My son works in an office full of women. Every two weeks I send him with homemade cookies. Tried this last week, they were a fabulous hit. I added the semi-sweet choc. chips and a coarsely chopped Hershey's milk choc. bar. On the top I also put chopped Snicker's bar, milk choc bar and pecans. I doubled the recipe and it made 24 large cookies. After years of baking on the best recipes, I will be making these for a long time. Taking them to my co-workers next.

Wish I could give this one more than 5 stars! These are so delicious. And easy too. They taste just like they came from a bakery or coffehouse. Definitely in my pile for Christmas cookies!

These are awesome cookies! I have tripled the batch, using different kinds of candy bars on each dozen. For those who crave a peanut butter taste to their cookies, Reese's work awesome with this recipe!
