I found these in my drawer. I don't know how they got there.
Oh. Now I remember. These are little baits. For when my clients bring their very young children to my office. Children are generally terrified of me. Why? Don't ask me. Ask them. I have to entice them with candies to come near me so that I can pinch their cheeks. Oh. That's why they are terrified of me.
It's been a while since any kiddo has stepped into my lair. Besides, the candies were going to expire soon and I had to do something with them. That's when I spotted Monica's Malted Chocolate Candy Cookies - my solution to disposing of my candy stash.
I snapped the Cadbury chocolates into two before unwrapping them. That was a lot easier and neater than chopping them. In our tropical climate, chocolate melts easily and makes a big sticky mess.
Then it all went into the cookie batter. My M&Ms were kept in the fridge which was probably not such a good idea. When taken out, condensation took place and the colours bled. I even managed to crack an M&M or two.
It was fun though placing the M&Ms onto the cookies dough. Took me back to my kindergarten days. When I played with plasticine and pretended I was making cookies.
The cookies turned out alright. Just that I wish I had done a better job. And I didn't like the blueberry flavour of the Cadbury chocolate. But it was not too bad as I did enjoy a cookie or two.
These cookies are crisp around the edges and soft in the centre when fresh from the oven. I like. But become chewy once cooled. Don't like :(
I am keeping in view this recipe with other combinations of candy. Definitely nothing with blueberry flavour. And I am so glad to get rid of my candies :) I am not posting the recipe I adapted from Monica's as I did not do the adjustments very well. But if you are interested, please go to A Beautiful Mess to check out Monica's cookies and her two very cute kids. How I wish I could pinch their cheeks.
