So here it is, the most luscious enemy you’d want to feast on. Chocolate chip cookie turned into bars; so now not only do you get to eat a cookie, you get to eat it in a crispy thick slab of voluptuous bar. It’s rich, moist and crunchy, loaded with chocolate.. in all it’s an orgy of scrumptious exquisiteness. You might die eating it, but oh! what a happy death will it be. I do not recommend making a lot of these, because sweet and rich as they are, they’re also too easy to eat, and while your mouth might say no, your soul will want it all. I promise!
What’s more, it’s tinted ever so lightly with salted peanuts, and this sinful pairing of sweet and salt will definitely bring all the boys to the yard. So let’s get cracking!
flour: 130 g (1 cup)
salt: 1/2 teaspoon
baking soda: 3/4 teaspoon
butter: 110 g
white granulated sugar: 100 g (1/2 cup)
light brown sugar: 70 g (1/3 cup)
vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon
egg: 1 large
bittersweet chocolate: 60 g
dark chocolate : 60 g (or use any combination you want)
salted peanuts: 20 g (3 tablespoons)
Preparation instructions: cream room temperature butter until light and airy. add in the sugars and beat again until fluffy. add the vanilla extract and egg and beat again for about a minute.
Add in the dry ingredients except chocolates and peanuts and mix well together. Finally ad in the peanuts and chocolates and mix until just combined.
Prepare a cake tin of choice preferably square and line with a buttered aluminium foil. scoop in the cookie dough and even out the top to make it flat. Bake at 180°C for 35 minutes or until the top looks crisp and the batter has risen a bit.
Let cool completely before slicing into bars.
This recipe is not only easy to put together but also all too easy to devour as I already mentioned. So instead of making some mere cookies, glitz it a bit and turn into bars.
