More Garbage Cookies

I got this very upsetting email yesterday afternoon from a friend of mine regarding her daughter.  When I called her, they were on their way home from a very long day at the hospital.  Her daughter has a kidney infection.  Anyone know how a 10 year old gets a kidney infection?

She did tell me that after a hellish day, her daughter was hungry and craving Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  I told her I was going to make her cookies with that particular candy in it!  I was told, she "smiled".

After returning from dinner last night, I chopped up a bunch of "crappy" goodies to make these cookies.  This particular batch has the following:

  • mini reeses peanut butter cups
  • dark chocolate chunks
  • homemade marshmallows
  • butterscotch chips
  • rice krispies
  • salted peanuts
  • pretzel sticks

Should have added more chocolate.  However, by the time I returned from delivering the cookies, the half dozen that were cooling on my kitchen counter were gone!  I don't think anyone noticed the lack of chocolate.

This is a really fun way to make cookies (see original post, here).  Try it and use up all the stuff that is crowding your pantry!

thank you susan for helping find the cookie dough to this recipe! these were a big hit. i really loved the sweet and savory taste of them. i added golden graham cereal, rice krispies, gold fish crackers, (didn't have the right kind of potato chips), pretzels, whoppers, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, quick oatmeal, and kit kat bars. i only wish i hadn't tasted the batter! wow that was incredible. meagan's friend called them explosion cookies, because her mouth exploded when she ate them!
