Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

"I like to add candy bars to cookie dough for a change of pace," writes Christine Beeman of Horseheads, New York. Crushed Clark bars give a boost of peanut butter and chocolate flavor to these flourless peanut butter cookies. "I took them to work and they were a big hit," she notes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 25, 2013

"Very good Kind of like a "granola bar". I think you could add whatever nuts or dried fruit you wanted. I tried chocolate chips and nuts in some."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2013

"I have been making these classic cookies for years. However, the addition of chocolate candy kicks up demand for the quick cookies. Since we love peanut butter I usually add more than the 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Be prepared to make many batches of these cookies!"
