For this recipe, you will need:
One and a half cups (or three sticks) of salted butter
Three cups light brown sugar
Three large eggs
One and a half teaspoons vanilla extract
Three and a half cups all-purpose flour
One tablespoon baking powder
One-eight teaspoon salt
Assorted candy (I will be using one cup Reese’s Pieces and half a cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups)
Preheat the oven to 350°F and coat a baking pan with cooking spray.
To begin, brown the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Continue to cook the butter for two to three minutes until it looks darker and smells nutty. Transfer all of the browned butter to a heat-proof bowl and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until it is cooled, but is not totally, solidified.
Beat the cooled brown butter and the brown sugar with a stand mixer with the paddle attachment until it turns into a creamy consistency. This should take about two minutes.
Add in eggs and vanilla, then beat till thoroughly combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. In three equal portions to avoid clumps, add in the dry ingredients on low speed. Mix until fully combined.
