Twix Cookies

Obviously I like baking with candy bars.

It’s delicious.

And an excuse to buy candy bars.

And a way to use up candy bars after Halloween.  I’m just helping you pre-plan for that.

These Twix cookies are easier than the Snickers cookies as I just stirred the Twix into the batter.  So if you don’t like the peanuts in Snickers, go for these Twix cookies!  I preferred them regardless!

Twix Cookies

Recipe slightly adapted from The Smart Cookie Cook

Ingredients:

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 mini Twix, chopped
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Instructions:

Melt your butter and set it aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set bowl aside.

In your mixer, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and your melted butter.  Add in the whole egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract.  Beat well.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet.  Beat at low speed just until combined.

By hand, stir in the chopped Twix, milk chocolate chips, and semi-sweet mini chocolate chips.

Chill the dough in the refrigerator for an hour.

Preheat oven to 325.

Use a cookie scoop to place spoonfuls of dough on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.  Bake about 15 to 18 minutes until the cookies are light golden brown.
