I don’t even want to write much in today’s post…. Seriously the more I talk and ramble on (even though I adore your beautiful faces) the longer it’s going to take you to make these cookies.
I know I often say, you need these cookies/cake/bread ( I heart carbs clearly) when I post a recipe– and I’m normally right … but this time, YOU ACTUALLY NEED THESE COOKIES, it’s like a do-or-die situation .. except not, and I could just be acting over dramatic or dealing with the effects of a major sugar high.
Now I must warn you – nothing about these cookies are healthy – except everything about them is delicious! Sweet – Salty – Chewy – Crunchy – YUM!
These are not the type of cookies, you eat if you want to be dainty over tea. No, no – these beauties are chock full of M&Ms, pretzels, Mini Rolos, Oreos & lays chips; they’re the type you face-plant into and eat cookie monster style not leaving a crumb of evidence of their existence.
Calling all major junkies … err … junk food lovahs – clear out your snack cupboard, it’s time to make coooooooooooooooooookies.
I blame the sugar … and m&ms … and rolo – they’re so little and cute.
