Chocolate Chip Toffee Munchers

For those of you who know me, you know I am always up for a cookie!  In one of my cookbooks it talks about Minnesota Munchers and how fabulous they are so I had to find a recipe.  I found one and knew it was for me.  I made a few changes and must admit, these were fabulous.  I hope you love them too!

Chocolate Chip Toffee Munchers 

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup toffee bits
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans

In a large bowl cream the butter and brown sugar.  Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.  Add the vanilla.  Scrape down the sides.  Combine the flour, corn starch, salt, and baking powder in a separate bowl and stir to mix.  Add the flour to the wet ingredients in two additions, mixing just until the flour is incorporated.  Add the chocolate chips, toffee bits, and pecans and mix on low just until combined.

It is best if you chill the dough for about 2 hours before baking.  But not necessary.

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Use a medium scoop and transfer the dough to an ungreased baking sheet and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are set and the bottoms are golden brown.  (adjust your time as necessary)

Makes 4 dozen medium cookies

    1. I didn't realize you had to wait for a certain time to eat cookies. I just eat them whenever I feel like it. Maybe I have more of a cookie problem than I though! lol. :)
