Soft and chewy homemade cookies made with loads of chocolate chip morsels and almond joy candy.
Adjust oven rack to middle position and turn the heat to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper set aside.
Whisk 1¾ cups flour & ½ tsp baking soda together in a bowl, set aside
Heat 10 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat until melted and then for another 1-2 minutes until the butter turns a dark golden color. Transfer browned butter to a large heatproof bowl & stir in the remaining 4 tablespoons butter until completely melted.
Add 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp salt & 2 tsp vanilla to the melted butter and stir/whisk until fully incorporated. While continuing to whisk, add egg & yolk, continuing to whisk until the mixture is smooth. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Stir for 30 seconds. Repeat the process of resting and stirring 2 more times until the mixture has thickened & is smooth and shiny.°
Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and using a wooden spoon stir until just combined about 1 minute. Add chocolate chips & stir again to make sure chocolate chips are evenly distributed.
Using a 1 tablespoon-sized ice cream scoop (2- 2.5 inches cookies), or a 3 tablespoon-sized ice cream scoop (for larger & thicker cookies), divide the dough & arrange on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Stick about 4 (for smaller sized cookies) or 7-8 (for larger cookies) Almond Joy candies on top of each cookie ball.
Shape the cookie dough and set it on a baking sheet. Adorn with almond joy candies. Freeze for 3-4 hours. Transfer to a ziplock bag & store for up to 1 month. To bake: set frozen cookie balls on a parchment paper-lined a baking sheet, 2 inches apart and bake in a preheated to 375°F oven. Add 3-4 minutes to the regular baking time.
