Toffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Toffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last week as we were cleaning up from dinner my daughter, Totally Tessa, casually mentioned that her Young Women’s group from church were coming over that night (like in 30 minutes) for their weekly activity night.  I went into a little bit of freak out mode because my house wasn’t exactly “company ready.”  I started barking out directions like – get the vacuum, sweep the floor etc.   My next thought was what am I going to serve them?  Yes, I am one of those people that has a really hard time having people over to their house without feeding them something.

It was a cold, rainy night so I decided that nothing tastes better on a night like that than a warm chocolate chip cookie. So I whipped up a batch of these…

Toffee and CHocoalte Chip Cookies

…toffee and chocolate chip cookies.  I love the combination of toffee and chocolate, especially when it’s warm and gooey.  One of my standard kitchen ingredients is a bag of the Heath Bit o Brickle Toffee Bits.  They come in handy to throw into all kinds of things.  Apple Dip is one of my favorites.  But they are pretty amazing in cookies too.

Toffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies

The dough is formed into a ball and then just dip the bottom of a drinking glass into sugar and flatten the cookie to about 1/4 inch thickness.  The addition of the sugar gives the cookie a nice glittery appearance plus a little extra sugar never hurt anyone – right?

The cookie dough itself calls for only brown sugar which I love – it gives the cookie a bit of a “deeper” flavor than just using white sugar or a combination of white/brown sugar.

So next time you have some last minute company mix yourself up a batch of toffee and chocolate chip cookies.  Or don’t wait until you have company and do it now!  Of course they are best served with a glass of ice cold milk!

    Looks super delish. I would totally go into freak out mode too… you aren’t alone LA! =) Glad you are wise enough to have a good stash of go-to recipes to make all of those young ladies’ mouths happy.

    I usually don’t comment until I try something, but I’m so excited because I’m making this tonight! Our daughter in law is having a group of friends over tonight and these will be a perfect thing for me to throw together for them! THANKS!

    Ha ha! I react the same way when someone in the family springs a meeting at the house in a 1/2 hr. or less before it is to happen. Usually it’s my husbands High Priest Group Meeting. I always HAVE to have something for them to eat too.
    The cookie recipe looks great!

    Leigh Anne Do you bake these cookies at 300 degrees because they take longer to bake than the normal 8-10 minutes. Thanks I am making them tonight for my embroidery class tomorrow.

  5. Joy says

    Ok…so I tried the cookies last night and they were a hit! So thanks for another great recipe to add to my collection!

    I made a batch of these on the weekend and they are gone already. I asked my son if he wanted to bake cookies today and he picked this recipe again. We are baking them as I type this.
