I thought of this cookie when I was playing around with a chocolate chip cookie recipe. Hope it's liked!

I have never had an Almond Joy before but after this recipe I sure want to try it! The only issue I had was that I didn't have a 12 inch cake pan so ended up using a 8 inch. This caused the 'cookie' to become way too deep and took much longer to cook. It was still amazing! I am so going to try this again once I get a larger cake pan and/or make this same recipe in actual cookie format. :) Might also be better portion sizes too. :D
