Crystal Adams Sweet Tooth Palooza Cookies!!!

Crystal’s Sweet Tooth Palooza Cookies

Greetings from the Ozarks, not the Missouri side where the cool cats live but here in Arkansas where no one’s in a hurry and everyone knows your name.  You know that song by Miranda Lambert about everyone dying famous in a small town? That would be us.  Thankfully my daughter’s claim to fame is nothing scandalous and fun to make.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (I use baking powder)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ bag chocolate chips
  • Small bag (small size) Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • Chocolate M&M’s (1/2 a medium size bag)
  • Three or four shakes of Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl and set aside.

In a small bowl break up Reese’s (try not to eat too many) add M&M’s, chocolate chips and the Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits. Set aside and DON’T touch… ok just a few.

In a large bowl beat soft butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

 Stir in what you haven’t eaten from the candy bowl.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. It’s a good idea to let them cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes and then remove to wire racks to cool completely. That’s doesn’t happen at my house. Enjoy! They taste like hot chocolate and go great with milk.



    You guys are killing me!!! I swear I'm going to ehad into the kitchen at 1AM and start makin' me some cookies!!!
    My mouth is watering. YUMMY...

    1. Seriously is like the anti diet poster child.

      Miss. I'll take a dozen please. No,not to go. I'll eat them all right here.

  2. P.S. Love the wooden spoon, although it reminds me of getting wacked as a kid. *ouch*

    But what kind of bowl is that second one? Is that stone? Very pretty!

  3. My husband teases me for reaching for a wooden spoon when ever I bake. It is a pretty bowl isn't it? But it's only plastic. It's hard to look at those pictures and not make cookies.

  4. Those cookies make me want to run into the kitchen and start eati...uh...baking.

    But we're out of milk. Gotta have milk with warm cookies. Yum!!!

    (Virginia, just read your comment as I was about to send mine. lol We are SO easily lead. Especially when it comes to cookies!)

    1. Oh my stars, you guys are EASY.

      But cookies.... And cookies that look like THIS????

      Oh mylanta, Jamie, you have made me want to pull out the mixing bowl. Oh, yum.

  5. wow don't think I'd make the first bowl - just mix the 2nd and start eating..can't keep those ingredients in the house or I'll eat 'em!

  6. One of those pics reminds me of something I saw on Martha Stewart one day. She was mixing sugar and butter and said that moment was her weakness. She just wanted to get a spoon and chow down!

    So funny to hear it in her calm, cool Martha Stewart voice.

    1. Hey, do you guys ever make butter balls for bread pudding? 3 parts sugar to 1 part butter....

      Mix with wooden spoon.

      Form into balls and refrigerate. Thrust into squares of hot bread pudding and allow to melt....

      Oh my stars, ooey gooey delicious goodness.

      Now I am officially starving.

      Rather ridiculous, but true!

    2. Ooooh. Remember the Entenmann's German Butter Cake? This gives me an idea for how to make a homemade version. Yum.

    3. And then you come here and share it, right???? I love Entenmann's Danish and Kuchens.... Oh my stars, I'm getting fat thinking of it! And up here, Wegman's Food Markets has a delectable custard filled coffee cake with streusel topping. My cake never quite comes out like theirs.... But my custard is better, so it evens out! :)

      So delicious.

      We need to perfect these, Mare!!!

  7. My son loves chocolate chip cookie dough. When he was little he'd ask me to let him eat a bowl of it instead of cooking them.I never did, talk about too much of a good thing.

    1. We had a 5th grade teacher who loved raw cookie dough. I would send her some nearly every week...



      I think not! :)

  8. Susanna, we don't usually have all that candy in our house either. It wouldn't make it a day... an hour lol

  9. Oh merciful heavens but that looks good!!!!!!!!! I'd have to store up on a few all that candy...before I can try this recipe out. I'm adding it to next week's grocery list now! And I love mixing with woodens spoons too. I don't have any fancy dancy mixer thingys it just my old wooden spoon and muscle. :-)

  10. Oh. My. Goodness!!!! Candy-filled cookies! Is that not THE best combination ever??? The recipes this week have been wonderful, but this one takes the cake. Oh, did I just say that? Rewind. "...but this one is better than cake."

    I don't have the ingredients on hand, but unlike Kav I have no intention of waiting until next week to get them. I'm heading off to the grocery store this afternoon so I can make me some to help celebrate our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend.

    1. Carol, happy Thanksgiving!!! Enjoy, and what a good complement these are to any feast...

      What do you serve at Canadian Thanksgiving?

      Besides yummy cookies?

  12. Kav - I've always thought a mixer would be nice to have but I'm with you on the wooden spoon and muscles.

    Carol - Crystal is thrilled to know her cookies will be eaten by the folks up in Canada!

    Pam - Crystal says milk is not a must but they do go well together. (she says you can try them with kool-aid but don't dunk 'em)

  13. Jamie, were these the ones you made for our Genesis/Carol viewing party? The marshmallows were kind of a giveaway.

    Thanks for sharing. The cookies look delicious. I'm eating an oatmeal chocolate chip walnut cookie that I got at the greenmarket today. I know you're supposed to buy greens, but I head for the baked goods.

    1. Oh, honey... I go to the apple farm for their bakery.


      Great minds think alike, LOL!

  14. Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all our Canadian friends. I'm curious. Is your Thanksgiving menu anything like the US one?

  15. I love cookies! These look so good! =)

  16. After 10 hours in the car, we get to Des Moines, and I see this recipe.

    I have a microwave and a mini-fridge. How am I going to make these????

    Oh, wait, I'll be home next week. My family will LOVE these :)
