Chocolate Toffee Cookies

Are you in the mood for some gooey, chocolately, crunchy goodness??? Well you found just the cookie to satisfy your craving! A mix of melted chocolate, toffee and nuts is sure to hit the spot. Enjoy!

Chocolate Toffee Cookies

1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 lb. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 c. unsalted butter (you can really use any kind)
1 3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
4 lg. eggs
1 TB vanilla
7 oz toffee bits or crushed Heath bars
1 c. chopped nuts ( I like walnuts or pecans)

Melt chocolate chips and butter in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Using electric mixer, beat brown sugar and eggs until thick (about 5 min). Add melted chocolate mixture and vanilla and beat until well combined. Mix in flour mixture, then toffee and nuts. Chill batter until firm, about 45 min. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Put balls of dough (about 1/4 c. each) on sheet and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool. Makes about 2 dozen large cookies.
