We made these as a dish-to-pass for a weinie roast this weekend and they were a hit! We made half with regular graham crackers and half with the chocolate grahams. We chose to leave out the peanuts and cut them in small bars (as pictured). While very sweet the small serving helped keep them from being overwhelming and made a perfect finger food.
P.S. I forgot to mention: Line the cookie sheet with foil, then spray/grease. The cookies will come out alot easier. Also, no mess.
WOW! I wasn't sure I'd like the peanuts, but they really added to the balance of the sweet. Loved this recipe, so did everyone else. ;-)
I loved the ease of making this recipe and it tasted very good. But like I thought, it was a bit difficult to get it out of the pan and the caramel/butterscotch stuff on top was a little more crunchy than I had expected I thought it would be chewy. but it satisfied my chocolate s'more cravings!
This is extremely rich. It is more like a candy bar than a cookie. I did not care for the peanuts in the recipe.

Every year around this time, I start to panic a little. How am I ever going to decide what cookies to bake for the holiday season?! Do I stick with the classics or try something new? How many can we eat at our house (more than I care to admit…but cookies count as part of a balanced breakfast, right?) Without self-restraint, I could probably make a dozen different kinds!
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
‘Tis the season to make all things sweet – cookies, cakes, and candies. Yes, even candies – those “sometimes tricky” treats that make the holiday so special. More ...
