Toffee Chunk Oat Cookies

by on August 27, 2011 · 10 comments

Today’s cookie is perfect with coffee. In fact, you can skip the cream because the cookie has the creamer it it! These oatmeal cookies have a dash of Coffee Mate Belgian Chocolate Toffee flavored coffee creamer (the powdered type) for added flavor. You can, of course, vary the flavors, but I had some toffee bars in the pantry and matching them with toffee flavored creamer seemed like a good idea at the time.

I was very happy with these cookies and loved how the powdered creamer added a subtle note of toffee flavor. In fact, I liked it so much I’m going to try a second batch with one of their new flavors (Caramel Macchiato, Café Latte, and White Chocolate Caramel Latte) and switch up the add-ins. For instance, white chocolate chunks with the new White Chocolate Caramel Latte. I’ll let you know how it goes.

I love when there’s an interesting ingredient in cookies and they turn out well! All those creamer flavors do sound good in a cookie. I like how thick they look. Seems when I’ve made cookies with toffee, they usually come out thin.

Interesting timing with this recipe. This past week I talked myself out of purchasing a bag of Heath Bars. I really wanted those little toffee bars!!

Toffee must be on the brain. Yesterday I made the Chocolate Fudge Brownie with Toffee and Dried Cherries from Regan Daley’s “In the Sweet Kitchen”. Skor bars seem to have disappeared from our stores and I had to use Heath Bars, which I consider inferior. I found a recipe for homemade Daim Bars. I’ll have to make them when I get a chance to see how they compare to Daim Bars, which are the best.

Yum, they look amazing! I love toffee in cookies, and I love cookies with coffee – obviously this is the perfect recipe for me. Thanks for sharing!

MMM yummy! Love chunks of toffee in cookies.

I wonder if the folks at Hershey think one of their products is inferior to the other since they make both Heath and Skor?

Love the idea of adding powdered coffee creamer for extra flavor! Wish I could just reach right into my computer screen and sneek one of your cookies from the plate….they look SO good! :-)

I love toffee! Why I have never made cookies with toffee, I will never know! Changing it up! Heath bars are my favorite candy, so I welcome this recipe. Can’t wait to try it. It sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing!
