What can I say about these cookies other than…YUM, can I eat 50 more please?
The name alone sells you on making them right? I don’t know about you but anything with heath bar and M&M’s in it I’m sold! I decided to combine all my favorite cookies into one, and since its Valentines Day I made them extra special with valentines M&M’s :-)
I hope you all enjoy spoiling your loved ones with this recipe as much as I did, Happy Valentines day! Xo
1 cup butter, cut into cubes
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
2 ½ cups flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
1 cup heath bar candies, smashed into chunks
½ cup M&M’s
Grease two cookie sheets and preheat oven to 350 degrees
Using a medium sized skillet over medium heat start to melt the butter, make sure to whisk occasionally and don’t walk away from the stove; you don’t want the butter to burn. After a few minutes the butter will start to turn a light brown caramel color and smell a bit nutty almost like toffee. Once you see and smell the butter change transfer to a bowl to cool and come to room temperature.
In a medium sized bowl sift together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, once sifted set it aside.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer beat together the room temperature brown butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
Next, mix in the flour mixture to the sugar/egg/butter mixture until completely combined, the batter will be very thick and sticky. Once batter is formed mix in the heath bar chunks and M&M’s.
Form batter into 24 same size balls, transfer the dough balls to the cookie sheets and bake each batch at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
