These cookies seriously rock!
They are probably one of my all-time favorite cookies (next to chocolate chip of course).
They are crispy and chewy and oh sooo yummy! The toffee bits melt and spread throughout the cookie making them just insanely good.
My friend Heather gave me this recipe. She got it from her brother’s mother-in-law, who happens to be known as the queen of cookie making. You will be in love with these cookies, I promise!
Just make sure you use margarine . . . . it is a must! Being the butter-loving girl that I am, I tried making these with butter one time they were an epic fail. They spread way too much, were totally flat and looked awful. You must use margarine, that is the key here folks. One more thing, this recipe makes A LOT of cookies! Unless I need a lot of cookies, I usually just half the recipe and even after all the dough I eat, I still get about 3 1/2 dozen cookies. If you do make the whole batch, make sure you have a large mixing bowl, because your mixer will be really full.
P.S. If you are a cookie dough lover like me, I’m just warning you that this dough is highly addictive, as are the cookies!
- 2 cups margarine (don't use butter!)
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 4 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 4 cups flour
- 4 cups oatmeal
- 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 (10-oz) package Heath or Skor toffee bits
Cream margarine, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Add baking soda, baking powder and flour, blend well.
Stir in oatmeal, Rice Krispies and toffee chips. Mix well.
Roll into balls using a cookie scoop and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from oven and tap cookie sheet firmly on the counter to flatten the cookies.
I love these best with Skor toffee bits but they stopped selling them in grocery stores years ago. I'm lucky enough to have a "connection" and my friend's husband ordered them through one of their food suppliers. You can buy them online here , they are a little pricey, but so worth it. If you keep them store in your freezer, they will stay fresh for a really long time. I have used the Heath toffee bits, and they cookies are still delicious, I just prefer the Skor bits.
