Brown Butter Chocolate Candy Surprise Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chopped assorted candy bars (I used Rollos, Snickers, Twix, Three Musketeers, Symphony bars, and Hershey's bars)
  1. Directions:
  2. Preheat oven to 350 and grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Begin by melting your butter in a small sauce pan over low heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the butter stops foaming has reached a deep brown/amber color and smells like toffee/nuts.
  4. Pour butter into a large bowl, and add sugars. Whisk until smooth.
  5. Add the eggs one a time, mixing until fully incorporated.
  6. Beat in the vanilla and mix until light and fully.
  7. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk until just combined.
  8. Dump in the candy bar bits and mix for another couple of seconds to combine.
  9. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto your baking sheet.
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. (Cookies will be puffy straight out of the oven, and will settle down into nooks/crannies as they cool.)
  12. Enjoy warm or cold, with a cold glass of milk!
