2 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
milk chocolate chips
4 (1 ounce) squares
bittersweet chocolate, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
white chocolate, chopped
chopped toasted pecans
toffee baking bits
I made a few small changes in this recipe and they came out pretty good. I ran out of butter so I used a 1/2 c of shortening and a 1/2 c butter, I added 1/2 t of butter pecan extract along with the vanilla, and I somehow didn't have any semisweet chocolate chips in the house (a travesty, I know) so I ended up only using milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate chunks in addition to the toasted pecans and toffee bits. There was so much stuff in the batter that I thought an ice cream scoop would suffice to scoop them out, and they turned out like big coffee shop cookies. Pretty tasty, but nothing way out of this world.
ok nothing special, tastes like any other cookie --- Sorry!
These are the best cookies ever! I followed some of the other users' alterations and added some of my own for even better results. I substituted the following: 1 tsp. butter nut flavoring and 1 tsp. vanilla (instead of 2 tsp. vanilla), semi-sweet instead of bittersweet chunks, add 1/2 c. toasted walnuts, use a whole bag of toffee bits and add 1 c. toasted coconut. I also used Scharfenberger and El Rey chocolate for the chunks and Ghiradelli for the chips. Next time I'm going to try adding macadamia nuts!
I am amazed that more people have not tried this recipe. I have people placing orders and paying me for these cookies. I did vary the recip though. Instead of using vanilla extract, I used Vanilla Butter Nut flavoring by McCormick (much richer taste). I also didn't use bittersweet chunks but used semisweet chunks. I also tend to be pretty heavy handed on the toffee chips. Additionally, I used walnuts and pecans. This is a great recipe!!
Spectacular is right. Very, very good cookies.
It is a family favorite of ours for many years!! If you double the recipe, you just add a package of each type of chocolate and of the toffee tibbits. I replaced the squares by the Hershey's chunks package. Much quicker than cutting the chocolate into pieces! I do the same for the white chocolate.
The cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 1 month. We just pop them out of the freezer and re-heat in microwave for 6 sec each cookie. :)
