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.
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!
Did it work? Are you craving peanut butter, butterscotch, and toffee yet?
