My husband has the ultimate sweet-tooth. He requests cookies often. I usually make some type of chocolate chip cookie. My rationale is that I should at least make my favorite while I’m at it. This time I decided to kick it up a notch and add some rich buttery toffee to the mix. I also used several different kinds of chocolate chips. I really like to combine the bittersweet with the milk chocolate to add some complexity to the taste. I always try to use the best chocolate that I can find. I think that it makes a huge difference between good and great cookies.
Chocolate Chip Heath Bar Cookies
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup Heath bar bits
1 cup Heath bar bits with chocolate
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl, mix melted butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Add vanilla extract, egg, and egg yolk. Mix well. Next, add flour mixture until just blended. Stir in Heath bar bits and chocolate chips. Scoop with a 2 tablespoon scoop onto a prepared baking sheet. Mash cookies down with a spoon.
Bake cookies for 17-20 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
