Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9x13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, make sure your pan has a lip.
  • Arrange the cookies in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat then add in the sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 3 to 4 minutes, making sure the sugar has fully dissolved. Pour the butter mixture over the cookies making sure to fully coat.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until bubbly.
  • Immediately after removing from the oven, sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over the top of the bubbly cookies and let sit for a few minutes. Once the chocolate chips look shiny, use a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate out to cover the cookies.
  • Sprinkle the melted chocolate with chopped pecans and toffee bits. Place the pan in the refrigerator to chill for 1 to 2 hours. Remove from the fridge and cut into pieces and enjoy!

Notes

  • Because I traded in a salty cracker for a sweet cookie, I use salted butter in the recipe, but you could use unsalted if you'd like.
  • If you have a nut allergy, the pecans can be omitted altogether or replaced with another delicious topping like coconut flakes or m&m's.
  • Sea salt makes a delicious addition to this holiday treat!
  • Also, a drizzle of white chocolate is another sweet twist!
