Take 5 Cookies
Ok, obviously these are not Whole30 approved. But, I am fulfilling my “Big Sister of the Year” duties, and made these Take 5 cookies, along with Fruity Pebble Rice Krispie Treats, for my brother. This weekend is family weekend down at ISU, and what kind of big sister am I if I don’t bring him down a care package?
I was going to initially write that Take 5 was my favorite candy bar. Being honest, though, I don’t discriminate. Queen of the Sweet Tooth over here.
These cookies are probably one of the best things I have ever made. These, my breakfast pizza and my frozen prosecco slushies might be my top three favorite things I’ve made.
The cookies are so so so rich, and have so many elements that all work together so nicely. The pretzels don’t get all mushy and gross, they stay salty and crunchy while the chocolate chips and butterscotch morsels get all melty and delicious.
