I made these for work and used Snickers, Reece's Peanut Butter Cup and Thin Mints and everyone raved and raved about them! Score!!

I made a test batch of these for my cookie trays and they passed the test with flying colors! I used rolos and snickers on mine. So much fun to experiment with all kinds of candy bars!

Wonderful cookies that would be a perfect addition for holiday sweet trays. I chose to use Snickers candy bars for my candy of choice. My 2nd time around I'll be using Twix. I can see where a cluster of 3 M&M's would be a cute addition too. Ahma's right in that these would be fun to do with your kiddo's. :-)
