Candy Choc-o-latte Cookies

My boys came up with a new creation they call Candy Choc-o-latte Cookies. They really wanted to make chocolate chip cookies, but we were all out of chocolate chips. We raided all the candy stashes and came up with tons of different fun size chocolate and carmel candies. I chopped them up into little pieces and added them to the batter in place of chocolate chips. They were delicious!

Candy Choc-o-latte Cookies

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • approximately 2 cups of chopped up chocolate and carmel candies
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter, shortening, and white and brown sugars until they are creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each egg is added. Then mix in the vanilla. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water and add it in. Next add the salt. Then stir in the flour gradually. When it is all mixed together, you add the candy pieces. Make tablespoon size balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.
