Bits o’ Brickle Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite Heath Bits Cookies. I first served them at a Girl Scout meeting, and the girls gave them rave reviews. They are basically classic Snickerdoodles with Heath toffee bits replacing part of the sugar. The girls recognized them right away as Snickerdoodles, and liked the added texture and flavor of the toffee bits. Interestingly, the adults in the group preferred these peanut butter cookies. Maybe the sweetness of the Snickerdoodles appealed more to the girls? I don’t know.

Never thought to add toffee bits to snickerdoodles. Great idea!
I often put either Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips or Vanilla Chips in the Snickerdoodles.
Taneka, I used Hershey’s Heath bits. Most stores are around here carry them. Does anyone else in NYC know a grocery store that sells toffee bits or some sort of brickle? I’m really surprised D’Agostino doesn’t have them. Anyway, I don’t think Heath bars would work too well because the bits it these particular cookies are not the chocolate coated ones. Then again, they might. Wish I could give you a better answer.
Those cookies look so tasty!
Do you have a consistent/reliable source for the toffee bits? When I was in MD there was one supermarket that was guaranteed to have these on their shelf but I have not been as lucky finding a place in NY that carries toffee bits. I suppose I could always just buy Heath Bars and chop them up but then I don’t consistent sizes as I would in a bag of toffee bits.
