Tuesday Cook Off ~ Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

My youngest son just loves Snicker candy bars.   It’s a new love for him 🙂   Not that I am going to be buying Snicker candy bars a lot but when my friend gave me this recipe (and the cookies as a gift) I knew my youngest would be hooked.

So Monday when I was looking what to bake for the boy’s lunches, I thought of the recipe and decided to surprise my youngest.  He was very surprised and happy!  Normally, I bake for the boy’s lunches on Sunday but since we were in California all last week and didn’t get home until late Sunday afternoon, baking had to wait until Monday.

We went to Orange County and we did something we have never done before…whale watching.   I guess I should tell you we use to live in Orange County and our oldest son was born there.   Plus, we go there about 4 times a year.  It’s an easy drive from the Phoenix, AZ area and it’s a nice change of weather for us in the summer.  In all the years we lived in California and all the times we have visit, we have never gone whale watching.  We always talked about it but never went.  It was so worth it!  We saw all kinds of whales and dolphins.

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups light-brown sugar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt for 30 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy.

Bake in preheated oven 10 – 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool several minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
