glazed toffee bon bons...



Cookies:
1 cup butter; room temp
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs; room temp
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 bars (1.4 oz) chocolate covered toffee (Skor candy bars); crushed

Glaze:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2-3 Tbsp milk
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup white chocolate chips

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Beat first four cookie ingredients together on med speed until light and fluffy. On low speed mix in dry ingredients. Pour in candy bar pieces; reserving 1/3 for topping cookies. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, one inch apart.
Bake 10-14 min (check after 10) or until edges just start to brown. Immediatetly remove to a cooling rack.

For the glaze:
In a saucepan heat butter, brown sugar and milk over med-low heat; stirring frequently, until mixture just comes to a boil and sugar is dissolved. Stir in powdered sugar; beat with a wire whisk, if necessary, to remove lumps. Immediately dip tops of cookies in the glaze (cookies do not need to be completely cooled, just firm and set). Place back on rack and let stand about 10 min until glaze is set. (If glaze starts to thicken or set in pan just reheat over med-low heat and stir with a whisk.)
Place milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips in separate bowls and heat 15-30 seconds in microwave to melt, stir frequently. Place melted chocolate in plastic bags and snip a little bit off of the corner (or use a spoon) and drizzle over cookies. Top with remaining candy pieces.

There isn't much to say about these cookies except that the effort is totally worth it...they are AMAZING!!
