Combination Cookies

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.

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!

  1. 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 :-/

  2. 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!
