"The menfolk of our house said they couldn?t find one fault with the cookies after demolishing all cookies straight from the pan) The dough can chill overnight and makes a lot. I actually had to use halved mini snickers for the rest of the batch because there weren?t enough milk duds. Even mini peanut butter cups or other chocolate candies would work. Use your imagination and have fun!!! They are addicting!"
