So I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while now but just needed a lull in my sweets inventory in the house to do so. Between girl scout cookies, campfire candy, Valentine's day candy and a box of Tim Tams from my trip to Canada, that hasn't actually happened yet, but people were coming over to watch the Oscars so I figured I'd whip them up anyway.
They didn't end up very pretty but they tasted good! I didn't have mini chocolate chips so I used regular semi-sweet chips (don't think it makes much of a difference). I also cut the recipe in half as I really didn't need more sweets in the house.
They were a nice twist on an easy recipe. Bonnie's boyfriend Pete was a little confused by the concept (a chocolate, chocolate chip cookie stuffed with cookies and cream candy), but I say "Why not?!" They were a little caramelized on the bottom but definitely not a disaster (unlike the frozen pizza that slipped off the baking sheet as I was taking it out of the oven, and landed cheese-side-down on the floor. Oh, and I accidentally baked it with the cardboard still on, so the dough was still raw. Oops.)

|Not so pretty but not on the floor, so that's a plus!|
|Cross-section so you can see the cookies and creme goodness. See, they are all fancy in their black and white for the Oscars :)|
