3 eggs
1 ¼ cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ teaspoon corn syrup
1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter, softened
½ cup M&Ms plain
½ cup chocolate chips
¼ cup raisins, optional
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 ½ cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
