Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

29 Mar

I suck at being a girl. I can’t curl my hair without burning my scalp, I can’t paint my nails without the nail polish getting all over my fingers, I can’t even hold a steak knife properly. Ever since I was little, I have held the knife in a death grip until my mom  showed me the proper way ( I was disgracing her french heritage after all).  The one thing I can do that is slightly girly is bake, but I somehow even mess that up sometimes.  I am so ADD that when I try to follow a recipe, I forget the extra cup of flour or the ever so important baking soda, so these ingredients never actually get mixed in the proper order. However, there are some days when the fates align and my mistakes turn into something so good that I don’t even know how it happened. For example, yesterday, I made Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. I did not have vanilla extract so I put french vanilla extract instead and a dash of almond extract.  The cookies tasted like vanilla pudding with toffee and chocolate mixed in. This recipe will definitely be my new go to cookie recipe. So remember to gut through your mistakes and try something a little different every once in awhile.  You might create something you love even more then the original.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon french vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 large egg
  • 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup of Heath Bits-o-Brickle Toffee Bits
  1. PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and french vanilla extract and almond extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and Heath Bits. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely

    Dang, those look and sound fantastic. Grandpa used to make toffee, mom used to make toffee, and I’m apparently useless. I need to try these sometime soon
