These cookies are the bomb diddly, or in other words, they are simply amazing!
Chock-full of peanut butter cups, chocolate chunks, and candy pieces, they just might knock your socks off.
Since tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, I used leprechaun green m&m's but regular is just fine. Here's the Recipe.
Knock Your Socks Off Cookies

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter

2 cups peanut butter cups, cut in half

Cream shortening, butter, and peanut butter until nice and smooth. Add sugar and beat until well incorporated. Mix in eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Add the flour until just incorporated. Fold in candy, and chocolate chunks. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until slightly brown.
