Quick...I'm in the middle of making cookies for my niece's graduation party tomorrow and I'm trying to decide between two recipes. Has anyone made the CHEWY SKOR TOFFEE BITS COOKIES recipe that is on the back of the Skor toffee bits bag?? It looks like a standard chocolate chip cookie recipe except with toffee bits instead of choc. chips and it also only calls for 1 stick of butter instead of 2. I actually bought the toffee bits to make Toffee Pecan Bars, but now I can't decide. Any comments?? Or I could also make the Sprarkling Butter Toffee Cookies (which I've made before). Decisions, decisions...
BTW, I've already made Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies and Chocolate Pretzel Rings (some with Rolos and some with Kisses and using mini pretzel twists instead of pretzel rings).
