Peanut butter lovers will surely flip when they bite into a freshly baked cookie featuring Reese’s Pieces candies. Their rich peanut butter flavor is the perfect accompaniment to the lightly sweet and buttery cookie.

M&M’s may not seem terribly different from milk chocolate chips, but their candy shell gives chocolate chip cookie a delightful crunch that is the perfect complement to a soft-baked cookie. Plus, their bright colors add a fun and festive flair that truly outshines plain chocolate chips.


English Toffee

Toffee is an absolutely delicious treat on its own, but inside a fresh-baked cookie, it’s heaven on Earth. The smooth, buttery flavor of the toffee blends perfectly with its rich chocolate coating and it all melts ever so slightly inside of the cookie for a delectable treat that can’t be beat.
