      I have found a great new holiday cookie. These are a little messy but so worth it. I lined my cookie sheets with parchment paper. Make sure that you leave plenty of space between them as they do spread and make cookies that are slightly crisp on the edges and chewy in the center. I cooked my cookies for 25 minutes. The cookies are quite soft when removing from the oven therefore I would suggest allowing them to cool for several minutes to firm up before attempting the transfer to the cooling racks. The only change I made was with the drizzling chocolate, I used shortening with the chocolate instead of oil. I made these into 1 inch balls and got 38 delicious cookies.

      Used Skor bars for the toffee, mmm good! And with the chocolate from the Skor bars you don't need to drizzle more chocolate on top. Good thing, given my microwave was on the fritz so no way to melt the chocolate.

      Fantastic cookies! I added a bit more flour, about 10 ounces of toffee pieces, drizzled with dark chocolate that had 1/2 tablespoon of shortening. Baked 15 cookies per cookie sheet. Brought them to a Holiday party and received many compliments. They never made it to the freezer.
