Toffee Chip Cookies

When you make a batch of toffee, you’re left with two options:

Eat the entire batch as is or make other stuff with it.

I figured Nick and I wouldn’t be able to eat the full batch on our own, and being the cookie monster he is, I know he’s always up for a fresh batch.

Besides, what could be better than homemade chocolate covered toffee IN buttery, crispy, warm out of the oven cookies?

All I’ll say is this: It’s a good thing I do most of my baking when Nick isn’t home. That’s the only guarantee I have to actually try the treats I make.

My favorite things about this recipe are that it makes 12 good sized cookies, meaning only one cookie sheet to use and clean, AND they’re whole wheat.

Whole grain flour totally balances out the butter, I think.

  8. You’re killing me with this toffee… those cookies look SOOOO good!

  9. oh my gosh–those cookies have the perfect texture! I want to make…toffee or no toffee!

  10. I agree–the whole wheat flour totally balances out the use of butter! :-) These look amazing.

  11. LOVE this recipe! I’m a huge fan of making a smaller batches of cookies. I usually cut a regular batch in half when I make them for just Josh & I. And I bet the homemade toffee really made these!

  12. Oo love how you used up the extra toffee–perfect! :-)

  13. Toffee is one of my all time favorite cookie mix ins.
    and brownie mix ins.
    and oatmeal.
    and yogurt….

    apparently, i love toffee.

  14. Oh my goodness! These look beyond amazing! To make them even healthier, try replacing the sugar with palm sugar or maple syrup, and the wheat flour with a mix of spelt and brown rice flour. YUM! Thanks for sharing :)

  15. Mmmm, cookies! Love that you made a smaller batch of cookies, it’s very smart.
