Kooky Spooky Kit Kat Cookie

I love to bake any time of the year, but there's something about fall's crisp, cool weather that makes me crave warm baked goods.  I received a boxload of Halloween candies from Hershey's that we can't (or shouldn't) eat all on our own, so I've decided to use them in my baking and share them with friends.   First up: special Halloween Kit Kat bars coated with orange colored white chocolate! I took my inspiration from the Kit Kat Cookie recipe from Life with the Crust Cut Off, and created my own Kooky Spooky Kit Kat Cookie.

Kooky Spooky Kit Kat Cookie

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract/vanilla bean paste or orange extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 oz Kit Kat Orange Wafer Bars (approximately 20 individual Kit Kat sticks)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream the butter and the sugars together.

Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix till smooth.

Add the flour, baking soda and salt, approx. 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well between additions.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Chop each Kit Kat wafer stick into 4 or 6 pieces.

Gently fold the Kit Kat pieces into the dough.  I would do this by hand so the Kit Kat pieces don't crumble too much.

Roll the dough into balls, approximately 1.5 inches in diameter.  Place the balls on baking sheets lined with parchment paper (no need to press the balls down!).

Place sheet in the preheated oven (350 degrees F) and bake for 12-14 minutes. The cookies will be barely brown on the edges.

These cookies are soft and chewy, but you get a yummy crunch every so often when you bite into a Kit Kat piece.  The orange Kit Kat pieces give a beautiful orange accent to the cookies -- perfect for Halloween! If you use orange extract instead of vanilla, the cookies will also have a slight orange flavor.  I can't think of any better pairing than orange and chocolate!
