soft chocolate chocolate chip and toffee pudding cookies

The blog community is this crazy group of people who come from all different parts of the globe but, come together over a common interest.  Friendships are made, secrets revealed, lessons taught, and laughter shared all via a keyboard, camera, and screen.   I have been a lurker for over a year now.  I have sat on the play ground and watched the cool kids play together.  I never asked to play but, I did admire them with such envy.  Last month I saw a post about the secret recipe club.  I loved the concept.  You get assigned a blog and then you get to make anything you want from their blog.  This was such a fit for me.  I got to read a new blog and make something that I was interested in and fit my family.  Many of the groups don't fit my needs and I can't waste food.  I reached out to the hostess and with in a few minutes I had a friendly greeting and a play date with the cool kids.  I like being cool.  I was assigned group B which will post next week but, one of the hostesses reached out to the group to help support an orphaned blog in group A.  This was my chance to be a part of the community.  A community that reaches out and helps when needed.  The help is given no questions asked to people you have never met face to face.  I think that is rad.  I think kindness is rad.  Almost as rad as these soft chocolate milk chocolate chip and toffee cookies adapted from connor's cooking.  The call went out to the group Tuesday afternoon.  I quickly got sucked into connor's cooking blog who is written by a mom who enjoys baking and cooking for friends and family.  These are my kind of recipes.  They are ones my family would love.  From oreo turtle brownies, to cinnamon bear popcorn, to chocolate dipped pretzels and hot chocolate cupcakes.  When I saw these soft chocolate chip cookies I was fixated.  I am not sure if it was the picture of the golden soft puffy cookies or her adorable 2 week old babe but, I was sold.  I came down to the kitchen to find out I was out of vanilla pudding and only had chocolate.  We love pudding cookies so, I followed the recipes with the exception of subbing chocolate pudding for the vanilla and instead of 2 cups of semi sweet chips I subbed 1 cup milk chocolate and 1 cup heath toffee bits.  They came out so soft and packed with bits of sweet toffee and chips.  This is a great recipe which can be customized so many ways.  It is adaptable just like this group of food bloggers that I am very excited to join.

These sound like delicious cookies. It was fun coming together and cooking from Connor's Cooking. I hope that you'll check out the Nutella Crêpes which I made from her blog.
