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.
Sept. 6th, 2008:These are awesome! I used dark brown sugar just because I have a lot of it I accidently bought. I used Heath English Toffee Bits. Like Laffer suggested, I used parchment paper and I didn't even need a spatula to get them off! I could pick them up right off the parchment paper with my hands. I made them bigger than the recipe says to also...I like my cookies big. :) Thanks for posting a winner! I can't wait to give this recipe to my sister and mom. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag. Oct. 25th, 2008: UPDATE: I made a couple batches of these and gave some away. I gave some to a friend of my hubby's and she called me and asked for the recipe a few days later. She's made them numerous times since then and she says EVERYONE asks her for the recipe. These are amazing cookies that it seems like everyone loves. These are definetly keepers.
