Oatmeal Toffee Chipper Cookie Recipe

oatmeal toffee chipper cookies

Looking for an easy cookie recipe that tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen for hours? One of my favorite tricks is buying Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix and adding in other ingredients to make them even better.

I’ve never tried the other cookie mixes, but I’m sure they’re great as well. I really like the consistency of the oatmeal cookies because they’re not super chunky. They’re more of a ground up oatmeal texture. 

You just follow the directions on the bag, but add in your own mix ins to make them extra tasty. I like to add Heath/Toffee bits & mini chocolate chips. I use mini chocolate chips because they’re about the same size as the Heath Bits, giving the cooking a balanced texture. 

I love them because they’re a little salty, sweet, chewy & a total crowd pleaser!

Lucky for you, the recipe I’m bringing you has absolutely zero nutritional value. Does that mean it also zaps calories out too? Just saying…
