Tip #1

Milk chocolate-covered caramel, peanut and nougat miniature (not fun size) candy bars will also work in this recipe. Use a whole miniature candy for each cookie.

I make this a lot. I use bite size snickers in mine! Family loves these! I also made the old fashioned apple crisp. It's now my favorite. Simple recipe & very good!
