Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped Snickers candy bars*

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Combine the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium for 3 or 4 minutes, until very light and creamy.

  3. Beat in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla to combine.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Turn mixer to low and gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture until just combined.

  5. Use a rubber spatula to mix in the mini chocolate chips and chopped Snickers.
  6. Shape dough into balls of about 2 tablespoons of dough. (You should have about 34 dough balls.) Arrange on prepared baking sheets about 3 inches apart.

  7. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until light golden around the bottom edges. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then use a thin metal spatula to transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Uneaten cookies can be stored, layered with wax paper, in airtight containers at room temperature for 2 or 3 days. They can also be frozen in the same manner for about 2 months.
  • *You’ll need about 5 to 6 ounces of candy.
  • I don’t recommend using regular-size chocolate chips. The dough has a lot of mix-ins and if you use the regular ones the dough doesn’t hold together very well.
  • When you chop your candy bars, you can spray the knife with a little cooking spray to help prevent the caramel from sticking.
  • Be sure to grease your baking sheets well so the caramel from the Snickers bars doesn’t stick.
  • To freeze the dough, shape it into balls and arrange on parchment-lined baking sheets. Freeze for about 30 minutes, or until dough is firm. Transfer to freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months. Bake the cookies directly from the oven; you might need to add a minute or two to the baking time.
