We’ve had it with chocolate chip cookies. Particularly the chip portion of said baked good. Who decided we should settle for a measly crumb of chocolate? It’s time to ditch the chips for something more stimulating. And we can’t think of anything more rousing than a chocolate bar to kick your cookies up a notch. Or two, if you’re feeling particularly audacious.  

Have a favorite cookie recipe? Simply swap the chips for chocolate bars. It makes for a boldly upgraded creation.

What you need:

1 ¼ C Butter (may substitute ¼ C for peanut butter)

1 ¼ C Sugar

1 C Brown Sugar

2 Eggs

2 T Vanilla

3 C Flour

4 of your favorite Pure Madness Chocolate bars (we love Dark Spice)

Optional: ½ lb. of nuts (we recommend this addition if you’re using the Pure Dark bar)

How you make it:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Break apart three chocolate bars, then cut squares into thirds. Set fourth bar aside.

Cream butter and sugars in a bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, then flour.

Stir in chocolate and nuts (if desired).

Lightly spray cookie sheet with non-stick oil

Scoop dough onto sheet, adding remaining bar pieces on top, and flatten slightly

Cook for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown

Remove cookies from oven, and let cool about 1-2 minutes.

Transfer to cooling rack and kiss your chocolate chip cookies goodbye.
