Growing up I loved Heath bars.

Heath Blizzard from Dairy QueenOne summer I think I slurped down my weight in Heath Bar Blizzards, horrible dairy intolerance reactions and all. It was worth it.

But since I don’t plan to raid Dairy Queen for a Heath Bar Blizzard anytime soon, and because I love cookie dough, I came up with today’s recipe which satisfied my toffee cravings.  I think it will do the same for you.   C’mon, cookie dough, chocolate and toffee. What’s not to love?

No Bake Toffee & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Ingredients:

2/3 c cashews (unsalted, and raw if possible)

1/3 c dry oats

3 tbsp agave or maple syrup (or combination)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 c chocolate chips

1/4 c toffee bits

Yields: approximately 16-18 bites

Directions:

First add cashews and oats to Vita-Mix or food processor and grind into a fine powder.  Then, add the agave and vanilla extract and blend again.  Finally, add the chocolate chips and toffee bits and either stir in by hand or barely blend/pulse until incorporated.  Retain some texture.

Remove the dough and form into cookie bites.  If dough is soft or hard to work with, refrigerate/freeze for 20 minutes prior to forming into bites.

Optional Ideas:

After the bites are formed, drizzle them with dark or white chocolate by melting 1/4 c dark/white chocolate.  With a spoon, drizzle chocolate over the top of the bites (see here for an example) Or, dip each bite entirely into chocolate.

Dust finished bites with cocoa or carob powder.

Add dried coconut flakes to each ball by rolling them in coconut at the end, or adding 1/4 c dried coconut to the dough.  Increase agave/maple slightly if dough is too dry.

Store the dough bites in refrigerator or freezer.

Dough. You will know when your dough is the right consistency because it just looks like it’s going to stick together without being too wet or too crumbly.

The little crunchy toffee bits combined with the dark chocolate chips are perfect in the chewy, raw, doughy bites.

From my last post about Sandwiches &  ‘Shrooms, as predicted mushrooms are a love ’em or hate ’em food.  But I was surprised to hear how many of you really love your shrooms!

And glad you liked my creative twist on “bread” sandwichesGotta think outside of the gluten box.

Questions:

1. Best thing you ate or did over the weekend?

These Toffee Cookie Dough Bites rank right up there but I got together with a friend and it was great.  Stay tuned.

2. Do you like Heath Bars or Toffee?

Yes, clearly!

3. Favorite mainstream candy bar?

If you rattle off some favorites, I can put them into dessert recipes.  Not necessarily just into raw dough bites, but into other cooked recipes like brownies or cookies, too.  I am thinking Butterfingers, Snickers, Mounds Bars, Laffy Taffy even.  What should I try next?
