#179_Peanut Butter Cookies: Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies
without the chips!

In one way these are chocolate chip cookies
and in another way they are not.
I don't know if I'm making any sense,
but here's what I did...

I substituted Reese's Peanut Butter Clusters
and Hershey's chocolate bar
in place of chocolate chips called for in Mrs. Field's Cookie recipe.
The result?? OMG, melt-in-your-mouth goodness!

These cookies are so soft, moist and chewy
and are actually better than chocolate chips cookies
as long as you don't over bake them.
Better yet, they are so easy to make...
if you can boil water, you can make these cookies.
Just use any chocolate chip cookies recipe
that you might already have, leaving out the chips

then replace the chips with a bag of Reese's Clusters
and a king size Hershey's chocolate bar.
Chop them up and mix them in the cookie dough mixture.
(I just had to reduce the sugar called for in the recipe
as the clusters have plenty of sugar in them already).

A Caveat: very addicting!

The taste-testers!
These are my little neighbor friends...
patiently and eagerly and xcited to try the cookies.

Careful, the cookies are still very hot!

  2. Thank you,Terresa for visiting. I went to your blog... you have a nice one. Neat picture of your kids and family.

  3. Oh,I know how addictive these cookies are, Mamely..
    That's the reason why I stopped baking for a while but I keep seeing tempting sweets like these, I'll probably go back to regular baking again sooner than I planned.

  4. Hi Olive, Thank you for your visit once again. I know what you can't stop with just 2 or 3 cookies, he-he!
