Day 172: Chocolate Toffee Reeses Pieces Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen cookies
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min

1 cup flour
1/8 cup cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 stick soft butter
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup reeses pieces
½ cup toffee pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. In a mixer, mix the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy, about 2 min
3. Add the vanilla and the egg
4. Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and mix on low until it comes together
5. With a spatula, add the toffee and the reeses pieces and mix until combined
6. Spoon mixture onto a lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake about 10 min until cooked though
7. Make SURE to grease the pan!! Toffee gets sticky! And use your sense of smell to tell when they are done, chocolate is hard to notice.

Notes: This only gets this much because of the reeses pieces. These cookies aren’t that good because I mixed up a butter cookie recipe instead of using a chocolate cookie recipe. If you make it, make a chocolate cookie recipe and add the toffee and pieces. They tasted good (the 12 I didn’t burn) and I made them for my ride to the airport. Thanks mac! Nothing better than reeses pieces..i may try to make more things with them. These are thin, and if you want them less flat, sub some of the butter with shortening. Try them out if you want, but there are lots of changes to be made!
