Monster Cookies and they're his specialty. He doesn't use the frosting or sticks, but he does add cherry chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, and white chocolate chips. He will also add little chocolate candies with a colorful candy shell for additional color. He also makes a huge batch every time he does it, about 12 dozen.
