I have a family full of boys that love sweet and salty food items. Bacon and maple syrup, eggs and honey, trail mix......salted nut roll candy bars! Okay, so they've never actually had a salted nut roll candy bar but they have had the homemade kind - and love them!

The homemade nut rolls I make have always been in bar form using a cake mix for the base layer. I wanted the bite size form of the bar that we all love but didn't want to use a cake mix. I also didn't have a cake mix so.......Viola! The salted nut roll cookie was born.

They still have all the splendor of a nut roll (bar or candy bar form) disguised as a cookie in perfect proportion. It's also a lot less mess when it comes time for clean up!

**In addition to the two following recipes you will need salted peanuts and sea salt.

I could have guessed this was yours with that absolutely perfect cookie picture as the thumbnail! Gorgeous and sounds amazing! My husband would LOVE if I stopped making chocolate cookies...he's a hater. :)

They taste amazing too!
Oh my! I really want to make these! Do you think you could just use peanut butter instead of peanut butter chips?
wold630 (author)  Penolopy Bulnick1 year ago
I think peanut butter would work just the same and be equally as delicious! Let me know what you think if you make them. I don't think you will be disappointed!! Especially if you love salted nut rolls as much as I do!
