I started with chopping up all the chocolate I could readily get my hands on - Kit Kats, Aeros and Twix for the most part - and tempered their extra sweetness (since I usually use bitter or semisweet) with a few bags of crushed potato chips. Realizing I was low on the requisite margarine (the recipe came from Becel), I tossed in the rest of the amount's worth in cream cheese, followed by a scoop of mayonnaise for the eggs (a trick I picked up from Cupcake Project). Scooped and baked off (without the need to chill, although this worked fine as well with subsequent batches), I was rewarded with the perfect amount of soft, chewy, two-bite cookies laden with pops of sweet, salty and crispy treats. Even better, they were the perfect generation-bridging food thanks to the slight tang of the mayo and cream cheese as well as the dark muscovado sugar, and they disappeared before I got a chance to buy one!
