Well, it’s waste for that particular recipe, because the pieces are much too small to cover in chocolate. But they still taste great, and I thought they would be perfect in cookies.
So this recipe starts with making the Seafoam candy, but using the pieces that you do not cover in chocolate. I’ll list it as an ingredient below, but refer to the Seafoam recipe to see how to make it (it’s very easy but you’ll need a candy thermometer).
My instincts were right about the leftover Seafoam…these make fantastic cookies!
- 2 1/4 c flour
- 1 t baking soda
- 1 t salt
- 1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 5 t vanilla
- 2 cups Seafoam leftovers (see Seafoam recipe for details)
- 1 ¼ cups butterscotch chips
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
DirectionsMix flour, baking soda… everything into a bowl except the seafoam and the chips. Mix until it’s fully mixed. Then add the seafoam and the chips and refrigerate for at least a half an hour.
Put tablespoon-sized balls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 for about 8 minutes, or until they’re starting to get a little brown on the underside. Take them out and let them set on the baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
That’s it! Enjoy! Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
