Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped candy bars, use a mix of your favorite candy bars
  • Additional chopped candy bars, for decoration, optional
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling on cookies

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, if necessary. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
  • With the mixer off, add the dry ingredients. Mix on low until just combined. Don’t over mix.
  • Stir in the chopped candy bars.
  • Roll 2 to 3 tablespoons of the dough into balls and place them on your prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges barely start to brown. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes. You can gently press additional pieces of candy onto the tops of the cookies for looks. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
