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.
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.
Milk Chocolate Toffee Butter Cookies
These cookies are so good. The bits of milk chocolate toffee add a nice crunch.
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate toffee bits
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Combine sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in milk chocolate toffee bits.
- Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to 1 1/2-inch circles using the bottom of a glass.
- Bake 10-11 minutes or until edges are just lightly browned. Sprinkle with sugar while warm. Cool completely.

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:
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.
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?
