I'm back today with a great cookie recipe that you have to make on your next day off. These cookies are the perfect chocolate chip cookie with a twist of dark chocolate chunks, marshmallows, and crunchy Skor bits.
They are a TREAT. That's all.
Yield: 12 cookies
Prep time: 15 min
Bake time: 15 min
Total time: 2.5 hours
2/3 cup butter, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup dark chocolate chunks (chocolate chips are fine)
1/3 cup Skor bits
2/3 cup marshmallows
Bring a small saucepan to medium heat. When hot, place the butter in the saucepan and let melt and bring it to a bubble. Once the butter foams on top and a nutty smell forms, remove from heat.
In a stand mixer or medium mixing bowl, add the eggs, vanilla, and browned butter. Mix or whisk the ingredients together.
Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugars to the egg mixture and mix together.
Once blended together, add the chocolate chunks, Skor bits, and marshmallows and mix into the dough just until mixed into the dough.
Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap or another seal wrap.
Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Bring your oven to 350 degrees and roll the cookies into 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized balls and place on cookie sheets - be sure not to crowd them, they're going to get big. Let the cookie dough warm up while your oven preheats.
Place in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Bring the cookies out and let them settle on the cookies sheets for 10 minutes before transferring to the cooling racks.
I tried to make these cookies 24-hour cookies so I tried baking half of the batch only 2 hours after refrigerating the dough on the same day and then refrigerating the other half for 24 hours before baking. The ones that were cooled for 24 hours were a bit less chewy and flatter than the other ones.
The cooling for a couple of hours does help a bit as the cookies are a bit chewier than if I were to just bake right away. IF you don't have time, then, of course, I'm sure they would still be tasty without cooling. If you try that, let me know!
If you're wondering where I got this recipe from, my sister, Sarah, told me about 2 days ago that she wanted S'more cookies with Skor bits...kind of a random combination but I have to say that they're pretty good. The marshmallow and Skor bits melt a bit to make the cookies gooier on the inside and the outside more crunchy.
Thanks for checking out this recipe! Stay tuned this week for a different type of blog post coming - it's not a recipe but I think some of you will find it quite useful.
Anyway, if you try this out, be sure to let me know and even better, send me some pics!
Have a great week ahead! :)
