That’s all I need to say about these cookies, but I will say a little more, so you get the picture.

When trying to figure out what I was going to blog next, I realized I haven’t blogged about cookies yet. My kids love cookies and they love helping me make cookies, so today I had 2 little helpers in the kitchen. Having helpers means disappearing ingredients as well.  They were excited when I brought out the Rolo candies and of course tasted a few.

Have you ever had a Take 5 Candy Bar?  If not you’re missing out. These cookies have all the ingredients in a Take 5 candy bar and taste just like them. I love the use of Rolos. I had bought some Rolos for my daughters golden birthday and didn’t use them all. I set off to Pinterest to find a cookie recipe that I could use the Rolos in. I found this recipe over at a blog called Gather for Bread. Once I saw the combination of caramel and pretzels I was sold and set off to find the rest of the ingredients in my kitchen.
