Half-Pound Chocolate Chip Snickers Cookies
Slightly adapted from Cookies and Cups
1 cup cold butter cubed
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cold eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 frozen Snicker bars, grated (See Note)
Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream butter and sugars together at medium speed for two minutes. Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and mix until combined.
Turn the mixer to low, and slowly add the flour, mixing until just combined. Add chocolate chips and chopped snicker bars, and mix until evenly incorporated.
Using a food scale measure out the dough into six equal portions of 8 ounces each. Form the dough into balls and place 4 inches apart on your prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until the bottoms are lightly browned and edges golden. Allow cookies to cool on a baking sheet for four minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
NOTE: I used a good quality boxed grater (see blog for the one I used) in order to grate the Snicker bars. Make sure to use frozen bars, although it seemed to me that grating them got a little easier as they thawed a tiny bit, but you certainly don't want to try this with a Snicker that hasn't been frozen.
