I found this recipe on another food blog, though I have to admit that I didn’t follow the preparation steps all that well. I sort of forged my own path.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt (omitted because we used salted butter)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 4 Snickers bars cut into smaller pieces (we only needed 3)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour and baking soda.
3. (In the original, it says to brown 10 tablespoons of the butter and then to melt the other 6 tablespoons into it. We just browned the whole cup of butter.)
4. After the butter has been browned (takes about 3 min until it gives off a nutty aroma; the skillet/pot has to be kept swirling constantly), transfer to a large bowl. Mix in sugar, brown sugar, salt (if using), vanilla and eggs. (At this point, the original recipe has a whisk 30 sec, rest 3 min pattern going, three repetitions, before adding the flour. I did not do this.) Add flour. When combined add chocolate chips.
5. (The original instructions were to flatten out a spoonful of dough, place a Snickers piece in the center and to fold the edges over. We just added some more cookie dough on top of the Snickers to cover it.)
6. Bake 10 to 14 min (ours only needed about 9 min).
Verdict: We made 50 cookies. And I am kind of dumb, because I forgot that Snickers has a kind of peanut buttery taste to it, which I don’t like, so these weren’t my favourite. But the actual cookie part was really good.
