Usually I take my inspiration from one ingredient in particular from that stash and build around it. This time, I wanted to use as many of them as possible at once. The first thing that sprang to mind was just to do a cookie packed with candy. I knew that basically I was just making chocolate chip cookies with candy pieces instead of chips, but I went ahead and followed a recipe to make sure I kept the ratio of dough to mix-ins reasonable.
Such a simple cookie. A perfect milk-dunking cookie. Or coffee-dunking, I guess, since there isn't a milk machine at the office. These things disappeared! It just goes to show, you don't have to obsess over an intricate recipe using expensive ingredients. Sometimes you can just make a cookie.
Candy Bar Cookies
(made about 60 cookies)
Recipe from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice. The only change I really made was to make mine about half the size. Here's the candy I used included:
- Peanut M&Ms
- Pretzel M&Ms
- Milk Duds
- Milky Way
- Almond Kisses
- Tootsie Rolls
- Lump of Coal crispy chocolate
- other plain chocolate bars cut into chunks
