    I used leftover Mounds bars, Chocolate kisses, threw in a few raisins, and dried cranberries for good measure. The flavor of these cookies was great but I had a hard time getting them to shape correctly. My first batch did not spread and stayed as balls. I added extra baking powder for the second batch and that helped a bunch. Now let me add that there may have been three reasons for this. First, I am at a high altitude and second I subbed Splenda (sugar substitute) for most of the sugar. I have not baked with this before and don’t know if that would have been the problem. Finally, my baking soda is older than six months and that could have been the culprit. Again, the flavor was good and I’ll just have to learn more about baking influences.
    Not so great photos added.

    These came out great! I used a mixture of Butterfinger, Hershey bars and Nestle Crunch. They came out like good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies - chewy but crisp, and very sweet. I froze half the dough for Thanksgiving or Christmas! Thanks, Laurie!

    Ahaha..this makes me think of a recipe my MIL (for lack of a better word) sent me last Halloween that called for leftover SNICKERS. Really? Who in the world would have them leftover? ;-P

    Great idea, laurie - I wish I'd had this BEFORE I ate all the candy leftovers (but what a great excuse to go buy a couple more bags!!!).
