These remind me a little of the now well-known featured on Regis and Kelly Compost Cookies by Momofuku's Milk Bar. No, they don't have potato chips or pretzels in them but they sure have a ton of other delicious goodies including nuts, dried fruit, coconut and 2 whole cups of chocolate chunks.
Tremendously versatile and adaptible to whatever you have on hand, these were a pleasure to make. The combination of textures and contrast of colors also makes them look pretty on a platter. I made the recipe into bars instead of cookies because I prefer the chewier, moister texture of a bar and the ease of stacking them for easy transport and serving. It's so much harder to over-bake a bar than a cookie.
For the recipe and to see what she baked up, visit TWD's Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet.
