These are the best cookies in the world! My best friend's mom used to make these for us 20 years ago. They are just as good as I remembered!
1/2 c butter or margarined, softened
1 c sugar
1 c Plus 2 Tbsp brown sugar, firmly packed
2 c crunchy peanut butter
1/4 ts vanilla extract
3/4 tsp light corn syrup
4 1/2 c regular oats, uncooked
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c M&M's
1 c chocolate chips
Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, peanut butter, vanilla, and corn syrup; beat well. Add oats, soda, and salt, stirring well. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, four inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350*F degrees for 12-15 minutes (centers of cookies will be slightly soft). Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks and cool completely.
