In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels, potato chips, pretzel pieces and peanuts. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.

Personal Notes:
I tasted these cookies at a party years ago and fell in love with them. I could not figure out what the ingredients were that made them so special. It took my friend one year to finally get the recipe for me and was I surprised when I saw the ingredients. I have made them many times since then. I often substitute white chocolate chips for the semi-sweet.
