Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

So many fun things you can do with your leftover Halloween candy! I settled for stuffing pieces of O Henry and Peanut Butter Cups into the infamous chocolate chip cookie recipe created by Picky Palate. I find the batter a little thick so I've had to add an extra egg and it has always turned out great for me. Also, I used a tablespoon of cookie dough for the top and bottom. After using up the chocolate, I crushed up a bag of regular potato chips into the leftover dough and added some mini M&M's which created a sweet, salty, and crunchy texture. These cookies are even great straight from the freezer. Here is the recipe!

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies, I used the double stuff :)
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.   In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined.  Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2.  In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.  Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie.  Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo Cookie.  Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie is enclosed with dough.  Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking.  Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.  Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!
