Some days my sweet tooth gets the better of me, and since today is Jan 17, and that means it’s national Ditch Your New Year’s Resolution Day; surely that calls for a cookie as most of us resolved to live healthier this year! What better way to celebrate this monumental made up day than with a not so simple cookie. This delicious Chewy Peanut Butter Toffee Cookie is sure to make ditching your resolution for a day worth it! I’m not talking about sitting down and binge eating a bowl of cookie dough, just a single cookie (or two, well lets be real, they’re delicious so maybe three!)
It’s not hard to tell what really takes this cookie from the basic peanut butter that we all know, remember the fork marks, that we learned to make with our moms to the extraordinary cookie that this one is. It’s the yummy toffee coating! Dipping it in melted toffee, and then, before it hardens punching it up again with salty peanuts! it’s just OH-MY-WOW! I absolutely love the flavor combinations of this Chewy Peanut Butter Toffee Cookie! Try this one out, and tell me how it turned out for you.
