Cookie Brittle

by Megan on April 29, 2010

When this was baking, my kitchen smelled like an ice cream parlor  … or maybe like a waffle cone. So, that’s probably reason enough to make this, right?

I decided to use some of my miscellaneous chips for this. They look pretty, eh?

MiscChips

Make these crunchy guys! Package them up for friends. Give them to your boyfriend! Leave them at home for when there is a snacking necessity.

And look at that down there! These are so easy! Wam bam, thank you ma’am. AND they are delicious … instant pleasure when you’re dreaming of cookies.

Cookie Brittle
Recipe from my mom. She likes these better than cookies!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • heaping 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or misc. chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt. When creamy add flour. When mixed, stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Press into a 9 x 13 inch pan, lined with a 16 inch rectangle of parchment paper or aluminum foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool. Lift out of pan using the parchment paper (like picture above) or aluminum foil. Break into pieces and snack to death or put a wedge in your ice cream or on a milkshake as a garnish.
