First, a quick summary of my wonderful weekend!
We made a stop at Casey’s Cupcakes in Laguna Beach. I can honestly say I have never fallen prey to this over priced cupcake phenomenon going on in the food world, not once. But I saw the sign that said “Winner of Cupcake Wars” and for some reason I really couldn’t resist. I waltzed right into this overly pink-ed out cupcake shop where girls with big pink bows and pink aprons work. Chris refused to enter.
However, the Caribbean Coconut cupcake might have been the most awesome cupcake ever. I have fallen prey to the pretty in pink cupcake shop. And despite his puppy dog eyes you see in the pictures, Rex didn’t get one bite.
Big pink bow girls make awesome cupcakes. There, I said it. I love pink cupcake shops with deliciously moist and unforgettable cupcake flavors!
Now, about those cookies…
I wish I could take credit for this cookie recipe but it belongs to the stuffing sweets with sweets queen, Jenny from Picky Palate. Her picky kids can’t seem to turn anything sweet down and I don’t blame them!
I decided to make these with Chris this weekend because I knew he would love them. He is great at stacking and sandwiching all kinds of food. Sometimes I picture him as Buddy the Elf putting maple syrup and candy on his spaghetti. Not that he would do that, but you get the picture. Here was Chris’s take on the Reese’s Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie.
But of course! Why didn’t I think of adding not one but TWO candy bars into one cookie. I affectionately named this Chris’s Double Whammy.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Then don’t forget to add the eggs and vanilla before the dry ingredients go in. I may or may not have done just that.
Then slowly incorporate the dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips with your hand a spatula. Gotta love baking with men, so creative.
Plop your first scoop of dough onto the cookie sheets.
Then, gently add your Reese’s or Heath Bar, or both, and top with another dollop of dough.
Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let cool…or not. Chris’s uncooled Double Whammy:
Or let it sit overnight and slice open to reveal the perfection that is inside a Reese’s, or Heath Bar, or both, stuffed chocolate chip cookie!
