Toffee, I never knew I loved thee quite so much.
Fact: Hershey's Nuggets w/ Toffee and Almonds are delicious. They are one of my favorite chocolate candies, period. I could legitimately eat six in a row no problem. I mean just look at it:
Bakerella make some cookies with these new Heath toffee bits, I just had to try them. Toffee, chocolate, peanut butter, can you really go wrong?
Heath Toffee Bits CookiesIngredients
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cup (1 8 oz bag) Heath Toffee Bits
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- In a small bowl, mix flour, soda and salt using a wire whisk and set aside. In another bowl, cream butter, dark brown sugar and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and mix until combined. Stir in toffee bits, reserving some to dip tops of cookies.
- Either use a scoop to to place 1 1/4 inch balls onto a sheet, or roll them after putting the dough in the fridge for a few minutes. Dip tops of cookies in bits and place on parchment paper covered baking sheet (optional).
- Bake about 10 minutes. Place cookies on cookie rack to cool. Makes about 30 2-inch cookies.
- Please note! If you are only able to find the toffee bits that are just plain toffee bits (Bits o' Brickle), don't use the entire bag of toffee bits and you may also want to add in some chocolate chips (and maybe some butterscotch chips to mix things up a bit?!). But if you get the ones that have the chocolate bits, just use the whole bag and not add in anything else. Make sense? Okay.
