I have a Kitchenaid Artisan mixer and you can see the bowl is full. I don't think I could mix these if I didn't have it. Here's the recipe:
2c brown sugar
2c. white sugar
24 oz. choc. chips
3 c. chopped nuts ( I use 1/2 c macadamia, 1c. walnut, 1 1/2 c. pecan pieces)
Measure oatmeal and grind in a food processor until it is a fine powder. Set aside. Grind the Hershey bar in the same manner and set aside.
Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in the flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda. Add choc. chips, grated Hershey bar, and nuts. Mix well.
Roll into balls and place 2" apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10min. at 375.I do all my baking on a Silpat. The cookies just slide off and there is no mess.
Cool on a baking rack.
Tip- If you quickly eat them off the rack as they cool, you don't have to find storage containers!
