Can I stop making sweets for a change? I’m not sure if it’s possible. I might spontaneously combust (sp?). Let’s not test it out, agreed?Oh yeah, this is another cookie recipe (if you haven’t noticed). I have taken the liberty upon myself to test out and stuff my face with everything that sounds remotely delicious on blogs all over the web. It’s a job that must be done. Please wait to applaud until the end. Thank you. Anywhoo wait till you see what’s inside these bad boys. Really, these are slightly mind blowing. No. That’s not right. They’re gonna freaking KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF. Okay, I think that’s better. So can you guess what the winning combo is??? Oh gosh, these really are some super stars in here. Here it is. Peanut butter. Pretzels. White Chocolate. Oh baby.If you’ve got these and a nice glass of cold milk you are good to go my friend. Nothing stands in between you and pure bliss. Okay, well I’m just gonna go off now and act like I’m not gonna stuff my face with cookies. Alright, good.
