Take 5 Cookie

So, I was bored today…well, not really boredbored…just procrastination-bored. You know the kind…where you have loads of things you SHOULD be doing, but you just can’t seem to get motivated to do them.
ENTER Take 5.
There they were sitting unassumingly in our pantry, purchased for a reason I don’t remember…
So, why not? Right? They will be happy in cookie form…right? Or how about this ~ I will be happier making cookies then, say…doing laundry…Alright that’s probably closer
to the truth =)
If you are unfamiliar with the Take 5 bar it is a delicious mish-mash of goodies. It is a waffle-pretzel topped with Reeses Peanut butter layered with caramel and peanuts covered in Hershey’s Milk chocolate…trust me, these are GOOOOOOOD!
Here’s what I did:
2 sticks butter-room temp
3/4 c. smooth peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
3 cups AP flour
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips ~ semi sweet
1 bag Hershey’s Take 5 ~ Snack Size
Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars
Add eggs one at a time
Add vanilla
Mix dry ingredients separately.
Slowly add dry ingredients to mix
Add chocolate chips.
Chill dough for about 2 hrs.
After dough is chilled preheat oven to 375
Unwrap Take 5 bars and cut in half
Now take a large spoon-full of dough and cover each candy…don’t worry these cookies are large. You could always quarter the Take 5’s if you wanted a larger batch of smaller cookies.
Bake for about 7-8 minutes until cookie starts to brown around edges.
Wait for them to cool and garnish with a drizzle of chocolate or caramel..or hey, both if you’re feeling crazy!
These cookies were really good, and really rich. The pretzel in each one is a little salty surprise and the rest of the Take 5 makes for a delicious gooey cookie.
Now, thinking I had come up with something original here I quickly googled “Take 5 cookie” and low and behold there are versions out there…I didn’t find one like mine, though, so I will take full credit here =)
Have a great day!

These look great! I was wondering if you can alter your old recipe pages so people can pin them also??
