I have a thing for Ben and Jerry's so when I had to make some cookies this weekend I allowed my obsession to inspire me. These cookies are based on Ben and Jerry's Everything but the... flavor. All I can say is Yummy!! I'll be honest, one plate of the cookies never made it to the event, and the three that did were gone before dinner even started. Not bad! They were chewy with a hint of peanut butter, lots of chocolate and here are there a little bit of toffee crunch. The white part of the cookie resembled a chocolate chip batter so the brown sugar/butter flavor was in there two. Delicious!!
So here's what I did.
Vanilla Cake Mix
Milk Chocolate or Fudge Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Butter Softened
2 Tbls Water
1/4 Cup Flour
6 Mini White Chocolate Bars (I used Hershey's Cookies and Cream Bars)
2 Large Heath Bars
10 Small Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the Vanilla cake mix in a bowl with the brown sugar and half of the butter. Then beat in two eggs. Add half of the flour and 1 Tbls of water. Mix tip combined. Chop up the chocolate bars and peanut butter cups into medium sized chunks. Gently stir them into the white batter.
In a separate bowl combine the chocolate cake mix with the remaining half of the butter. Beat in the remaining eggs. Then add the remaining flour and water. Mix until combined. Now we are adding the chocolate and vanilla mixes together, but we want a swirl effect and do not want them fully mixed. I put the chocolate batter on top of the vanilla and pulled my mixing spoon through both several times creating swirls of the two mixtures. Once you are satisfied with the mixture spoon the batter into 1" cookie balls and drop them on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes. Cookies should be starting to brown on the bottom but not the top.
