I love Heath bars. Every time I see them in the store I smile because I remember how a friend in high school would eat them just because she loved Heath Ledger. haha.
Anyways, this recipe is adapted from simplerecipes.com. She used walnuts, but I figured chocolate chips would be a better fit with the toffee because it makes the cookies more like eating a whole heath bar!
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chopped Heath Bar bits (buy the ones without chocolate because we’ll be adding chocolate! You can get them in the baking section)
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
2 Beat together the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, and vanilla.
3 Alternatively mix in the Heath Bar mixture and the flour mixture, a third at a time, until well blended. Chill cookie dough for at least 30 minutes (better an hour, and make sure you do chill them so they don’t spread as much!).
4 Preheat oven to 350°F. On cookie sheets lined with parchment paper spoon out the cookie dough in small 1-inch diameter balls. Place dough balls 3 inches away from each other on the cookie sheets. (Make sure there is plenty of room between the cookie balls).
Anyways, these are so delicious (if you like toffee, or even if you don’t since my cousin claimed she didn’t and still ate 3 cookies). The one thing that I have noticed though is that the toffee makes the cookies rather hard, so these are best eaten fresh!
