Chocolate Heath Bar Pecan Cookies

I love Heath Bar. I know, I’ve professed my love for all things Heath Bar before – and told you it was probably my favorite candy, thanks to my early love of Ben & Jerry’s Heath Bar Crunch ice ream (which is no more:(). But seriously – a cookie or candy or dessert with Heath Bar is deadly around me – I just can’t say no!

Which is why when I was perusing my Magnolia Bakery cookbook and came upon this recipe, my eye immediately was drawn to the page with the Chocolate Drop Cookies. Even though I don’t really like chocolate cookies (I know, I’m weird), I knew I had to give these a try. Heath Bar AND white chocolate chips? Count me in! At least I could share them, right?

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons milk (I used unsweetened original Almond Breeze almond milk – it’s what I had on hand)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
  • 1 cup Heath Bars cut up into small chunks (I bought the pre-diced bars from the baking aisle)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Here’s what you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients – flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt – in large bowl and set aside.
  3. In another  bowl cream the butter and sugars until smooth. Add eggs and beatwell. Then, add the milk and vanilla. Blend for another minute or until no lumps remain.
  4. Stir in flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the pecans, chopped Heath bar and the white chocolate chips.
  5. Refrigerate batter until firm, about 45 minutes (or freeze for 25-30 min).
  6. Drop tablespoon size dallops of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, cool cookies on the sheet. Remove the cookies after 1 minute and cool on wire cooling rack.
