I've seen this done before with peanut butter cookie dough wrapped around miniature Snickers, but thought it would work just as well with other cookie bases and candies subbed in. Actually what led to this experiment was that I found some Dove chocolates that I had forgotten about - and if you know me, you know how rare that is for me to forget about chocolate!!! Anyway, the chocolates had gotten a little hard, but I wasn't about to waste them so I decided to use them in these cookies.
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
12 pieces of unwrapped chocolate, I used Dove
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together butter and sugars until thoroughly combined.
2. Whisk in egg, vanilla, soda, powder, and salt.
3. Stir in flour until just combined.
4. Take 1 Tbls. of dough and place on greased or parchment-lined baking sheets. Place 1 chocolate in center, then drop another Tbls. of dough on top and form it around the chocolate so it's not at all visible. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.
On a Side Note: We're sleep-training Aiden via the Ferber method - NOT fun, but it worked great with Asher and has been working well with Aiden so far, too. More specifics on that in the next post! Here's a pic of the patio we put in about a month ago. Huge upgrade from what it used to be.
