Heath Bar Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made this cookie from my brain. 

Okay, okay, I used an old recipe and tweaked the ingredients, but hey. I got creative in the kitchen. So to me, it counts. 

I fell so much in love with the Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies, and everyone else fell so much in love with them, that I knew I had to rinse and repeat. I've fallen in love with the wonder that is the Heath Bar over the past couple of years and knew I needed to somehow incorporate this nugget of gold into my baking. 

I took the oreo recipe, tweaked to all things chocolate and heath, and oh the result. OH the result. After I made them, Kelsey ate about four and requested for me to get them out of the house. When I took them to work, they left the container in similar fashion to the Oreo cookies. Two by two by two....

My sweet coworker has been asking for this recipe since I made them, so Shelby - this one's for you! :)

The Heath Bar Chocolate Chip Cookie

What You'll Need
1 box chocolate cake mix
8 tbsp butter, melted
1 egg
4 oz cream cheese, softened
 tsp vanilla extract
3/4c of Heath Toffee Bits**
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

**I know there are Heath bits that have both chocolate AND toffee crumbles in the same bag, but my grocery store only had the pure toffee bits (no chocolate). I actually think it worked out well since we add chocolate chips into a chocolate cake base. But, if your grocery store only has the combo morsels, just scale back on the chocolate chips!
What You'll Do
Throw the cake mix, melted butter, egg, and vanilla into a bowl and mix (I used an electric mixer)
Add in softened cream cheese
Using a spatula, fold in the bits and chocolate chips  
Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes
Line a pan with parchment paper, roll dough into balls and place on the pan
Bake at 350 for 10-11 minutes (do not over bake them! they will not look completely done, but will continue to cook at "set" on the pan)
Voila! As simple as that! And in case you needed one more reason to love them, unlike the Heath bars, the toffee doesn't get stuck in your teeth! Wins all around. 
The chocolate lover in your life will adore these. 
Happy Sweet Tooth Wednesday!
Until next time,
