Toffee Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Good Morning!

Toffee Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies- so much deliciousness in one cookie- it's a must try!

It’s cookie swap time!! When Rachel, one of my best blogging friends, sent out an email proposing this virtual cookie swap idea, I was super excited. I think I emailed her back within about 2 minutes of receiving the email :)

Toffee Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies- so much deliciousness in one cookie- it's a must try!

I immediately started thinking about what fun new combination I wanted to try for these cookies. I had recently bought a bag of toffee bits and knew I wanted to use those. After some googling, I found several recipes that I used for inspiration:

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies
Rolo Stuffed Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate Chip, Toffee & Almond Cookies
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies

Then I used my favorite recipe combining method and came up with one that I was excited to try.

The result? Delicious. When I originally made this recipe, I used 1 c peanut butter and I think the peanut butter slightly overwhelmed the toffee taste, so I scaled the amount back for the recipe. I also slightly overbaked mine so they were nice and crunchy. If you want them softer, bake for less time, or just throw a piece of bread into the container you store them in and they’ll soften right up!
