TOFFEE CRUNCH COOKIES are easy to make and always a crowd pleaser!
This year for Christmas I am determined to enjoy every single second. In the past, I’ve found myself caught up in the minutia of the holiday – rushing around to get things done and going overboard.
This year, I’m putting a stop to it all. I’m taking time to enjoy the holidays. I’m going to enjoy decorating, instead of trying to out-do myself from previous years. I’m going to make Christmas projects with my son. I’m going to sit by the fire and just enjoy my tree. And, I’m going to bake cookies. I’m not going to churn out cookies like a bakery. I’m going to make small batches of our family favorites with my son. While listening to our favorite Christmas music and singing off-key. And, we’re going to enjoy every second of it.
One of our favorite holiday cookies are these Minty Surprise Cookies. We’ve made them for years and everyone loves them. To mix things up a bit, I swapped out the mint for toffee. The result was an instant hit!
These Toffee Crunch Cookies are easy to make and a great recipe to have the kids help with. You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe (here’s mine) or you can totally cheat and use a cookie mix from the grocery store. Either way, they will turn out great!
I drizzled mine with melted milk chocolate, but you can also drizzle white chocolate mixed red or green food coloring to give them a more festive look. Or even sprinkle chopped up toffee candies on top.
Because they’re so easy to make, these cookies are great for holiday cookie exchanges. It’s not hard at all to whip up big batches of them.
Best wishes from my family to yours for a happy and healthy holiday season!
