Although I have been baking these cookies at least three or four years, I have never actually posted the recipe or even written it down. I do want to share these with you all because they are that good. I will not take all the credit for these wondrously delicious cookies, as they are a mish-mosh of sorts, a perfected finale of past failures in the kitchen. Ladies and gentlemen, without further adieu, I present to you...
Snickers and Twix Cookies
adapted from Nestle Toll House
Back in the way back, when I knew nothing about baking, I would buy a bag of the Nestle Toll House Semi-sweet chocolate chips and make the recipe for the cookies on back. Sometime around my 100th batch, I had an epiphany and some left over Halloween candy. The cookies you see below were the result. You see, the original recipe calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips, but ya girl only had a slim half-cup (late night snacking--don't ask) and had to improvise. What does a girl do when she is low on chocolate chips? Rummage through cabinets for something that will suffice because you already have the mixer going, beating the heck outta your butter. You find that lone, half eaten bag of Snickers and Twix bars and get to chopping. Then you have another epiphany! What if I add in something spicy, something cinnamony? I just happened to have some left over cinnamon chips from my chewy peanut butter cookies (I'll post that one later) and wanted to see if they'd do these bad boys any justice. And oh yeah baby, they did.
One more thing...we (my family) generally eat very wholesome food, definitely homemade and very little eating out. BUT, we do indulge and do NOT ever feel guilty about it. That being said, I am now making these with organic cane sugar, organic flour, butter, eggs, and when I put my foot in it--that's organic too. Kidding.
