Everyone loves a classic chocolate chip cookie – but this one has sweet Heath Pieces sprinkled throughout that really make these Heath Pieces cookies special. If you haven’t tried them yet – they are like a heath bar in an M&M type candy coated package. They’re the perfect addition to a classic chocolate chip cookie!
I love the crisp edges of these cookies, the chewy middles, and of course the sweet candy crunch from the Heath Pieces. So good!
This recipe makes about 2 dozen, but if you just want a few, the dough will freeze wonderfully. Simply form the cookie dough into a log shape and wrap in parchment paper. Seal in a freezer bag and freeze. This is a great way to control how many sweets your family is eating – especially if you are will-power challenged like I am! When you’re ready for more, slice the dough with a sharp knife and bake as directed below.
