Chewy Toffee Cookies


















Toffee cookies !  Who doesn't like them ?  I DO !  :) I have KIV this recipe and it hasbeen in my to-do list for a year now and finally I managed to get bake them last week.  I tweaked it a bit , added in some chocolates besides snickers and toffee candies.  I substituted pecans with almond nibs and it turned out to be one fantastic tasting toffee cookies.  Needless to say, you can guess who enjoyed them the most...yea the Wild Boar for he loves the ingredients in these cookies.  I love them too but just have to control the sugar intake :p  The sweetness came from the Snickers and toffee candies ...and what more ,I have added some Ritter Sport chocolate in for there were a few pieces left in the fridge....so adding them into the flour mixture made them more chocolatey and gooey :p   Mouth -watering delicious !

















I was inspired by Pook of Daily Delicious and her photos and step by step picture tutorial makes me want to  make them too but it took me a year to finally made them.  I like it and I am sure kids will love them too.  Great for afternoon tea snacks for the children :)  What she say is so true...these cookies are old time favourite that never ages at all !  The aroma of toffee and chocolate can make you crave for more and you just dont want to stop eating them.  It looks like a biscotti and you can enjoy it as it is or dip into your cuppa coffee or milk   Love them all :)










Snickers, toffee candies and some chocolate 
makes this cookie taste good :)










cut the snickers into 1 cm pieces and crushed 
the toffee candies with a pestle before 
adding them into the flour mixture

















you can shape them into a log of 1.5 " width 
and 3/4" thick..it will rise and spread a bit because of the
the baking powder  

















I shaped them into biscotti  size :p
so it turned out bigger slices

















 added in more almonds for a more
nut and crunch feel


















Chewy Toffee Cookies - adapted from Daily Delicious

Ingredients:-

100g  Brown sugar
50g  Granulated sugar
115g  Unsalted butter
¼ cup Vegetable oil
3 Eggs
1tbsp   Vanilla extract
430g   All-purpose flour
1½tsp   Baking powder
¼tsp  Salt
165g   Snickers® bar*
50g   Werther's Original®*
114g  Pecan pieces, toasted  * 
I used almond nibs

Methods:- 

1. Put the toffee in the plastic bag and crush it with a pan. Cut the Snickers® bar into 1cm pieces.
2. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside. 
3. Beat the butter with oil until blend, add both of the sugar and beat until combine.
4. Add egg, one at a time, beat well after each addition, add the vanilla extract, beat to combine.
5. Pour the flour mixture into the bowl, and beat with low speed until just combined.
6. Add the toffee, chocolate bar bits, and pecan, stir to combine.
7. Cover the bowl with plastic warp and refrigerate for 1 hour.
8. Preheat the oven to 180 °C
9. Line the baking sheet with baking paper or silicone baking mat.
10. Shape the dough into logs, about 1½ inches wide, leaving 2 inches in between.
11. Bake for 20-25 minutes, the top will crack and toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean, but the logs will still feel soft to the touch. Do not overbake. Transfer to a wire rack for 15 minutes, then cut into 1-inch pieces.
