    Prep cookie dough

    • Pro Tip: Leave butter and eggs at room temperature for 1 hour before beginning. This will soften butter for easy mixing and ensure more even distribution of eggs in the dough.
    • In medium bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
    • In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment or in large bowl with wooden spoon, combine butter and sugar; mix until creamy and well incorporated.
    • Add egg and vanilla extract; mix well.
    • Add flour mixture; mix for 30 seconds to thoroughly blend dough.
    • Add mix-ins. Add quick oats, M&Ms® and Kit Kats®; mix for 30 seconds to evenly distribute.
