Monster Holiday Cookies

And the holiday baking continues….. 🙂

This is a basic Monster Cookie recipe that has been dressed up for the holidays.

The Nestle Toll House Swirled Holiday Morsels are a favorite of mine, and really add a festive touch to my holiday baking. I search for these green and red swirled morsels every Christmas in my local grocery store, and purchase a bunch of them to pack away in my freezer.
