Heath Toffee Bits Cookies

Heath Toffee Bits Cookies by

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:

So. Good. About a million times better than the ones with just almonds in them, which leads me to believe that maybe I have a thing for toffee, and I just never really knew it before. So when I saw 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?

Not really. I just don't think that mix of variables can ever turn out bad, right?

A delicious cookie utilizing the Heath Toffee Bits you can find in your local grocery store.

  • 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 ounce bag) Heath Toffee Bits

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. Bake about 10 minutes. Place cookies on cookie rack to cool. Makes about 30 2-inch cookies.
  5. 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.

Tasty, and they last for days. I was still eating them a week later (albeit microwaved for about 8-10 seconds).
