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?
Chocolate Heath Bar Pecan Cookies
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:
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Combine the dry ingredients – flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt – in large bowl and set aside.
- 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.
- Stir in flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the pecans, chopped Heath bar and the white chocolate chips.
- Refrigerate batter until firm, about 45 minutes (or freeze for 25-30 min).
- Drop tablespoon size dallops of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- 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.
