Hello fellow foodies!

 

By social media, I found out you all love cookies! (But, who doesn't?) Especially chocolate chip cookies without nuts or foo-foo. Of course, what is better than a classic chocolate chip cookie on a warm, sunny afternoon? 

 

 What combines well with cookies? Candy bars! Check out this super easy recipe that features candy bar inside a classic chocolate chip cookie. Not really diggin' the candy bar feels? No problem, you can easily substitute your favorite nut or another flavored chocolate (say, white chocolate or peanut butter chips).
