Candy Bar Dessert Recipes

1: The ooey gooey caramel of the Rolo pieces makes these Peanut Butter Rolo Cookies so delicious! Eat while warm to savor the melted goodness inside.

2: These Mini Heath Bar Cheesecakes are perfect for a dinner party. I always love to serve individual desserts to guests, it makes them feel so special! The Heath Bar pieces on top really add that “crunch” and multiple flavor dimensions.

3: I remember when the Take 5 bar came out. I was SO excited, because it combined so many of my favorite things… peanut butter, chocolate, pretzels… These Take 5 Cookies are ah-maz-ing! I am hungry just looking at them!
