It was nice having a break from cooking and baking while we were in Palm Beach. Our room did have a full kitchen, which was nice so we didn’t have to eat out all of the time. We didn’t do any major cooking though. By the end of the week I was itching to get back to my kitchen. I missed my appliances, gadgets, and oven.

After unpacking, cleaning, doing laundry, I baked cookies. Our friends were visiting from California and I wanted to make them an extra special treat. I took my chances and made up a new cookie recipe. I wanted to create a cookie with all of my favorite things: almonds, toffee, chocolate chips, and oatmeal.

I started with a basic chocolate chip oatmeal cookie base. I then added in almond extract, chopped almonds, chopped Heath bars, and chocolate chips. The cookies were loaded with goodies!

I know I baked these cookies for our friends, but of course I had to sample them, just to make sure they were safe and good enough to handout:) One bite and I was in heaven! These are my new favorite cookie! I LOVED them! The toffee melted throughout the oatmeal cookie. The almond bits and chocolate chips bulked up the cookies in the most perfect way.

I am glad I wrapped these cookies up and gave them away. I know if they were sitting on the counter I would not be able to resist. They are that good!

  4. These look amazing! They're like English toffee oatmeal cookies, with the almonds and the chocolate.

  5. I've done a similar one, well, I guess it just had chocolate and almonds, but I loved them. You've just added another dimension with the oats and toffee! Yum-o!

  6. clearly, all you had to say was "heath" and i was on board. that's one of the finest candy bars ever made. question: what in the world is the difference between heath and skor?

  7. They look THAT good. I'd love these w/ the added almonds and toffee- my two fave things to incorporate into baked goods!

  13. Going shopping soon for the ingredients for these cookies! About the Heath bars, what size bar do you use – the big full-size one or the smaller snack size bars? or can i use the Heath toffee bits? Thank you!
