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!
