I’m a coupon clipper. I admit it! I don’t go as far as some of those people on Extreme Couponing on TLC or anything but darn it, I love saving a buck. In my searches for the best money saving coupons out there, I stumbled upon what may be one of the most amazing cookie recipes known to man. Attached to a ‘Save $1/2 Snickers Miniature Candies’ was this glorious recipe just calling out to me “Make me, Make me – you KNOW I’m your favorite candy bar!”. How could I resist? I had the coupon in hand and really, I only need to be asked once when it comes to chocolate! These cookies combine some of the most popular cookie flavors we associate with such things and the name is perfect. And honestly, it is NO surprise they disappeared in record time from my kitchen…I wasn’t even fast enough to grab some for my own picture. They’re that good! Wait…what is that you say? You’re not a fan of Snickers? Feel free to substitute Milky Way, Three Musketeers, or any candy bar that comes in the miniature size!
