Adding salt to chocolate is awesome. It really brings out the rich flavor we all love, and intensifies the sweet experience.
I add salt to basically every cookie I make these days, and these were no exception.
Halloween this year brought FOUR different Trick-or-Treat events in the Whetzel House. Four. And apparently, there was a run on Reese Cups, as we ended up with about 400 of them.
Good news for these cookies.
I took a twist on a Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie recipe and added in a bunch of chunked up Reese Cups, creating a delicious candy bar cookie. Of course, I topped them with a little fleur de sel to bring out those flavors, but you could use a coarse salt if you want. It got pretty rave reviews around here, and if you like the combo power of chocolate and peanut butter, these cookies are sure be a new favorite. Give them a shot!
