A childhood favorite I never grew out of!
- 1/2 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1-1/2 cups peanut butter
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 teaspoon corn syrup
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 4-1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 pound candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
- 1/4 pound semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, white sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the corn syrup and vanilla. Mix in baking soda and oats until well blended. Stir in the chocolate candies and chocolate chips. Roll dough into 2 inch balls, and place 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes, before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
