I love these candies and often pick up a box while I'm in the United States. I found this recipe on the Sugar Babies website and it turned out really good. They were a little more crunchy than chewy, so when I make these again, I'm going to lower the baking time.
What you'll need:
3 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Ground Allspice
1 stick (4 oz) Butter, room temperature
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Molasses
1 tbsp Corn Syrup
5 bags of Sugar Babies (1.7 oz bags)
1/2 cup Sugar for garnish
Preheat oven to 375° and spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray.
In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and spices. Set aside.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix thoroughly.
Fold in the Sugar Babies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Don't be surprised if your Sugar Babies melt like mine did on the pan. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Next time I might line the baking sheet with parchment to make the clean up easier afterwards.
The best bites are the ones that have the chewy Sugar Babies in them. Yum!
This recipe makes about 24 large cookies.
