Well, like I said, I was going to be making and posting more sweet recipes with my leftover chocolate bars. These cookies were the first to pop to my mind! They’re so good. And GIANT. Who doesn’t like giant cookies?! Especially when they’re chocolate chip… with Snickers. I really can’t turn those down, people. Not when they have Snickers in them, okay? Okay.
Plus, it’s Friday movie night here at my house, so what’s a movie without a sugary treat? I’m allowed to eat one.. or two. Although I really shouldn’t. I already ate too many sweets this week with a birthday party and all, and I may have eaten 75% of the fudge I made. Yeah. Maybe I shouldn’t eat a cookie. Actually you know what? I’m going to eat a darn cookie.
Ugh. The struggle is real, y’all.
But yeah, these are seriously the best cookies I’ve made so far. Just one weighs like half a pound but, who cares. Make these cookies. They’re good. The center is the best cause that’s where the party is at!
Just so you get the idea of how they looked before the oven, here you go! They’re pretty easy. once you get it in a ball you just press them down slightly and throw them in the oven till the edges are slightly golden. This recipe makes exactly 12 cookies if you shape the dough into the right size.
I also may have taken waaaay too many pictures of these cookies, only cause they’re just so photogenic, ha!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 sticks butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cups brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 4 regular sized snickers bars, each cut into thirds
- 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, or lightly grease without the paper.
- 2. Chop the four snickers bars into thirds, you should have enough for 12 cookies.
- 3. Sift together the flour, almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- 4. With an electric mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar till fluffy. Add vanilla. Scrape down the sides and then add eggs, one at a time, until incorporated.
- 5. Add flour mixture in 3 batches, beating each addition till just mixed in, about 17 seconds each. Mix in the chocolate chips until incorporated.
- 6. Evenly divide the dough into two separate bowls. With the first bowl, scoop out twelve dough balls, they should be slightly smaller than a golf ball. Place them on the baking sheet, spacing each one about 2 1/2 inches apart. Place the chopped Snickers pieces on each dough ball. Now using the second bowl of dough, repeat the process as you did with the first bowl, making 12 dough balls, this time place each ball ontop of the other dough pieces, and sandwitch them together, with the snickers in the center. Shape each piece into a ball and slightly press down with your hands. When they're all pressed down, place them in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- 7. When they come out of the fridge, bake them for 10-15 minutes until the edges are slightly brown.
- 8. When done, let them sit on the baking sheet for 3 minutes before placing them on a rack to cool.
- 9. Cool on racks for 20 minutes and then enjoy them with a tall glass of milk!
