  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (200g) packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup (134g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups (372g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (170g) chocolate chips
  • ½ cup (98g) M&Ms
  • ½ cup (62g) chopped Crunch Bars (5 fun sized)
  • ½ cup (56g) chopped Kit Kats (4-5 fun sized)
  • ½ cup (66g) chopped Snickers (4-5 fun sized)


  • Place melted butter and both sugars in a large bowl. Stir to combine (you can also use a mixer).
  • Stir in eggs, vanilla, salt, baking soda, then stir in flour.
  • Add chocolate chips and candy and stir.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Scoop 2-tablespoon size balls of dough and place them on the cookie sheet, no need to space. Chill at least 1 hour. If chilling longer than 4 hours, cover with plastic wrap. Can be chilled up to overnight or the dough balls can be frozen for up to 2 months.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line additional cookie sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats and spread cookies 2-inches apart. Bake 11-15 minutes, or until they just lose their glossy sheen and are light golden around the edges. Cool at least 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months or freeze for up to 2 months.
