These cookies remind me of peanut butter fudge. My Grandmother made them for us, and now I make them for my family. There is nothing healthy about this recipe but it is a great sweet-tooth fixer.

These are absolutely divine!! I am always asked to bring these for our school's bake sale and they are always the first to go! If there are any leftovers (which is doubtful) I prefer to keep the in the refrigerator.

Inspiration and Ideas

My Five Candy Bar Cookies
Rating: Unrated
1
These candy bar cookies contain 'my five,' which are cookie, pretzel, caramel, peanuts, and chocolate. Lots of steps, but none of them are hard. I wouldn't plan on whipping these out in 1:30 hours, but I find I can do one step at a time while doing something else, like making dinner and they are done by the end of the night. Works best if you can let it cool slightly between layers.
High Protein Peanut Butter Balls

This recipe makes 25 to 30 walnut-size crunchy treats, delicious when they begin to melt. Just divvy them into plastic sandwich bags and stick them in the freezer. Then, instead of reaching for a processed boxful of ingredients you can't even pronounce, you will be ready with a healthy, high-protein snack.

No-bake cookies made without cocoa or milk. Made all in one pan, easy to double or cut in half. Warning! These are addicting.
