Kit Kat Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK so these are like really good…so don’t make these if you’re on a diet! Thank God I had to bring these to a potluck, or else I would have stuffed them all down my mouth and would be in regret right now. The only special thing about these are that I made them in a whoopie pan, so they’re like GIANT. But other than that, brown butter makes them super nutty & delicious. If you’re wondering why & how I’ve been baking so much, it’s mainly because I’m procrastinating on work, need baking therapy after every lab session, and am having too much fun in my new apartment. God is good though, and provides us with the rest we need. For that, I am thankful! He sustains me more than I will ever know or imagine. Anyways, enjoy the recipe 🙂

Got this on Amazon!

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 bag mini Kit Kats
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a whoopie pan with nonstick spray or line a pan with parchment.
  2. Place butter into a small saucepan over medium heat. Swirl and heat until deep golden brown. Remove heat and let cool for 5 minutes. [This is important, because you don’t want to cook your egg in the next step, if the butter is too hot!]
  3. Place browned butter and little bits from the pan into a stand mixer along with the brown and granulated sugar. Beat to combine then add egg and vanilla beating to combine. Add  flour, pudding mix, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips. Mix on low until just combined.
  4. With a medium cookie scoop, place 2 tablespoons of dough into whoopie pan or onto pan. Gently press 2-3 mini kit kats into each cookie and bake for 10 minutes, until baked through. Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
