  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup salted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, tightly packed
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 10-12 drops royal blue food coloring gel
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (½ cup for topping)
  • 1 ½ cups white baking chips (½ cup for topping)
  • 40 milk chocolate candy melt wafers (for the center of the cookies)
  • 1 cup broken mini Chips Ahoy, optional garnish
  • 1 cup broken mini Oreo cookies, optional garnish


  1. Prepare Dry Mix: Whisk together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugars: In a mixer, beat butter until smooth, add sugars and vanilla, and mix until fluffy.
  3. Add Eggs: Incorporate eggs one at a time, then blend in food coloring until the color is even.
  4. Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients: Gradually mix in dry ingredients until just combined, then stir in chocolate and baking chips.
  5. Chill: Cover dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Shape Cookies: Scoop dough with a 3-tablespoon scoop, flatten slightly, place candy melt wafers in the center, and roll into balls.
  7. Bake: Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart, and bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes.
  8. Add Toppings: Immediately after baking, press additional cookies and chips into the tops of the cookies.
  9. Cool: Let cookies rest on the baking sheet for 5-7 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


  • Ensure the food coloring is evenly mixed for a vibrant blue color.
  • Do not overbake; cookies should be just golden around the edges.
  • Allow cookies to cool on the pan to set properly before moving.


Q: Can I substitute the candy melt wafers with something else? A: Yes, you can use any large chocolate chunk or additional chocolate chips if candy melt wafers are unavailable.

Q: How can I keep the cookies from spreading too much during baking? A: Make sure to chill the dough thoroughly before baking, and do not overcrowd the baking sheet.
