In order to make these Badgers proud, we made the biggest, most delicious chocolate chip cookie I could rustle up. Because Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders, we stuffed the cookies full of little things: caramilk, kit kats, peanut butter cups, whatever we saw fit. Then, to top it all off, I dipped half of it in chocolate.
All of these cookies will be available at our Harry Potter fundraiser (info coming up soon!). These particular
And, if you can't make it to the Baker's Market, at least you'll have a chance to bring a little bit of Hogwart's to you.
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate mini chocolate chips
Assorted chocolate candy (we used peanut butter cups, kit kats, and caramilk)
1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together your flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
2)With a mixer, mix your butter and two sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well in-between. Add your vanilla and mix.
3) With a wooden spoon, stir your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients. Just when your batter is starting to form, add the chocolate chips and continue to stir until everything has come together. Set in the refrigerator until slightly chilled.
4) Start forming golf-ball sized pieces of dough. Flatten one slightly and place some pieces of candy in the middle of it. Then take another piece of dough and cover the top of the candy. Roll the dough in your hands, making sure that any edges are closed and smoothed. Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes, or until your cookies have begun to take on a lovely golden glow. Take out and enjoy. Go Hufflepuff!
