  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1⅓ c flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

  • ½ c mini butterscotch chips
  • ½ c graham crackers, finely chopped (do not use crumbs)
  • ⅓ c rolled oats
  • 2½ tsp ground coffee
  • 2 c potato chips
  • 1 c mini pretzels
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add butter, sugars and corn syrup. Mix for 2 minutes and scrape down sides.
  3. Add egg and vanilla; mix again for about 7 minutes
  4. In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and mix for no longer than 1 minute. Scape down sides again.
  5. On low speed, add in chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, graham pieces, oats and coffee; mix for about 30 seconds. Add the potato chips and pretzels and mix gently until just combined (do not over mix).
  6. Using a small baking scoop, portion out dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Pat the cookies flat and put trays in freezer for 10 minutes (or fridge for an hour)
  7. Arrange the chilled dough about 3 inches apart and bake for 9-12 minutes or until just golden. They should only be golden around the outside but not through the middle. *CHECK OFTEN TO PREVENT BURNING.
  8. Transfer the cooled cookies to a serving tray or an airtight container for storage. They will keep at room temperature for 4-5 days and in the freezer for a month.
  9. Remember to drink with a big glass of milk!!!
