Triple Chip Mudslide cookies

Triple chip Mudslide cookies

These are a wonderful cookie – fudgy, soft and made with three kinds of chips – semisweet, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. They stayed nice and puffy too, which I love. Flat cookies are not my bag.

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. (Don’t directly pour from the bag into the measuring cup). I recommend chilling the scooped out dough for a few hours to prevent cookies from spreading. I also recommend you preheat your oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions – in a bowl, combine butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg, yolk, and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips. Blend in dry ingredients. (You may need to use your hands to mix it all together if your mixer can’t get it done. Stir in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and roll into balls. Chill a few hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Stagger cookies on sheet. Bake 11 minutes (no longer). Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Triple chip olive oil cookies

Another chocolate chip cookie recipe for you. These feature semisweet, white and milk chocolate chips. I used olive oil instead of butter.

Scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Once you add the dry ingredients, you may want to use your hands to mix the dough. Also use your hands when you mix in the chips.

If you decide to chill the dough, I recommend scooping the mounds of dough out first. It will be difficult to scoop out chilled dough. I am a big believer in chilling cookie dough to keep cookies puffy.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions – mix olive oil, sugar and brown sugar. Stir in egg, yolk and water. Blend in dry ingredients, using your hands. Mix in chips, using your hands. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and form tall mounds. Chill. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheer with parchment paper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (you will see golden patches on top). Store in covered container.

Perfectly puffy!

Red velvet oreo bars topped with fudge and oreos

I wanted to whip up something for work tomorrow morning. I saw this box of red velvet cake mix and decided make it into bars with a fudge topping and crushed oreos. I also thought about adding m&ms, but that might have been a bit much! You can use whatever cake mix flavor you want.

  • Bars ingredients list
  • 1 red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 tbs butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp. Line a 9×13 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. In a bowl, combine cake mix, eggs and butter. Press evenly into prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes. (No longer). While bars and baking, make the fudge topping

  • Fudge topping ingredients
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 8 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

In a saucepan, combine butter, sugar and evaporated milk. Cook, stirring occasionally, to a boil. Remove from heat. Add chips and stir until melted. Blend in vanilla. Pour over cooled bars.

Sprinkle with crushed oreos.

Caramel bars with an oreo crust

Caramel bars with an oreo crust

This is a fabulous, yet pretty easy treat to whip up. It features an oreo crust, homemade caramel and melted milk chocolate on top. You will need oreos, butter, heavy cream, brown sugar and chocolate. I made these in a bread pan. I used a food processor to crush the oreos, but you can also use a rolling pin.

  • Oreo crust ingredients
  • 30 oreos, finely crushed
  • 6 tbs butter, melted

Line a bread pan with tin foil. In a bowl, combine crushed oreos and butter. Press in bottom of foiled pan. Freeze 15 minutes.

  • Caramel filling
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 8 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs heavy cream

In a saucepan, combine brown sugar and butter. Cook over low-medium heat, whisking, to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in heavy cream. Let set for 15 minutes. Pour over oreo crust.

Top with melted chocolate. Chill 30 minutes. Cut and store in covered container.

Chocolate stuffed cookies

Chocolate stuffed cookies

In an effort to use up our remaining Halloween candy (Rob bought 24 bags, but we only used 15), I opted for a stuffed cookie. These are chocolate and use melted chocolate chips in the batter. Half of these are stuffed with Reese’s peanut butter cups, the other half with oreos. We have a lot of oreos around too, plus not everyone loves peanut butter. So people can tell the difference, I placed 3 white chocolate chips on the top of the oreo stuffed cookies.

Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. I chilled these overnight to keep the dough from. Spreading too much. Preheat yourboven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temp. Don’t bake these longer than 10 to 12 minutes because the bottoms will burn. These will firm up after you take them out of the oven.

  • Ingredients list
  • 10 tbs butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 2/3 cups dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Blend in melted chocolate. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 to 3 tbs of dough and evenly divide in half. Slightly flatten each half.

On one half, place a peanut butter cup or oreo

Top with remaining flattened half of cookie dough

Seal edges to completley cover oreo or peanut butter cup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes (no longer or else the bottoms could burn)

Cool completely and store in covered container.

Triple chip cookies

Triple chip cookies

I am absolutely delighted how these turned out. Huge mounds of puffy goodness. I do not like flat cookies! I am not quite sure why. These were a last minute request from Rob, so I used crisco, which I believe helped with the puffiness. I also made peanut butter cookies and those are not his bag, if you will, so I whipped up a few of these triple chip cookies, which we also call “the franks” because our friend Frank loves them!

Look at all those chips!

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right tem (a tip from a Sears appliances tech – thanks Stanley for the invaluable advice). If you use butter instead of crisco, I recommend chilling the mounds of dough for a few hours or freeze them for 30 minutes to avoid them spreading too much.

This recipe made 8 good size cookies (I uses 1/4 cup dough scoop for each one)

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup crisco
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1.7 ounce instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions – preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, cream crisco and brown sugar. Add pudding mix. Blend in vanilla, egg, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Fold in flour. Stir in chips. ( I used my hands to blend the dough together once I added the chips). Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 13 minutes. You will see golden patches on top. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

The perfect chocolate chip cookies (puffy)

Perfect and puffy chocolate chip cookie

These represent what I believe is the perfect chocolate chip cookie – puffy. I know a lot of people love flat cookies, UT I prefer mine to be puffy. I added a tsp of cornstarch to the dough to help with that and also chilled the dough for 2 hours.

Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also, form your individual doughs into cylinders and chill your dough for a few hours before baking.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, cold and grated
  • 1/2 cup crisco
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3.4 oz vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – in a bowl, cream butter, crisco, sugar, and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Blend in pudding mix. Fold in flour, baking soda, and cornstarch. You may need to use your hands to blend completely the dough together. Fold in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and corn tall cylinders. Chill a few hours. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookie cylinders on sheets. Bake 12 minutes (light golden patches on top). They will be a little undercooked on top, but will firm up as they cool. Store in covered container.

Chocodiles – chocolate covered twinkies

Chocodiles!

Today’s request from Rob – a chocodile. I had never heard of one before, but learned it is a chocolate covered twinkie. It gave me a chance to use my twinkie pan (one of many baking items I have that get little or no use. Hello – cherry maker, mini cake pop maker, mini pie maker, large cupcake pan, to name a few)

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 yolk
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Spray a canoe or twinkie pan with baking spray. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, yolk and vanilla. Blend in milk, then dry ingredients. Spoon batter into prepared pans 3/4 of the way full. Bake 15 to 18 minutes (a toothpick inserted in center of twinkie comes out clean) cool 10 minutes. Use a plastic knife to remove from pan. Cool completley.

Twinkie pan put to good use
  • Filling ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

In a bowl, beat ingredients together. Use the bottom of a wooden spoon to poke 3 holes in the bottom of a cooled twinkie.

Then using a pasty bag or decorating apparatus, carefully fill the three holes. Do not overfill.

Topping – in a microwave safe bowl, heat 1/2 cup cream for 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Let set 5 minutes. Stir smooth. Spread over top of filled twinkies. Store in covered container

I was a little messy with the topping 🙂
