It's September, that means it's birthday month. My birthday was last week, my Dad's was Tuesday and yesterday was the Hubby's.
I always like to make something for the Hubby on his birthday. He will eat cake if we are somewhere like a wedding, but not very often does he just want a piece of cake. He likes brownies, cookies, and candy bars.
For his birthday this year I decided to combine two of his favorites: chocolate chip cookies and Kit Kat candy bars!
This cookie is sweet, chewy, and delicious!
Happy birthday honey!
Kit Kat Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 snack size Kit Kat bars, chopped in thirds
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Start out by creaming together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
While that is working in the mixer, in a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set this bowl to the side.
Now that your butter and sugars are creamed together, add your egg and mix until completely incorporated. Then add your vanilla.
Turn down your mixer while you add your dry ingredients (otherwise you and your kitchen will be covered in white...not that I know by experience or anything!).
Once this is just combined, add your Kit Kat's and chocolate chips. The mixer will break up the Kit Kat bars into smaller chunks. If you don't want to use any chocolate chips, bump up your Kit Kat amount or maybe you like white chocolate chips or maybe you want to use the white chocolate Kit Kat bars... the combinations are endless!
Once everything is incorporated, cover your mixture and chill for a couple hours in the refrigerator.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. (as you notice I had ran out and forgotten to buy more! OOPS!)
Scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls (I used my ice cream scoop to portion it out).
Bake these for about 10-12 minutes. I recommend 10 minutes. The cookies will look slightly underdone, but you will have carry over cooking and it will give you a moist, chewy cookie.
Let them cool on the pans for a few minutes, before transferring them to cooling racks. This should get you about 22-24 cookies.
Then you can enjoy these with a cold glass of milk!
Until next time,
