I really need to go to the store.
My shopping list is super long, though there really is only one item written down… Just over and over and over again. I’m totally not obsessive compulsive. Maybe annoying, but what gives? I just want to make sure I don’t forget to pick up the chocolate.
Like, I really can’t forget to pick it up. I kinda need it. It’s sort of like a dependency issue… but a perfectly typical, completely normal, one. I totally make sense.
Can’t you just imagine squeezing a smidgen of ice cream between two of these homemade suckers and calling it a good night? Dang it, now I totes need to go to the store.
Can someone puhlease bring me a glass of cold milk? Wait no, scratch that… Chocolate milk. Bada bing. And the world makes sense again.
These cookies are so good I almost wet my pants. I apologize for my vulgar and cheeky remarks, but I can’t help it. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to share a recipe. That’s a lie… but for what it’s worth, I can totally offer you some cookies. Just take them, okay?
These babies taste like cake batter. And boy, they are good. Like, super good. Melted-chocolate-in-your-mouth good. Like, these cookies are definitely the type to wet your pants over.
Yup… these are so totally it.
Forgive me again… Or maybe you might want to thank me? Your pants and you will be okay, trust me. Just throw them in the wash and in a few hours they’ll be as good as new. If your friends make fun of that weird dark area on your pants, just pop this cookie in their mouths and wait a moment or two.
Look who’s laughing now.
These cookies taste like a perfect mix of subtle sweetness and gooey goodness. You like that play on words? It’s okay… I do, too. They are fluffy, light, and totally the bees knees. They are made even better with Hershey’s chocolate to top them off.
I know… Stop it.
Hershey Bar Cake Batter Cookies
(yields 24 cookies)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp low-fat milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Hershey’s king-sized chocolate bars, divided by square
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray. Mix both flours, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until totally combined and smooth. Add eggs, and continue to whisk. Stir in milk, then vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until a rough dough forms – it will be gooey and stick, but that’s good for a cookie!
Shape the dough into 24 golf ball-sized cookies and place each one on the prepared baking sheet two inches apart, pressing down slightly to form the cookie shape. DO NOT place the Hershey’s squares yet!
Bake cookies for 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown and the centers are soft and puffy – do not over bake! Immediately take out and place one Hershey’s chocolate square in each cookie cavity and press down. Allow cookies to set and cool completely… then dig in!
So who needs a new pair of pants? I do. Happy noming.
