Oh my gosh! These are SO good! I used a bag of SKOR toffee chips instead of chopping up the candy bars, and milk chocolate chips... and they were a HUGE hit!

This recipe was very disappointing. I was expecting great things, since two of my favorite items (chocolate and toffee) are included, but I found this to be only a so so cookie. I will throw this recipe out! My search for the ultimate chocolate chip cookie continues.

Wonderful Recipe!!!!!! We loved it! I live at a high altitude so i used a little less flour and added one more egg and baked them for a bit longer and they turned out beautifully. I used a Calphalon cookie sheet liner and the cookies lifted easily. My husband came home and ate 8 before dinner! This recipe is an absolute keeper! My only suggestion is to make sure to spoon out a small amount onto your cookie sheet because they really expand, I did only 8 at a time, but they turned out perfectly!

My boyfriend is a firefighter so when I saw this, I felt I just HAD to make them for him. Although he really enjoyed them, I don't think they are his "favorite." I'm not much of a cookie fan so I found them to be good enough that I will make them again, but they don't deserve the five star rating. Guests who were over while we were baking them attributed to their disapearance. Still very good and will pass on the recipe.

Absolutely the best cookie recipe I've ever tried!! Each time we make this recipe, we've experimented with different types of toffee things. The best we've done so far is chop up those bite sized heath crunches. ALso good was adding chocolate chips, a symphony bar with almonds and toffee, and some of those toffee bits I found in with the chocolate chip section put out by Skor. Fabulous recipe though, the cookies don't last around us!! :) I'll probably be making this every week from now on. Mmmm

These were delicious! I used margarine since I didn't have butter, and used 1/2 tsp baking powder, 3/4 tsp soda so they'd be fluffy. They came out PERFECT, and I don't always have good luck with choc chip cookies for some reason. I think next time I'll use more toffee bits & maybe less chocolate chips; like 1.5 cups choc chips, and 12 or more candy bars chopped up.

I would cut down the baking soda a tich as it has that excessive soda flavor. Otherwise a good cookie.
