“These cookies are great just from the oven, but even more amazing you can freeze them after baking and when you thaw them out they will be just as chewy and good as they were when they were fresh. Recipe is easily halved or doubled. Yummy!” - by SYNEVA B
Original recipe yields 6 dozen
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
- In a very large bowl, cream together the margarine, butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and rolled oats; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in chocolate chips and candy-coated chocolate pieces. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden. If you like chewy cookies, take them out before they look done.

"I have made this recipe several times altering different aspects each time and to me this is the best cookie recipe ever. The changes I made were 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter instead of 1 cup butter, 3..." See more cups flour and 5 cups oatmeal, not 4 and 4, 4 teaspoons of vanila instead of 2, 3/4 cup of the candy not 1 cup and add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Also these cookies bake up best when they are large. I roll the cookie dough into a ball slightly larger than a golf ball. If you try to make smaller cookies you end up with a lot of the candy and chocolate chips on the outside of the cookie not baked inside. I always make the full recipe and freeze most of them. These are delicious fresh but tend to stale quickly. I freeze any cookies that won't be eaten in 3-4 days. They defrost quickly and taste as though they were baked that day"
"These were awesome! I made a half batch which was just right. I substituted peanut butter for the butter and made sure to have lots of M&M's. I used my hands to press dough into balls and baked just..." See more 10 minutes. They were chewy and stayed fresh. My new favorite!"
"WHO would actually complain to your face about your cookies??? This recipe is the best! I make this not only for my family, but for church functions, friends, etc. This makes a huge batch of de..." See morelicious cookies. The texture from the oatmeal, chocolate chips, and M & M's (which is what I use) is perfect. These cookies turn out perfect every time I bake them. I attribute this to the stoneware which I use to bake cookies. I also use real butter in place of the margarine. (Cookies without REAL butter just taste blah, in my opinion.) I have had many requests for this recipe. Thanks Linda!"
