Le CarPeaCho Cookies

This is my take on the SumB*tch cookies from the How I Met Your Mother series.  Taking the classic elements of Caramel, Peanut butter and Chocolate, mixing them together and reveling at the results.

What I love about these, is that the “cookie” part of this creation is pretty much a brownie.  A fudgy and  rich, chocolaty goodness with candy stuffed inside of it.  Sound good to you?  I thought so.

If you don’t have Almond Flour you can make your own by grounding roasted almonds in a food processor.  Or, if almond flour is too much hassle for your busy life (we’ve all been there, don’t worry), you can just use an additional 1/4 cup of regular All purpose flour instead.

The inclusions are also adaptable for your tastes.  Add toasted walnuts, or chocolate chips.  As was mentioned earlier, the base is essentially a brownie in cookie form.  So whatever inclusions you love with your brownie recipe are usable here.

What you need:

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup Reese’s M&Ms or similar peanut butter candy
  • 1/3 cup Mini Rolos or similar caramel candy

What you need to do:

In medium bowl, sift all dry ingredients together.

Pour in butter, vanilla and egg and mix until combined.

Stir in Candy, place bowl in fridge for 20-30 to firm up slightly (optional)

Bake at 375 Fahrenheit for 14 minutes.

****Oven times may vary****
