Heath Bar Cookies are full of buttery toffee and delicious melty chocolate. Betcha can't eat just one!
Growing up, Heath Bars were a staple item in our home. My dad is a self-professed chocolate and toffee lover; so naturally, Heath Bars are pretty much his favorite thing – ever.
I wasn’t so fond of them when I was a kid, so they’d stay out in the open unlike the Nerds and Taffy that my mom had to hide from my brother and I. It was either that, or she’d end up spending her afternoon vacuuming up Nerds from the carpet that we’d try to discreetly scarf down when she wasn’t looking.
Nerds - those little irregularly shaped bits of fruity goodness are still one of my absolute favorites, but this post isn’t about Nerd Cookies – although now I’m thinking, maybe it should be. Perhaps I should write that idea down for next month’s Food Fanatic post.
As I’ve gotten older, my love for fruity and sour candies remains the same; however, I’ve started throwing some chocolate into the mix. And I must say, I’m now quite fond of toffee as well. I’ve made Heath Bar Cupcakes and Chocolate Toffee Poke Cakes – just to name a couple. And today, I’m coming at ya, with a recipe for Heath Bar Cookies.
I’ve taken one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes and kicked them up a notch or two with extra chocolate chips and a ridiculous amount of Heath Toffee Bits. Did you know that you can find bags of chopped Heath Bars in the baking aisle? They’re super convenient for recipes like this, and let’s be honest here, what’s better than little poppable nuggets of toffee drenched in chocolate? Maybe chocolate covered Nerds? I’m kidding – kind of.
And if you're feeling extra decadent, go ahead and turn these cookies into Heath Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Completely over the top, but in the best kind of way.
