This is a great recipe, from my sister Chris she found it on sallysbakingaddiction.com... It is a basic oatmeal raisin cookie with the addition of cut-up candy bar,nuts and raisins, but you can use any candy bar you like and just chop them up, freeze them and use in this cookie recipe. Your kids are going to love these- your big kid too(hubby). LOL
