These Fudgy Chocolate Sixlets Cookies are a fun cookie for Valentine’s day. They’re loaded with chocolate chips and colorful Sixlets Candies.
Today’s cookie recipes in honor of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
This is the second year for the Valentine’s event! We want to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer!
Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved.
Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies: Dixie Crystals, Mediavine and OXO have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000!!!
Thanks to many of you, we have reached our goal. You can still donate and help us make an even bigger difference! Donate here until March 1, 2018.
You’ll need two packages of the Valentine’s Sixlets. Of course you could substitute Valentine M&M’s or use regular Sixlets and make them any time of year.
This is my favorite chocolate cookie and it’s easy to mix up however you’d like. I hope you’ll give it a try!
- 2 1/4 cups flour all purpose flour
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 packages (4-ounce each) Sixlets Valentine's candies
- Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment or silpat liners. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and mix until well blended.
- Add flour mixture and mix on low speed just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and Sixlets. (I reserved about 1/3 of the Sixlets and pressed them into the top of the cookie immediately after they came out of the oven.)
- Using a small cookie scoop, drop by rounded scoops on to cookie sheets. Bake for 8 minutes, until edges are set, but still soft in center. Let cookies cool on the cookie tray for five minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
