I started participating in a cookie exchange 3 years ago with my neighbour and her circle of friends. The first year I had NEVER done an exchange before, read the instructions wrong, and didn't make enough cookies. I was soooo embarrassed. I was also completely shocked when I was asked back the next year! And thank goodness I was because someone makes these every year and I realllllly wanted the recipe!
I asked her what they were called and how to make them and I've made them several times since. The combination of the sweet chocolate and salty chips and peanuts is ADDICTIVE. You've been warned...
2 10 oz bags semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 10 oz bag peanut butter chips
2 cups roasted salted peanuts
1 bag (7oz) plain rippled potato chips
1. In a double boiler melt the chocolate and peanut butter chips together.
2. In a seperate bowl add the peanuts and crushed potato chips.
3. Pour the chocolate mixture over the chip/peanut mixture and mix to coat thoroughly.
4. Drop by the tablespoonful into waxed paper lined baking sheets and refrigerate until set.
Store in the fridge.
Makes about 6 dozen.
