This is one of my favorite cookies to make, as they are the perfect combination of chewy and gooey. A great trick is to make sure to only cook them for about 10 minutes and then let them finish cooking after you take them out, while they rest on the cookie sheet.
You can basically use any candy bar you like in it! If you want them to be traditional toffee cookies, use a Heath Bar… if you want to add nuts, one of my favorite ways is to chop up a Snickers! Any way you go, it’s bound to be delicious!
