Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins
- 1 cup salted butter
- 3⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 6 ounces roughly chopped candy bars (use amount and kind you prefer)
- 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 2. Cream together the butter and the sugars until fluffy, beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour with the baking powder and salt mixed inches Stir until blended. Fold in gently the chopped candy bars. If desired, add a cup of chopped almonds, walnuts, pecans or other nut.
- 3. Drop on a cookie sheet in the size you wish and bake until edges are browned nicely in the middle of the oven (ten minutes or less). Transfer to a cooling rack. From here they disappeared so I can't tell you shelf life but assume these will freeze nicely and ship well.
Love these cookies! Absolutely delicious way to get rid of Halloween chocolate. One thing that did not work, however, were the Milk Duds. I put some in the dough and they melted and leaked out of the cookies. Other than that, though, these were fabulous! Thanks for the great idea.
