What you need

1 bar (95 g) AERO® 70% Dark Chocolate Tablet
1 cup (250 ml) butter, softened
3/4 cup (175 ml) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (175 ml) packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
2 cups (500 ml) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 ml) large flake oats
1 cup (250 ml) shredded coconut
2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cinnamon
2 cups (500 mL) salted pretzels
1 cup (250 ml) unsalted peanuts
1 cup (250 ml) butterscotch chips

How to prepare


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Using electric mixer, beat together butter, granulated and brown sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Stir together flour, oats, coconut, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir into butter mixture until smooth.

Stir in chocolate, pretzels, peanuts and butterscotch chips. Drop 2 tablespoonfuls of batter per cookie onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Bake on top and bottom racks, rotating and switching pans halfway through, for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden. Let cool on rack.


Make nut-free

Replace peanuts with raisins, dried cranberries or sour cherries for a nut-free cookie.
