Praline Chocolate Toffee Cookies

Coming up with new recipes is a favorite pastime for me.  Seriously.  I have a notebook on my nightstand for those ‘ah-ha’ moments that come to me as I’m laying in bed at night.

I don’t eat to live – I live to eat.

These cookies were one of those ‘ah-ha’ moments, although they didn’t come at night like most of mine do.  This one came as I was looking through my baking cabinet – craving something sweet, but not wanting to go to the grocery store either.

I pulled out some toffee chips, pecans, chocolate chips, brown sugar – and I thought, ‘Hey why not put a praline spin on a cookie? Oooh…with chocolate….and toffee!’ 

Sometimes these little cooking adventures work out, and sometimes they don’t.  This one though…. it worked out very much.  Does that make sense?

I don’t really care.  I want another cookie.

    Is that a Temp-tations plate/platter? It doesn’t look familiar, but looks like it matches the Snowflake dessert plates perfectly with that candy cane edge!

      No, it’s not. It’s from the line Home Accents, and I purchased it from Belk’s last year because I thought it matched my snowflake temp-tation pieces perfectly :)
