M&M Doozies


One thing I used to love about shopping at the mall was strolling by the delightful display of Great American Cookies. Tempted by the sweet aroma, luring me closer, it would take all my will power to re-direct my eyes forward and continue on my merry way. (Until I'd come upon a stand of Auntie Anne's pretzels, and then, well... that's a whole other craving!) Last year, I tried my hand at a homemade chocolate chip cookie cake -- simply delicious! It was every bit as tasty as the ones you would buy from the mall, and it was such a hit with my hubby that he requested his own cookie cake for his birthday this year. And I gladly obliged... :)
There is one other taunting treat in those Great American Cookie displays that can catch my eye from twenty feet away... the Double Doozies! Oh my heaven, how I love the sweet divinity of a Double Doozie! Since the cookie cake was such a success, I decided to use the same recipe to recreate the doozie sensation right here in my own kitchen. Hooray, another great success!
My preference is always the M&M doozie, so I subbed the bittersweet and white chocolate chips for a bag of plain M&Ms and 1/2 cup of mini chocolate morsels. I baked them at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Once the cookies had cooled, I topped half the batch with my favorite buttercream frosting and sandwiched them together with the other half. Perfection!
Of course I could not leave all these sitting on my counter, screaming for my affection. No, that would not do so well for my waistline. :) Instead, I piled them up in a sweet little cookie jar and escorted them over to our friend's housewarming party. Treats like these are made to be shared, and I think they made the tastiest gift!

These are so cute and look wonderful. I agree with you as in my house they would need to be given away/shared as well lol. I have no will power.
