I highly recommend eating these with a nice big glass of cold milk. Nothing goes together with cookies like milk. Heck, I’d even pour it in a fancy wine glass, because I’m classy like that 😉
Tip: If these cookies last in your house more than a couple of days (which they really shouldn’t because everyone will love them so much they’ll gobble them right up), pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds to revive the ooey-gooey-chewy deliciousness!!
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup butter or margarine, softened
- ¾ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- ½ cup vanilla chips, plus more for topping
- 2 bars (1.5-2 ounces each) favorite chocolate candy (we used Snickers)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
- In a large bowl (or the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment), beat the butter and brown sugar until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla; beat well. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until combined.
- Roughly chop semi-sweet chocolate into chunks and add them, as well as the white chocolate chips, to the dough and stir.
- Using an ice cream scoop, drop 6 heaping scoops of dough, 3 inches apart, onto Silpat or parchment lined baking sheets. (Cookies will spread while baking.)
- Flatten scoops slightly with the palm of your hand.
- Cut Snickers (or other candy) into small pieces and lightly press them, along with the extra white chocolate chips, into the tops of the cookies.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes or until cookies are almost set. (Centers will be soft. Do not over bake.)
- Allow cookies to rest on baking sheet for 5-7 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
