Colossal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mel *finally* sent me a recipe!!! Woo! Hoo!!!

Imagine jumbo chocolate chip cookies with extra chips, nuts, oats, and even chopped candy bars. This is the recipe.

2 cups butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
5 cups uncooked regular oats
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels 1 (7-ounce) milk chocolate candy bar, coarsely chopped 1 cups chopped walnuts

BEAT butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric mixer until creamy; gradu­ally add sugars, beating well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

COMBINE flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well.

PROCESS oats in a food processor until finely ground. (You could also use your blender) Gradually add to butter mix­ture, beating well. Stir in chocolate morsels, chopped chocolate, and walnuts.

SHAPE cookie dough into 2-inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball to a 2 1/2-inch circle. Bake at 375° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely Yield: 4 dozen.

Half is Fine, too.
If you don’t have a heavy-duly mixer to handle this large amount of stiff dough, cut the recipe in half.

These sound yummy but I have a question...it says 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate morsels and 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Is that right?

yea- I guess instead of someone spending all day looking for a bag of 18 oz
chips they seperate them...not sure about that one. They also say 7 ounce
candy bar which I couldn't find so I might change that to 2 hershey bars
just to keep down confusion. ~mel

I made these cookies this weekend and let me say...they are incredible! I used a 24 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and an 8 oz. milk chocolate Hershey bar! The cookies are large and I got close to 100 out of the batch!
