Chocolate Chip Twix Cookies

May 12, 2011 in cookies - 3 Comments - 2 min read

My husband and I love Costco.  We were there not too long ago and bought a selection (or package, I should say) of various candy bars–Snickers, Twix, 3 Musketeers, oh my!  I’ve buried them in my closet, so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat them all, but I recently just “rediscovered” them.  Today was the perfect day to make candy bar cookies, as I was in the mood for a small dose of chocolate and hadn’t had a cookie in who knows when, but the hardest part I had was whether to use Snickers bars or Twix bars.  I settled on the Twix, since they are more my weakness than Snickers.  (Less in the pantry that way.)  Such chocolatey, caramel goodness. 

The three main ingredients, apart from the traditional chocolate chip cookie, are these:

In a food processor, scoop out 2 cups of oats.

Blend them for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

The oats should be superfine, like all-purpose flour.

Set it in a bowl with flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  Mix to combine.  (I forgot to take a picture of this, but you get it.)

Using a mixer, cream 1 cup butter, with a cup each of sugar and brown sugar.

Mix long enough so it’s light and fluffy.  Scrape down the bowl if necessary.

Add 2 eggs and vanilla.  Mix just enough so that there are no traces of egg.

Then gently add the dry ingredients.  (Oops, I forgot to take a picture of this step as well.  Ummm…you get the idea.)

Chop up 3 Twix candy bars.

FOLD that and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in the batter, and using a cookie scoop, place onto a cookie sheet.

Bake, and then while they’re still warm, enjoy with a glass of milk.  Life is good!
