Amazing!

I liked how these cookies were still soft a couple of days later. They didn't spread a lot when they were cooked. Everyone who has tried them liked them. Most people have come back for seconds.

Everyone Loved Them

Took no time at all for cookies to be gone. I'll defintely be making these again. Very addictive.

Every bit as addictive as "kiss" cookies!

We LOVE traditional "kiss" cookies which have a similar taste. This is a fun variation! I ended up improvising a lot this time...I didn't have butterscotch morsels, so I mixed the semi -sweet and white morsels half and half (not realizing the white were suppose to be saved for drizzling later). I rolled the finished cookies in sugar before baking thinking I wouldn't have anything to drizzle...but I ended up with extra "filling" (6 kids and a husband eating too much dough) so I melted that and drizzled it on the tops. Overall, it worked out to get creative :) This is definitely a cookie that takes time and gets a little messy...but it's worth it! Make sure to have lots of cold milk on hand! Dieters...BEWARE!!!

great grab & go cookie

Took these to my Company's picnic and everyone loved them, the best part was that you could and they did grab a handfull and go on to something else. Great flavor and all the different chips added to the wonderful taste, will make these often.
