This is literally what it sounds like, a cookie with a Kit Kat on it; no false advertisement here! The chewy cookie dough is the perfect backdrop for the crunchy, chocolaty Kit Kat bar.

 

The What: 
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed tightly
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick  (1/2 cup) room temperature, unsalted  butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Kit Kats (either fun-size or full size)

 

The How: 

The cookie dough will spend an hour in the freezer, do not preheat the oven just yet.

Place the brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and butter in a large bowl and mix with a spatula until they forms a smooth paste. If you forgot to take the butter out of the fridge, simply microwave it for 30 seconds or until pliable.

Switch to a whisk and whisk in the egg and vanilla. Whisk until it doubles in size and is light brown in color.

Sift the flour and baking soda into the bowl, fold them in with a spatula until fully combined.

Empty the dough onto a large piece of cling wrap placed on the counter. Roll the dough into the shape of a large sausage, the cling wrap being the casing. Place in the freezer for at least one hour.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line your baking trays with parchment paper.

Cut the dough into long, skinny rectangles, about the same size as one Kit Kat sticks you have chosen.

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes WITHOUT the chocolate bars on the cookies. The Kit Kats would be unrecognizable if they baked in the oven for so long.

Unwrap the Kit Kats and brake them apart while the cookies bake. I like to put them in the freezer during the baking time, I find they hold their shape better once placed on the hot cookies.

When you remove the baking trays from the oven, place the Kit Kats on the cookies right away, pressing down slightly to secure them tightly.

Let cool, in the fridge preferably, for 20 minutes before devouring.
