Butter, Granulated sugar and milk
Creamy peanut butter - Make sure to get a nice peanut butter that is smooth and creamy. While I do like the appeal of natural peanut butter that you have to mix up before using, that does NOT work well with this kind of recipe.
Pure Vanilla Extract - I've said it before and I will say it again...invest in a good quality vanilla extract! It really does make all of the difference in the flavor of your baked goods!
Granola, large chunks crushed
Old fashioned oats
Valentine M&M candies - Keep in mind, if you want to make this No Bake Blonde Monster Cookie Recipe for another holiday - or just for fun anytime of the year, you can use any kind of M&Ms.

I know that many people still like to print out recipes and keep them in a recipe binder, or simply have the printed recipe sitting in front of them when it comes time to cook!
Sometimes it is just easier to go off a recipe when it is printed right in front of you. Who wants to swipe their screen on their phone or tablet when their hands are greasy? So I love offering this option as well!
