Christmas Monster Cookies are a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Glad & M&M’S®. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you busy baking this season? I’ll admit, I’m pretty sure that is all I have been doing everyday of the month so far!
This week, I realized that my son had a bake sale, so that means I was back in the kitchen whipping up some goodies for the sale.
I stopped by Target to pick up the M&M’S® White Chocolate Peppermint because they are only available there, and I knew that I wanted to make the Black and White Peppermint Brownies along with some Christmas Monster Cookies.
The Black and White Peppermint Brownie recipe is located on the back of the Glad storage containers, that are in the holiday packaging.
These are only available at Target, and they are absolutely perfect for gift giving or to store goodies for a bake sale like I did!
Since I was making these a little bit early before the sale, I wanted to keep them fresh and the Glad holiday packaging worked wonderfully for that.
Along with the brownies, I also made a batch of Christmas Monster Cookies with the M&M’S® Holiday Dark Mint variety too along with pretzels.
My son joined in and helped me make them from start to finish, which included taste testing.
He gave them the star of approval for the bake sale, I hope that means his friends will enjoy them too!

These are a must try and one that a reader actually suggested a while back. I knew when I saw this recipe that it would be perfect for our bake sale.
Be sure to stop by Target to pick up the exclusive M&M’S® White Chocolate Peppermint and Glad storage containers in the holiday packaging.
