Chunky Chocolate Gobs

I was browsing on and the name of this caught my eye.
Anything called a chocolate gob HAS to be good!
I adapted the original recipe to fit my family's taste...I think any gooey candy bar can be used successfully.
I also used the half vanilla, half chocolate (store brand) cream filled cookies, it gave a little color.

These were as incredible as the name implies...we all loved them.

¾ Cup unsalted butter
⅓ Cup shortening
1 Cup granulated sugar
⅔ Cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 Large eggs
2 Tsp vanilla extract
2 Cups all purpose flour
⅔ Cup unsweetened chocolate
1 Tsp baking soda
¼ Tsp salt
2 Cups cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies (chopped)
3 Large or 5 Mini Milky Way bars
1-2 Cups semisweet chocolate morsels

1. Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy
2. Gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy
3. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until blended
4. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients, gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended
5. Stir in cookies, candy bars, and desired amount of chocolate morsels
6. Chill dough 30 minutes
7. Drop dough by ¼ cupfulls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper
8. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until barely set.
9. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes, transfer to wire rack to cool completely
