Everything But The Kitchen Sink Cookies

Compost Cookies

I’m sure you’re heard of these cookies before. Some call them garbage cookies, others compost cookies, and on and on. I like to call them Everything but the kitchen sink cookies, because well you can put just about everything but the kitchen sink in them ; ) I’m sure I’ll be whipping up another batch with all of the leftover Easter candy ; )

They’re salty and sweet bites of deliciousness that use up whatever you might have on hand. I use my basic chocolate chip cookie recipe {sometimes with or without the chocolate chips added} and then add in about 1 1/2 -2  cups of whatever else is laying around. Pretzels, potato chips, raising, candy bits, you name it it’s fair game. Today’s version I used Chow Mein noodles, hazelnuts and Rolo chocolates…

And somehow in the end it all just works…It’s a tasty mystery!
