Chocolate Chip Buttercrunch Cookies

If you saw yesterday's blog post with that decadent hot beverage, Sweater Weather Swirl (If not, you must! Click here.), you may also have seen a pair of cookies next to the cup. I'd made those earlier in the week, and found them the perfect accompaniment for my hot spiked cocoa.

For someone who claims they don't like chocolate chip cookies all that much, I tend to make a lot of variations. This is my latest, and I think greatest, because it incorporates two of my favorite candies into one delicious cookie. I'm talking chocolate chips, broken up Butterfinger bars, as well as chocolate covered English toffee bits. Doesn't that sound heavenly? I also added nuts, but you can decide on your own if that's an addition that you'd like to make. You might want to give these a try if you have Halloween candy left over, they freeze beautifully, so consider making miniature ones to add to your holiday cookie tray. Whatever you do, try these!
Chocolate Chip Buttercrunch Cookies

​½ cup margarine - (1 stick)

½ cup butter - (1 stick)

3/4 cup brown sugar, packed

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 ½ cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 cup mini chocolate chips

2/3 cup crushed Butterfinger bits

2/3 cup Heath Bits 'o Brickle

1 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Cream the margarine and butter with the brown and granulated sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and add to the creamed mixture. Stir in the chocolate, Butterfinger bits, and Bits o Brickle  along with the nuts.

Drop rounded spoonfuls of batter 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet. Bake the cookies until they're pale golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes.

Makes about 48 cookies.
