Sometimes a great recipe idea comes to you just by using the ingredients leftover in your pantry. My Butterscotch Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe was created just this way.
Last week, I was straightening up my pantry and I saw that I had a variety of baking chips leftover from other baking days. There was just a small amount of each. When this happens, I set them all out on the counter and start moving them around to see what would taste good together. Butterscotch Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies was the result for this day.
I started with the Nestles Toll House Cookie dough recipe. Then, I added butterscotch chips, milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and chocolate toffee bits.
Bake and transfer to a cooling rack. These were so good warm. They have just a mild taste of the butterscotch.
They are perfect at this stage, but I had a cup of white melting chocolate leftover, so I thought I could use it.
I melted the discs, drizzled over a few of the cookies, and sprinkled some more toffee bits on them. I was a little disappointed. This made them too rich.
My handsome grandson, Bobby, tried one and said it was very good, but I know he was just being nice.
Then I melted a few milk chocolate chips, dipped part of the cookie in it, and sprinkled some toffee bits. I liked them this way. They are still just a little rich tasting.
They go great with a glass of cold milk.
I took these cookie variations to my neighbors for a taste test and their favorite way was with the melted chocolate.
Butterscotch Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies are a great
variation to a chocolate chip cookie. I will be heading back to the pantry to see what creation develops next.
