Cookies. What can is say… I love making cookies! A while back I came across a recipe for Kit Kat Cookies and thought, now that’s interesting, chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips! So of course I had to try them.
While I was out to buy my Kit Kat Bars I came across 2 great finds.
One: I didn’t need to buy the bars because they now sell these bags of Kit Kat Bits. Perfect for cookies! Score.
Two: They make a few different chocolate bars as “Bites”. Yay! So I grabbed Kit Kat ones and Coffee Crisp…
The first time I made them I just dumped the bag of kit kat bites in the cookie dough bowl. But when I started to make the cookies with my cookie scoop I could tell that the “bites” were a little bit big. But that didn’t stop me. I made them anyway. And they were good! I couldn’t wait to try them again with the Coffee Crisp Bites.
So a few days later I started making the Coffee Crisp ones. When it came time to add the Coffee Crisp I grabbed my meat tenderizer/ hammer, I let the air out of the bag (re sealed it) put it on the floor an smashed them a few times to break up the balls. Dumped them in the dough and scooped out my cookies! Awesome! They were even BETTER then the Kit Kat ones! (I like Coffee Crisp better then Kit Kat ha ha)
I have now made these cookies at least 2 dozen times. I send them in large batches to work with my Hubs and I give them to friends. People love them! And the possibilities are endless! Just take any chocolate bar and crush it up a bit and add to your cookies! Yum!
Coffee Crisp 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 pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup Coffee Crisp (Bites or Bars)
. Cream butter and both sugars until combined. Add egg and vanilla.
. Add flour, baking soda, and salt.
. Mix until combined. Add crushed up Coffee Crisp
. Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment
. Scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls or use a cookie scoop and place two inches apart on cookie sheet.
. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. 10 minutes will be slightly underdone (the way I love them) but if you like a more done cookie, let them bake an extra minute or two. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from pans to cool completely.
I have a big passion for photography. My dad is a photographer and I grew up playing in his darkroom when I was little. Yes darkroom! Before the digital take over. I also have a passion for cooking and baking. Now it’s a mystery where this love comes from because my mom hates cooking! She does however make some awesome christmas treats.
Hopefully in sharing some of my experience and recipes, I can inspire you to take some time and make something delicious.
From my kitchen to yours, bon appétit.
