After dropping the cookie dough onto cookie sheets, let kids arrange additional candy-coated peanut butter pieces on top of the dough.
Instead of candy-coated peanut butter pieces and salted peanuts, use your favorite small candies and nuts. Try candy-coated chocolate pieces and coarsely chopped walnuts.
