Do you ever buy something from Costco just because it is really good deal? Like say… oh I don’t know a 5 pound bag of chocolate chips? Well I do! We wont even go there about my unopened 3 pounds of Craisins I need to use by October……
So one day I am craving cookies which is unlike me because when my sweet tooth strikes it always wants gummies not cookies. But on this particular day I wanted cookies bad. So I figure well it is a good way to use a minuscule amount of my lifetime supply of chocolate chips and the kids were excited to make cookies so why not.
If I am going to make cookies and chill the dough and roll out multiple dough balls and switch cookie sheets and switch cookie sheets and switch cookie sheets, I’m going to add a little something special to these cookies. So I begin to brainstorm and try to think of what I can add to these cookies to make them over the top and I a little lightbulb goes off and I open my trusty candy drawer (yes I have a whole drawer for candy, where else would I keep all my gummies?) and there it is, a bag of those new mini Kit Kats, the perfect addition to my chocolate chip cookies!
And oh what a perfect addition they were!!! I still chopped them half to make them a better size for the cookies but they added just a bit of crunch to the cookies and of course that Kit Kat flavor everyone loves. I’m not sure I could ever make chocolate chip cookies without throwing these in there ever again!!
So next time you are craving something sweet try these Kit Kat Cookies, they are amazing!!
