Recipe for Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite, so I am always testing new recipes. For the Utah game, we had to have some sweets. They were playing in the Sugar Bowl!

I decided to make Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies with red M&M's, white chocolate chips, and semi-sweet chocolate chunks. I had a bag of Christmas M&M' I sat there and picked out all of the green ones! We had to show our Utah pride, sorry green guys! I am sure I will find another use for you:)

The cookies were a hit! They were nice and chewy, with a soft center. I really liked the mix of chocolates too! The chunks of chocolate melted nicely, the white chocolate added a sweet flavor, and the red M&M's were just FUN!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from Baking Illustrated

2 cups plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 Tbsp (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted cooled until warm
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
¾ cup semisweet chocolate chunks
½ cup of M & M’s
1/4 cup white chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with Silpats or parchment paper. I used my Silpats!
2. Whisk dry ingredients together; set aside.
3. With electric mixer, beat butter & sugars until thoroughly combined.
4. Beat in egg, yolk and vanilla until just combined.
5. Add dry ingredients; beat at low speed until combined. Stir in chips.
6. Scoop round little balls and place them on a baking sheet.
7. Bake, reversing position of cookie sheets halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft. I baked them for about 12 minutes.
8. Cool cookies on sheets until able to lift without breaking and place on wire rack to cool.

This is very close to the same recipe I use for chocolate chip cookies (I got it from Alton browns site)
I really think the melted butter has something to do with how wonderful they turn out!
I have never tried mine with white chocolate chips and chocolate chunks, I will be trying this soon!
