Praline Chocolate Toffee Cookies

Coming up with new recipes is a favorite pastime for me.  Seriously.  I have a notebook on my nightstand for those 'ah-ha' moments that come to me as I'm laying in bed at night.  

I don't eat to live - I live to eat.

These cookies was one of those 'ah-ha' moments, although they didn't come at night like most of mine do.  This one came as I was looking through my baking cabinet - craving something sweet, but not wanting to go to the grocery store either.  

I pulled out some toffee chips, pecans, chocolate chips, brown sugar - and I thought, 'Hey why not put a praline spin on a cookie? Oooh...with chocolate....and toffee!'

Sometimes these little cooking adventures work out, and sometimes they don't.  This one though - worked out very much.  Does that make sense?  I don't really care.  I want another cookie.

Praline Chocolate Toffee Cookies

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1.5 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (11.5oz) bag of toffee baking bits
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar.  Beat in eggs, one at a time; stir in the vanilla.  Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt - stir into the creamed mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips, toffee bits, and pecans.  Drop by tablespoon fulls onto a cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven.  Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
