These are tasty little gems. I started making them and then realized I was out of brown sugar. I just doubled on the white but know the brown sugar would really add to the flavour. I used Skor toffee bits and they worked fine. I would really suggest using parchment paper as the toffee bits melt and stick to the pan. They do come off easily with hot water but it slowed me down a bit. I have these tucked away in the freezer for my Christmas tray -- will they last? Hmm, that is the question! Thanks for a nice and different recipe.

Wow - fantastic! They are great cookies, very rich tasting and surprisingly soft, even the next day. I used skor chippets which are tiny, so I think a half a cup would have been fine. Next time I'm going to increase the malted milk balls, I didn't have quite a cup's worth. I chopped them each into 4-6 pieces which seemed to work fine (my ulu was perfect for this). I used my silpat sheet which was great, because some of the toffee bled out and would have been a bugger-bear to clean from a pan. I did put a dozen balls in the freezer, and am going to see how they cook from there next, that way I can always have some ready. Coffee B, I don't know how to thank you, these will definitely be made often in our house. Thanks!! ***********Update 7-27-12 ***** I froze 12 of the raw cookie balls. I took them out last night, let them thaw for a while and then baked. Came out fantastic! Great to have on hand for the unexpected guest.

This is my favorite cookie! Thank you for posting, I have had the recipe card for many years, and my little one chewed it up so I thought I had lost the recipe. Thanks!
