When I told my mom I was making these cookies, she most likely felt a twinge of jealous-happiness. Happy that I was making these but jealous that should could not gobble them up with me.
If you’ve ever had a Take 5 candy bar before, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. The candy bar itself has a combination of peanuts, caramel, pretzels, peanut butter, and milk chocolate. The sweet and salty combination is to die for. I have a hard time controlling myself when it comes to this candy bar, so I limit that impulse by not buying the candy at all.
All that limiting impulse stuff goes out the window when your grandma sends you a big bag of Take 5 candy after visiting Hershey’s Chocolate World. Can you be tortured by your favorite candy? I’d say so.
So the battle began. At first, I just let the bright red bag of candy sit on my counter unopened. Then I decided to snip off a corner and just eat
one a few. After a few days of this cycle, I knew I’d have to be more productive about this.
So what should I do with all that peanut buttery, pretzely, chocolately goodness? Make cookies out of it, of course!
Turns out, candy in cookies is all the rage these days. I started with a simple, chocolate chip cookie base, to which I added a few dollops of peanut butter for good measure.
Then, of course, I chopped up the Take 5 candy bars and added that deliciousness in.
Hope you enjoy this creation as much as I did!
