English toffee is one of those homemade candies that almost everyone loves. Commercial versions (which are actually pretty good) are also available, as well as candy-shop versions which range from great to okay. If there’s English toffee in the house, these Shortcut English Toffee Drops are the perfect way to use it up. In fact, it’s worth it to make English Toffee just for these cookies. They are chewy and buttery, and have bits of melted toffee, chocolate, and nuts – scrumptious!
Even if everyone is extra busy, there’s no need to go without; the dough for these cookies can be mixed in a matter of minutes, since it starts with Basic Master Mix and only a few additional ingredients need to be added. Don’t be tempted to add the toffee baking bits that are sold in the baking aisle of the grocery store – they are nothing like the real candy, and your cookies will not be even remotely the same.
The Hancock tasters all agreed that these cookies are addicting and definitely hazardous to the waistline!
