Ann Romney's M&M Cookies

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter (I used Crunchy Honey Peter Pan peanut butter)

1 Tbsp light corn syrup 

3 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

2 tsp baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips

2/3 cup M&Ms candies (I used mini M&Ms)

Heat oven to 325°. 

In a large bowl, cream sugars, butter, peanut butter and corn syrup on high speed until well combined. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Add vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, mix together oats and baking soda. Add to peanut butter mixture and stir until combined. Mix in chocolate chips and M&M's.

Using a standard-size ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets (about 9 per sheet). 

Bake for 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
