So the other day, I was munching on one of my favorite candy bars – a Heath Bar – when I thought, “Hey, this would be great in a cookie!!” Unfortunately, Google showed me I wasn’t the first person to have this grand idea. Nonetheless, I took my standard chocolate chip cookie recipe and just substituted the chocolate chips for chopped Heath Bars and whoa, mama, it was good! The best part was how the toffee melted a bit when cooking and spread through the cookie. They are crunchy and the sweet and salty thing just makes these irresistible.
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 8 Heath Bars (1.4 oz each) (or other toffee bar of your choice)
- Cream butter and sugar together until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
- Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl and gradually stir into butter/sugar mixture.
- Coarsely chop Heath Bars and add them to the dough.
- Spoon dough onto greased cookie sheet (or one lined with a Silpat mat or parchment paper) in 1 tablespoon amounts. I highly recommend a cookie scoop for this.
- Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Makes about 4 dozen.
