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.
