I originally made Candy Bar(f) cookies at Halloween. They were amazingly delicious and I had to make another batch. This time I used candy containing peanuts. They’re called Candy Bar(f) cookies because 1) they use a variety of items and 2) they look a bit like.. well you know… with the lumps of everything mixed together. An upgrade from regular chocolate chip, Candy Bar(f) cookies are an excellent use of holiday treats when they go on clearance (Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Easter etc).
