Must... overdo.... everything.
Wanted to get 'rid' of the double chocolate cookie mixes in my pantry, but I also wanted to do something 'Red, White, & Blue' for the 4th. Eh- double it up :)
Make the 2 separate cookie doughs.
I made a double batch of both and ended up with 6 dozen cookies.
*Chocolate Chunk cookies- Follow package directions, put in a bowl to the side for later.
For the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies I have EVER made- (The top portion of these cookies):
You'll need the following:
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp powder
1/3 C (3/4 stick) Real Butter
3/4 stick/tray shortening
1/2 C White Sugar
1 C packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp Vanilla
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 cups M n M candies
Mix the butter, shortening, sugars, eggs, & vanilla well. ...add the salt, soda, powder and flour. Beat so its all fluffy. Gently mix in the chocolate chips and MnM's.
With a small scoop, place chocolate batter on the sheet.
Let cool on sheet for 5 mins. Transfer to cooling rack.
Sure wish I could find mini MnM's in the Bulk section!!!!
