Leftover Chip CookiesPosted by Cupcake Kelly on Jun 26, 2013 in Cookies | Comments Off on Leftover Chip Cookies
This month’s book club selection is Leftovers. The story is about a woman named Susie, who at 30, feels she’s a Leftover. Stuck in a dead end job, not married, can’t get over an ex. Some parts of her life are a mess but she knows she wants to work in food.
Susie has a passion for Italian food but she does make a few mouth watering desserts to take in and share with her mates in the office. In honor of the book I thought I would make a delicious, soft buttery cookie but fill it with all my kitchen Leftovers.
My American baking ingredients are very precious so I always keep every last drop. Over time these have accumulated and I had about three or four half bags and handfuls of miscellaneous chips and candies. I used peanut butter chips, cappuccino chips, mini M&M’s, toffee pieces and candy corn M&M’s.
These cookies are very fun. Each bite had a different flavor. Don’t give up on leftovers they just need some creative inspiration! Use any combination your desire.
