Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies

by Alli

Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies are delicious and easy to make! 

I recently participated in the 5th annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap and I have to say it was a blast! This was my very first time participating and it won’t be my last. Thanks to Dixie Crystals, Land O’ Lakes and OXO for sponsoring this post. 

I baked three dozen Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies and sent a dozen to three different bloggers – Secret Santa style. In return, I received 3 dozen cookies – one dozen from three different bloggers.

Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies

I’ve taken part in virtual cookie swaps before, but I have to admit that looking at the cookies online is just not the same as actually getting cookies in the mail from all across the country.

These cookies are so good. The bits of milk chocolate toffee add a nice crunch.

Yield: 32 cookies

Two dozen cookies (from two different bloggers) arrived at my house the same day. The third dozen arrived the next day. I had a house full of guests over the weekend, so I set up a cookie bar for dessert.

Here are the cookies I received:

Cookie Swap

The best part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is that all participants made a donation to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This is a national non-profit organization committed to funding new therapies used in the fight against pediatric cancer.

Cancer claims the lives of more children in the US than any other disease. By participating in this cookie swap, I not only contributed to the food blogger community but also supported a great cause.

Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies

Our sponsors (Land O’Lakes, Dixie Crystals Sugar & OXO) match our donation to COOKIES FOR KIDS’ CANCER, dollar for dollar (up to $3000).  

Not only did they match our donation, but I received a stack of coupons from Land O’Lakes, a silicone baking mat from Dixie Crystal and a set of measuring cups from OXO.

I have to say that this was the best cookie swap program I’ve ever participated in and can’t wait until next year.  Don’t forget to try my Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies.  They’re a family favorite! What’s your favorite holiday cookie?

I’ve made butter cookies quite a few times, which are great plain. I love the idea of adding in the chocolate toffee bits too. I may have to make a batch of these for my neighbors.

These look so delicious. I love to bake a variety of cookies around the holidays so I always have goodies around for anyone that stops by.

Oh men, I wish I could receive a dozen of these cookies, or maybe three dozens. How fun to do this activity and for such a worthy cause, too. That is great that Land O’ Lakes was willing to match such a high amount of $$$.
