Chocolate ‘Cookies-N-Cream’ Cookies

Chocolate 'Cookies N Cream' Cookies

Hershey’s and the lovely Kimmie, of Full Circle, were kind enough to send me a sample of the new Hershey’s ‘Drops’, which are yummy candy pieces without the candy shell! They hit shelves this month in two flavors (Chocolate and Cookies-N-Cream), so if you’re out shopping and you see them, pick up a bag immediately! I wanted to do something fun with them, so I started digging through all my cookie recipes and finally decided to put a spin on Martha’s White Chocolate Chunk Cookies. You get a brownie-like taste from the cookie and then the creamy ‘cookies-n-cream’ taste swoops in from the ‘Drops’! I took them to a family gathering this past weekend and I barely snatched one up before they were all gone. If you’re like me and baking up those Holiday Cookie Trays for parties and gifts, I’m sure they’d find a snug, little fit right next to the Gingerbread Men and Sugar Cookie cut-outs! 🙂

Chocolate ‘Cookies-N-Cream’ Cookies
Adapted from: Martha Stewart’s Cookies

1 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c light brown sugar, packed
2 lg eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c dark cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 c mini chocolate chips
1/2 c Hershey’s Cookies-N-Cream Drops

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Mix in eggs one at a time until combined. Stir in vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. Gradually stir into butter mixture until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and drops.

Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2-inches apart. Flatten slightly. Bake cookies until golden, 16-18 minutes. Let cool on sheets placed on a wire rack for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days.

I just used those drops in some fudge. Good stuff.
Love stuffing them in a chocolate cookie!
