I hope you all had a festive and fun-filled July 4th weekend!  I had a great time with family and friends at our lake cabin and I am back to help you get through the post-holiday work week with Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Is there anything more perfect than the sweet and salty combination of a chocolate-covered toffee bar?  Heath bars have always been a favorite of mine because I am such a texture person and I love their crunch.  When I saw a recipe that reminded me of this famed candy bar, I couldn’t wait to put my own twist on it!  Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies have the texture of a perfect sugar cookie:  slightly crispy on the outside edges while thick and soft in the middle.  I couldn’t resist tossing in some miniature chocolate chips in addition to Heath bits because there has never been a case of too much chocolate.

The fact that these Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies only have brown sugar in them coupled with the mixed in toffee bits give these cookies such a rich buttery flavor that dunking them in a cold glass of milk just may be the ideal way to eat them.  Or I mean it is summer after all, why not sandwich some vanilla ice cream in between two Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies for a hot summer afternoon treat?

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 16 minutes

Total Time: 26 minutes

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

Buttery sweet and slightly salty toffee flavors shine through these crackled cookies that are slightly crisp on the edges but soft in the middle

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (16 Tbsp) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Heath Bits
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until well blended.
  4. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt until combined.
  5. Finally, mix in Heath Bits and mini chocolate chips.
  6. Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  7. Place the granulated sugar into a small, shallow bowl. Press the bottom of a small juice glass into the bowl of cookie dough (to grease the glass so that the sugar sticks to it) and then into the sugar.
  8. Gently press the sugared glass onto a ball of cookie dough to flatten lightly. Repeat with remaining balls of dough.
  9. Bake 14-18 minutes or until edges are firm.
  10. Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Baking
