Heath Bar Brownie Cookies

You will need:
1/3 Cup of Unsalted Butter
1/3 Cup of Shortening (or 2/3 Cup of either)
1-1/2 Cups of Packed Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp. of Strong Coffee
2 Eggs
1-1/2 Cups of Flour
1/3 Cup of Hershey's Cocoa
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 pkg. of Heath Bar bits

Preheat oven at 375 degrees.

Beat shortening (and/or butter), brown sugar, water and vanilla in mixing bowl (by hand or beaters) until blended. Add eggs and blend well.

Open up bag of Heath bar bits and pour onto a plate (for cookie pressing).

In separate bowl, Stir together the flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Gradually add to sugar mixture by hand or low speed with hand beater. Form rounded teaspoons of mixture and gently press into heath bar bits and place (topping side up) onto ungreased cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes.


For a darker cookie sheet, bake no more than 8 minutes.
Butter vs. Shortening:In my recipe, I use both butter and shortening because the shortening brings fluffliness to the cookie while the butter adds the flavor that compliments the chocolate! If you want a lighter version of this, use just shortening.

For an added "punch" to these cookies, drizzle with caramel!

Bon Appetite!
