    These are so good. I made some and took them into my ds preschool teacher she asked for the recipe. She absolutely loved them. Everyone that tried them liked them.

    These look really cute with the nestle Christmas shapes in them. You can sub different chips and even baking m and m's.

    Does anyone know where they got this name for these cookies? I see them advertised in TOH but haven't ever made them. Just curious because I'm from Minnesota!

    I found this in the COuntry store magazine "IT'S TRUE! We sifted through 34,000 entries in our national cookie recipe contest to find the one cookie that beat 'em all!
    And it's not just our opinion. Over 7,000 unbiased judges (folks who stopped in at our Visitor Center in Greendale, Wisconsin) helped us taste-test them, and finally chose "MMMMinnesota Munchers" by Marcia Severson of Hallock, Minnesota."

    TOH has a cookie book with many of the other recipes that were submitted. At first I wasn't going to get it, but after borrowing a friends decided it has too many yummy recipes to pass up! The Minnesota Munchers won the Grand prize and the recipe was keep a secret and you could only buy the mix.

    Is this the real "secret" recipe or a copy cat version?

    Make sure you add 1 tsp of cinnamon to that recipe to make them perfect! My belief is that with the cinnamon, this is the recipe, not just a copy cat recipe.

    I'm curious about this recipe...for one, I thought it was a "secret recipe"..??? After the contest...??? It sounds so very good...My other question is..is the baking powder the correct ingredient?? Usually these kind of cookies call for baking soda and not powder. I would love to make these and want to check on that ingredient first.
    Thanks :>)
