Loaded Every Chip Cookies #recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie

Well, the holiday season is officially over. We’re left with wayward pieces of tinsel, pine needles on the floor, and too-tight britches. It is a sad, sad time.

You want to know what else is sad? The eleventy-billion random, half-empty bags of baking chips in my pantry I collected during the month of December. I have dark chocolate, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, **gasp for breath**, butterscotch, M&M candies, and mint chips. So, I threw a whole bunch of them into an awesome batch of cookie dough and the heavens opened up.

Loaded Every Chip Cookies #recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…….

These cookies are perfect – thick, chewy, and fabulously tasty. Choose any random chips you have in your pantry – just try avoid possible icky conflicts (like mint and peanut butter). Also, I would use at least 1/4 cup of each chip for a uniform flavor profile, but if you have less than that and want to use them up, by all means add them in!

Thanks, Melissa! I made these last night and my husband was quite displeased that he couldn’t have any until they were photographed for the blog. Oh, the suffering of food blogger husbands ;)

Great idea! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite type of cookie, too. I think it’s due to my weakness for brown sugar.

Oh yes, brown sugar!! :)

Happy New Year to you too, Paula! They won’t last long at all, you can be sure of that :)

Great recipe, Jennifer! So much better than eating half the bag of leftover chips and then feeling guilty forevermore…not that I’ve ever done that…. (;

Haha, of course not! I would never… ;)

This is really a fantastic base recipe for all kind of additions – chocolate chips, nuts, candies, anything! Feel free to increase the brown sugar by 1/4 cup if not using so many chips or if you just want a sweeter cookie! Since these had SO many chips in them, I decreased the sugar just a tad :) I also love that it uses melted butter – no worries about softening it!

What a wonderful way to use up your “chips.” I think I have everything on hand so you know I’ll be making these over the weekend – YUM!

Someone posted a link to this post on tumblr and I immediately printed out the recipe and made them! I only had regular chocolate chips, but they still turned out amazing. My Grandma, who normally isn’t really into chocolate chip cookies, thought they were perfect. Next time I make them, I might add some peanuts or peanut butter chips. Yum…
thanks!

I’m so glad that you liked them, Dani! Adding peanuts and peanut butter chips sounds amazing!!
