    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (10 ounce) can salted mixed nuts (coarsely chop the Brazil nuts)
    • 1 (16 1/2 ounce) Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, 1 roll
    • 1 cup toffee pieces
    • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
    • 1/3 cup butterscotch chips

      I made these last week for my co workers & husband..The cost to make these are quite high so I was workers thought they were "ok"..husband took one bite and said "not him"..kind of disappointing given the cost. Personally I think they would be better without the mixed nuts..but thats just me.
