Heath Bar Toffee Cookies

toffee cookies

Yesterday was such a busy day! Well, I wasn’t really busy, but everyone around me was. I had dinner with my boyfriend’s parents (for the first time!) and it was not as scary as I thought it would be…most likely due to his awesome sister in law and her cute little pups! So this lady is pregnant and has a sweet tooth,which makes an awesome combination to her brother in law’s super cool girlfriend who loves to bake. Usually she volunteers(okay…so I may or may not force bake goods into her hand on a weekly basis) to be a taste-tester to my recipes. This week I switched it up and had her choose what I was going to bake. And she chose something I absolutely love, toffee cookies!  So I decided on a simple cookie recipe with toffee bits folded into it.

I hope you enjoy!
