Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until blended.
Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in cookies, candy bars, and desired amount of chocolate morsels. Chill dough 30 minutes.
Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 2" apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until barely set. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
I have made these cookies many times - they never fail to be a favorite for work events, etc. I use Snickers instead of Mounds because I'm never sure who likes coconut, and I like the caramel from the Snickers. I also use part chocolate chips & part toffee chips, which is really good. These are definitely rich and full of chocolate.
Awesome cookies! I rolled into large balls and flattened slightly. Cooked 11 minutes and they were perfect. Lightly crispy outside, moist inside. I used dark chocolate Mounds and dark cocoa. Very rich. A chocolate lovers dream of a cookie!
These were the most delicious and decadent cookies I had all year!
I used Milk Way instead of Mounds and used the chocolate and vanilla (half and half) creme filled cookies.
I have been asked to make them again, I see myself at the store on the way home!
