Twix Bar Cookies

With all of the cupcakes I've been baking lately, cookies have taken a back seat in my kitchen.
I thought it was about time I changed that and gave cookies the attention they deserve. 
After all they're cute and tasty too.

Twix candy bars are the star of this cookie.  Chocolate and caramel mixed with cookie dough - yum!
I used the fun size bars instead of a full size candy bar.  They were easy to cut into bite size chunks.
I also baked the cookies on a Silpat mat for easy removal.  If you don't have a Silpat, I highly recommend them. 

Hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did!

Twix Bar Cookies
recipe from Your Home Based Mom

2 C plus 2 T flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
12 T (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled until warm
1 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 C coarsely chopped Twix Bars

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Chop your Twix bars into 1/4 inch chunks.  Cut each bar in half lengthwise and then chop into 1/4 inch pieces width wise.  In a bowl combine flour, soda and salt.  Set aside.  In your mixer blend butter and sugars together until combined.  Beat in egg, egg yolk and vanilla.  Add in dry ingredients and beat until just combined.  Fold in Twix Bar chunks.  Bake for 13-15 minutes until light golden brown and edges start to harden but center is soft.  Do not overbake.
