Toffee Crunch Cookies

on April 27, 2016

Grandma and Grandpa always had Heath Bars around the house and now I know why. It has to be because of these Toffee Crunch Cookies. I would highly suggest that you only make these cookies for a very special occasion. Something VERY special like the Queen of England is stopping by to celebrate her 90th birthday with you or the Pope is coming for afternoon coffee. These are so very decadent and so very delicious, that you will want to save them for very special occasions – oh who are we kidding – make them anytime you’re in the mood for something very decadent and celebratory. That could be today!

We haven’t had one of these for a while, but note the “Very Good” connotation on this one!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Toffee Crunch Cookies

Cream together:

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

Add:

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

Then add the dry ingredients:

1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Next add:

6 Heath candy bars, chopped

1 cup pecans, chopped

Drop 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Cool and frost.

Frosting:

Bring to a boil:

1 cup brown sugar

3 Tablespoons milk

5 Tablespoons butter

Add:

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Beat well.

I’m not kidding – seriously – these are a very special occasion cookie. Look how much candy this is!!!

I used my trusty scoop for these, and it wasn’t easy. They are so full of chopped candy bars and nuts, that there seemed like there was hardly enough dough to hold the goodies together.

Now, this is just my opinion, but these cookies are just great without the frosting. Apparently that’s not enough.

This frosting is actually just like the frosting for Jenny’s Cake, but with brown sugar instead of white sugar.

And yes, it is exactly what it looks like. This is a cookie with a wad of fudge on top. I’m talking decadent here, people.

They are beautiful, but so rich and crunchy from the candy and nuts, and oh so special. You can certainly keep these cookies plain, but if it is a VERY SPECIAL occasion, you can gild the lily and frost them with the fudgy and amazingly delicious frosting. If the queen or the pope can’t make it for a celebration, you can find SOMETHING to celebrate. Maybe today?!!
