Cookie Monster Temptation

The kids, at our church, are going to be running a lemonade stand at our community yard sale this coming Sat.  They will be giving out cookies and lemonade to all of you shoppers who want to swing by. And I am super excited !!!

1. I get to clean out my closet.  Excited? Yup! Now I will be able to shut the closet door without putting my back into it!

2. I love garage sales. I may invest in a Flyer wagon way before I have kids just for garage sale shopping.

3. Fresh Lemonade.  MMMMmmm:)

4.  Cookies…and I think I found the perfect recipe for all of you Cookie Monsters.

It all started with this Kid Candy Cookie recipe I found in the Food Network Magazine(below).  But, I didn’t have peanut butter chips, or bark bittersweet chocolate.  So I decided to just dump a whole bag of pretzel m&m’s in and 1 cup of chocolate chips leaving out the peanut butter chips and toffee.  I tested a cookie…and something was missing.  So I added two handfuls of toffee and tested a cookie.  Nope…something was still missing.  So I added (oh maybe 1/2 cup) peanut butter. And whoooaa that did it!!!  Amazing! But I seriously only recommend a 1 cookie serving because these cookies are loaded! I am sure these would be kid recommended and mother approved with an apple and good run around the back yard.
