"Quite nice. I enjoyed that it was chewy but crisp when you bit into it. I didn't have the required chips on hand. I used: Ghirardelli bittersweet baking chips (larger sized), dark chocolate morsels, mini chocolate chips and left over milk chocolate chips along with the toffee and nuts. Good over-all flavor, the base dough would be a good starter for other cookies."

"After I got started on these cookies, I realized that I didn't have toffee bits or white chocolate chips, so I used 2 cups of chocolate chips and about 1/2 cup each of butterscotch and peanut butter chips. Yum!"

"We make these ALL of the time. They are so amazing. We often leave out the nuts for fussy guests and you don't miss a thing."

"Nice and chewy. They turned out exactly like the picture. Make sure you use a sturdy spoon to stir in all the chips."
