When I told you that I had extra baking goodies from the holidays, did I mention all of these half used bags of chips???

The thought of throwing all of these into one kitchen sink cookie DID cross my mind.  However, I just wasn’t sure how that would go.  Instead, I used the M&M’s to make these incredible cookies last week.  Check them out because the BOY is STILL talking about them.

And then searched the backs of all my bags in search of a recipe, eventually deciding on a peanut butter recipe with Heath bits.

This peanut butter dough is rich and creamy!  However, since I had limited amounts of Heath bits left, I threw in some extra butterscotch chips too.

Great combination!!!

Even the dough is delicious!

Don’t trust me…try a bite when you make these cookies yourself : )

And then make sure to bake them up because these cookies are soft, chewy, and addicting!

The butterscotch chips add the perfect texture combined with toffee in a sweet peanut butter cookie.

Ok, truth is that I am way too tired to type another line, so I will finish this post with the last few mouth watering pictures hoping they give you sweet eve-of-Valentine’s dreams!

    You’re making me seriously starving. I want 12 of those cookies. They’re full of PB so they have to be filled with protein and healthy fats, right ;)?

  2. haha i agree with carly! they have pb sooooooo! these look soo good ! thats what my stash of holiday baking chips looks like i thought it was never ending til i went to find choco the other day and was out :-/

    That is so many bags of chips!! I can’t believe they last in your house that long!! This week my roommate had a few bags and I was confused because neither of us really keep chocolate in the house (cocoa powder actually gives her migraines so she can only eat white) but then when I got home last night I found her making pretzels dipped in chocolate with sprinkles!

    • Those are totally my weakness! I should make some this weekend : ) I don’t really snack on the chips and was actually doing well with the cookies too until lunch today. Afterwhich I found myself in a sugar coma…ha ha!

  4. Butterscotch chips many ANY cookie better!! And–wow–they look like they turned out perfectly. Not over cooked, not under cooked. Just perfect. Nice!

  5. My mom would love these cookies! There’s no way those bags of candy would last that long at my house…I’d end up eating them by the handfuls :-)

  6. You are tempting me, girl! And I’m on a diet! WAH! I want a cookie now!

  7. Wow these look amazing. I love the idea of combining a bunch of different chips into the cookies. I don’t think I can make these otherwise I would eat all of them (that is if I don’t eat the batter first!) ;)

    There’s no way those opened bags of chips would last at our house longer than a week! :)

    Toffee, PB and butterscotch?! Yes, please!
