Peanut 2X Butter Finger Cookies

So, I felt like being creative today. I think it was semi-successful…but there was a problem. See, i’m stuffing 125 dozen eggs for my mother’s office Easter Egg hunt. Yes, 125 dozen. It’s overwhelming. But the thing is, it comes with it’s perks. No, I’m not talking about my aching fingers from trying to shut each and every egg and then the eggs coming apart when I put them in the bin. I’m talking about the candy! $300 worth of candy. It’s amazing. My whole kitchen table is filled with bags and bags of Easter delight. So the creative part works in when i realized that I wanted to make some kind of candy cookie. But, I had too much to choose from, it was so difficult, I’m really not good with choices. But…I managed…and here’s what I decided on.
