Do you still have Halloween candy kickin' around? Ya, we do too. :) This week, with permission from our kids, I harvested all the boxes of Smarties (similar to original M&M's for you Americans) they had & made cookies with them. Our kids were pretty excited to help out & be able to contribute one of the yummy ingredients!
I promise you'll like these chewy, gooey, chocolatey cookies!
Chocolate Chip Candy Cookies
makes 2 dozen
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup Smarties or M&M's
Preheat oven to 350º F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter & sugars until fluffy & light in color. Add egg & vanilla & blend in.
Mix in dry ingredients & chocolate chips. Slowly stir in candies.
Using a tablespoon, drop dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just lightly browned.
Let cool, on the sheet for 5 minutes, then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Pour yourself a glass of milk & enjoy a couple. :)
