Any cookie named "Yummy Yum-Yum's" had to be saved before I even read the recipe, Kimmi! Then, when I saw that one of the ingredients was Peanut Butter Crunch...well, it's an automatic keeper.

I think the only reason my husband is sorry the kids grew up is that he has no excuse to buy Cap'n Crunch P'nut Butter Crunch cereal. That has to be his all-time favorite food. He would sneak the box off to bed with him. Literally. I'd find pieces of the cereal down at the foot of the bed when I changed the sheets! I still have to drag him out of the cereal aisle saying, "You're a diabetic!" LOL!

This will be my early Christmas gift to him. I'll "let" him make a batch of these cookies. He will be over the moon with joy! Thanks for sharing!

Our neighbor made them for us twice. The first batch, I think I ate most of them (in one day...shhh!) & the second batch I think I let Dad have more of them. I have asked her for the recipe....I think 5 times until she finally gave it to me....but without a name! I couldn't think of anything but Yummy Yum-Yum's. LOL! They are great & will go fast, I suggest making doulbe batches!

The problem with doubling this kind of recipe is getting it out of the bowl and onto the waxed paper before it hardens...it's difficult with a SINGLE recipe. I wonder how it would work to put it in a pan and cut it into squares?

BTW, my husband says to send you his love! ♥♥♥ :D ♥♥♥

Yeah that's true. I don't know, she always made them the way they are. But I don't think that would harm anything....
