Take 5 Cookies

Elisa and I like Take 5 candy bars so when I saw these at Cookies and Cups, we wanted to try them. I couldn't find a bag of snack size ones anywhere so I went online to see if they sell them. Apparently they do, but only around Halloween. So I just bought 6 candy bars and cut those to use. Pretty fun, big cookies!
Take 5 Cookies
1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. smooth peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
3 c. flour
1 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag Snack Size Hershey's Take 5 OR 6 -7 Regular Size
Cream butter, peanut butter and sugarsAdd eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Mix dry ingredients separately. Slowly add dry ingredients to mix. Add chocolate chips. Chill dough for about 2 hrs.
After dough is chilled preheat oven to 375°. Unwrap Take 5 bars and cut in half. Now take a large spoon-full of dough and cover each candy. Bake for about 7-8 minutes until cookie starts to brown around edges. Wait for them to cool and garnish with a drizzle of chocolate or caramel, if desired.

  4. These look and sound fabulous!
