STEP THREE: Form 6 equal portions from your dough, roll them into balls, and place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Break your remaining mini Oreo and chocolate chip cookies into pieces. Cover the tops of the cookie dough with the remaining white chocolate chips, Oreos, and chocolate chip cookie pieces.
STEP FOUR: Place your dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. The dough must be chilled for soft and chewy cookies!

Why Are My Cookie Monster Cookies Falling Apart?
The most likely culprit is impatience. Since these treats are so loaded with goodness, be sure to allow a minimum of five minutes for your cookies to cool before transferring them to a cooling rack.
And don’t forget to chill the dough before baking! This firms up the butter and prevents the cookies from spreading too thin in the oven.
Why Is It Called a Monster Cookie?
Generally speaking, monster cookies feature a mash-up of several different beloved cookies.
They are generally combinations of cookies such as oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate chip and are named “monster cookies” in the spirit of Frankenstein’s mash-up monster.
These blue cookie monster cookies stand out from other monster cookies since it boasts the familiar blue of Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster and entire chunks of America’s favorite cookies.
Can These Blue Cookie Monster Cookies Be Made Ahead of Time?
Absolutely! Prepare the dough and allow it to chill in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months before baking.
Once cooked and stored in an airtight container, your cookies will stay fresh for 3-5 days at room temperature or for up to a week in the refrigerator.

- Try out red food coloring for Elmo cookies or yellow for Big Bird. Whatever the color, I like to use gel food coloring.

- Feel free to substitute your favorite cookie pieces.
- Make 12 smaller cookies instead of 6 large ones. You got this!
