These cookies look pretty damn unremarkable. Never judge a cookie by it's appearance though, because these babies were delicious! I took them to work today and my coworkers LOVED them. My work will sometimes get the Hyvee Bakery to cater meetings and this cookie really reminded me of their Heath Toffee cookie. This is from The Cookie Bible (of course!) It's a Hersey's Recipe.
The actual name of the recipe is "Build Your Own Chocolate Cookie". I decided to add Heath Bits and White Chocolate Chips. The result was a success... for the most part.**

I was doing great with these, I had 4 batches down and was on my last dozen. I popped these in the oven, went to the computer and started working on a paper. 20something minutes later I remembered my cookies. I opened the oven to a bunch of smoke and charred cookies. It was quite sad. Damn School... always gettin in the way!
