C is for Colossal Cookies

I made these cookies for a Memorial Day cookout. They are a bit of work, but nothing the average baker can't handle! The batch makes a LOT of cookies, so be prepared. Bring them to a picnic, give some to your elderly neighbor, dish them out to relatives, and then enjoy the rest!


2 Cups butter
2 Cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups flour
5 cups oatmeal blended to a powder (measure the oatmeal, then blend or food process)
1 8 oz. Hershey bar, grated
24 oz Chocolate chips (2 normal size bags)
3 cups chopped walnuts
A husband, son, or father to stir the dough

Oven temp: 400 degrees

First find a BIG bowl. Have one? Good. Put it away and get a bigger one. A bucket even.
Cream the butter and sugars together. Add eggs. Stir in salt, baking soda, vanilla, and flour. Add oats. Call in appointed male stirrer. (Literally, we have broken wooden spoons with this recipe!) Add chocolate bar, chocolate chips and nuts. At this point, you can give up on stirring with a utensil. Wash your hands and use them to stir. Form into golf balls.
Bake 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8 or 9 minutes.



  1. They look delicious! Will have to add this to my recipe box. Would a kitchen aid electric mixer work? I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Nate said I had to get this recipe from you and you just made it really easy...thanks! He's a huge fan of them which is a good thing because it looks like I'm gonna need his help making them!

  3. I love your blog your sensibility your fashions, your eye, your humor and your go girl...Jennifer

  4. Cookiiiiiiiies!!!! Those look soooo good! My mom wants to make them ASAP. I am just sitting here drooling over the picture....well alright, not really drooling. Hehe!

  6. Thanks for all the comments!

    Yaya orchid, the mixing paddle doesn't work with the kitchen aid mixer - we have tried it. My husband thinks that the dough hook might work. It's a very thick batter!

    Jaclyn, glad to have helped! ;)

    Jennifer, THANKS! I loooove your style and fabrics!

    Victoria, let me know how they came out if you make them!

    Rachel, thank you!

  7. You can't be serious about golf ball sized, can you? How big are these monsters? I LOVE choc chip cookies!
