CAFE SPECIAL OF THE WEEK - Snickerlicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you've been stopping in at the Cafe for a while, you know I like no-fuss, yummy comfort foods. Today's special does the trick for me. Melt-in-your mouth chocolate (ahhhhhh . . .) and so simple even a caveman could do it, providing of course, he could figure out how to rub the sticks together to start a fire.

Many thanks to my friend, Gayla Busch, who first taught me this recipe. Trust me, she's no cavemistress, but one of the loveliest, most talented people on the planet. Very bossy as a dance instructor for the many two-left-footed folks she's directed in church musicals, but someone I'm fortunate to call friend. Now, for the cookies . . .


One roll of your favorite refrigerated chocolate-chip cookie dough

One bag of "bite-size" Snickers candy bars

Cut the Snickers bars in half and wrap each bite-sized morsel with one spoonful of cookie dough so that you form a ball. Place two inches apart on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until the cookies are lightly browned (10 to 12 minutes). Cool slightly before removing from sheet.

You'll be tempted to eat one as soon as they're baked, but restrain yourself! The chocolate and caramel swirl are HOT. Chewy, luscious, and perfect for the chocolate lover in your life! Who knows? You may even feel like dancing!!!
