Twix Chocolate Chip Cookies

Necessity is the mother of invention. It's true, it's a thing. And I'm not saying I NEEDED chocolate chip cookies today, but I needed chocolate chip cookies today. It became a necessity. But I didn't have enough chocolate chips to fulfill my craving. I DID have some fun sized Twix.

Enter the invention. I had my boyfran chop up those Twix bars and I combined that with the chocolate chips I did have and BAM.

Something better than I could have even dreamed- Twix chocolate chip cookies. Now for the difficult part. Do I take the extras to work? Or eat them ravenously for the next week?

I'm thinking the latter.




-Ingredients-

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 egg (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp hot water
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped candy bars (Such as Twix or Snickers)- chop it to the size of chocolate chips

-Directions-

1. Cream together the butter and the sugars. Add the egg and mix until well incorporated. Stir in vanilla.
2. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Pour into mix. Add salt.
3. Fold in flour, chocolate chips and candy bar.
4. Refrigerate dough for an hour.
5. Preheat oven to 350*.
6. Drop dough by tablespoons onto baking sheet- they spread out a lot so don't put them too close together!
7. Bake 10-12 minutes in a preheated oven.
8. Take out when golden around the edges. When you take them out, tap the pan on the counter a little bit. It will take the air out and make them chewy in the middle. (Or you can be like me and just DROP the pan on the counter from about a foot. It startles everyone and results in instant gratification.)
9. Let cool, remove, repeat. The recipe makes 2 dozen cookies.
