Easiest Monster Cookies Ever

    So, I am into my fourth week of my diet. I’m a bit bummed because the scale is only showing minimal weight loss. That’s really frustrating! 
    However, on the bright side, my clothes are fitting better and I bought a pair of shorts a size smaller yesterday! Hooray! So, I guess that’s proof that it IS worth keeping it up. 
    I’ve also been drawing strength from other bloggers who are participating in a 5K Challenge over at Red Faces Runners. I’m not running right now, just swimming three times a week. I figure I can run inside all winter long. I love my “me” time. Being  in the water is so relaxing, and I don’t have the time or distractions to think about stuff. I just swim and breathe. 
    Oh, and sometimes I sing in my head, “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” Thanks, Dory!
    So, these are the Easiest Monster Cookies Ever! And I mean EVER!! 
    Dump a bag of sugar cookie mix into a bowl and mix it with a stick of butter – per the instructions.
    To that, dump in a bag of M&M’s Snack Mix. I used the Salty and Sweet mix with Pretzels, Almonds, and Raisins.

    Measure out the cookies as big as you like. I used my tablespoon cookie scoop.
    Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes

    Allow to cool… if you can…
    And gobble up!
    I’m sure you can make your own Sugar Cookie dough and toss in the bag of M&M’s. Nothing wrong with that. But if you are like me, and your kid(s) are bugging you for cookies, this is the way to go! 

    These were fast, fun, easy, and DELICIOUS! And that’s all that matters.
