I just love holiday baking! While I’m not a big sweets eater, I love baking cookies, fudge, bark, etc. for friends and neighbors. There is just something about baking that puts me in the mood for Christmas, if I don’t bake it doesn’t seem right!
I was invited to a cookie swap with the moms group I’m in, so naturally I was very excited to go. I brought some mint chocolate cookies, which is actually the first recipe ever to appear on my blog and one I got at another cookie swap! All of the cookies at the recent swap were great, but there was one in particular I knew my husband would go gaga over, Kim’s Toffee Crunch Cookies. The hubs LOVES anything toffee and these were pretty knock your socks off good. And they’re really REALLY easy to make. I think I know what Santa is getting this year!
Toffee Crunch Cookies
Recipe from Kim B., originally from Secret Ingredients
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine, softened
1 package yellow butter cake mix WITH pudding (she says to make sure to get the one with pudding, it makes a difference)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1.5 cups Heath candy pieces with chocolate
1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine the margarine, cake mix and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Stir in the Heath candy and pecans.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on a parchment paper or silicone mat lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
