Chocolate chip cookies are twice as nice when you use both milk chocolate bars and semisweet chocolate chunks.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (11.5-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chunks
2 (1.55-ounce) milk chocolate candy bars, grated
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
How to Make It
Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until blended.
Pulse oats in a food processor to a fine powder. Combine oats, flour, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chunks, grated chocolate bars, and pecans. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake at 375° for 10 to 14 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Hershey's milk chocolate candy bars.
Wow. These cookies are not for the faint of heart. They are intense! I made them to refute my roommates' assertion that everything I make "tastes healthy." And they do NOT TASTE HEALTHY : ) They're delicious. My roommates -- and my coworkers -- greatly appreciated these. They are a certain crowd pleaser!
These cookies are wonderful. I always get raves! I didn't use the candy bars but instead added 3/4 cup of Toffee pieces and 3/4 cup Reeces pieces. I have made toasting and not toasting the pecans and they were good either way. 14 min in my electric oven was perfect. Enjoy!
Unbelievable cookies! My husband begrudgingly admitted they were better than his Mom's Toll House cookes. The texture is hearty and crisp, and the chocolate was just right. Didn't change a thing, except forgot to toast the pecans which didn't seem to matter. I made the dough the day before I baked them. My batches took exactly 12 mins to be perfectly crispy and delicious. Enjoy!!!
WOW! This is our new favorite cookie recipe! I was looking for something new to try and stumbled upon this recipe. I made it and everyone raved. For my son who hates chocolate, I made a tray of the cookies using the dough before adding the pecans and two chocolates- those were delicious too. My brother, who is not a big dessert lover, called and said he was eating these cookies for dinner.
