These cookies are to die for. I used my small scoop and yielded 7 dozen cookies. I will be making these again. SJS9

MY REVIEW

These are fantastic and quick. I'm lazy so I tend to make bar cookies with the entire batch of batter on the cookie sheet spread out. Once they were out of the oven I had to try one. Yummy! I don't like M&M's so I used semi-sweet chocolate ships instead.

Delicious combination! I will definitely make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2014

Tried the 3 cups of flour. They were a little dry. I offset the dryness by drizzling a chocolate glaze and then a dollop of frosting made with powdered sugar, coconut milk and coconut. I used the pretzels and peanut butter M&Ms and chocolate chips. As always, I keep a piece of bread in cookie container to impart moisture for a chewy moist texture. Delicious flavor!
