Pistachio & Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

These perfectly chewy milk chocolate chip cookies are full of chopped pistachios and toffee. Sweet, nutty, and chewy all in one.

Pistachio & Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Once you’ve found the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, what do you next? Make variations of course! Even since I perfected my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies I have been experimenting with different mix-ins. This latest creation was inspired by Trader Joe’s dark chocolate roasted pistachio toffee. I’ve already made two other recipes in the likeness of this treat, mini pistachio cupcakes and dark chocolate pistachio saltine cracker toffee, but now it was time for some cookies and instead of dark chocolate I used milk chocolate.

Almond Toffee Applesauce Bread

One year ago today, I posted about meeting my nephew Luke for the first time and just yesterday I saw a video of him walking (more like running)! I wish I could witness it in person but unfortunately am not sure when I will be able to visit next, especially with all the weddings I am in this summer/fall, trying to graduate and then they are moving to southern California in August! Which means my job searches just got expanded to include the west coast as well, haha. In the meantime I thrive through Facebook and Dropbox photos and videos.

…and baked goods. When it comes to sweet breads, I love making mini loafs. They are cute, fun and you just want to eat them right up! Just like Luke but I digress. These mini applesauce loaves also have toffee bits and almond slices mixed in for a little bit of crunch and extra sweetness.

Gingerbread Dip

Welcome to day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. Today’s theme for Christmas Week is “Gingerbread Surprise”. Make sure you visit all the participating bloggers today to see what special dish they whipped up for you.

Last year I discovered my love for chocolate and gingerbreadtogether, and I had originally planned on another chocolate and gingerbread recipe for today but once I found a recipe for gingerbread cookie dough dip those plans flew right out the window. I changed it up a little bit by adding my favorite dip ingredient, Greek yogurt, and reduced the butter which together changed the consistency to be creamier than your average cookie dough dip, so I dubbed this just plain ol’ Gingerbread Dip. It’s amazing and a tiny bit better for you too. Just eat it with apples instead of crackers if you need to keep your conscience clear.

As I write this post, it just now occurred to me that I could’ve fulfilled my chocolate and gingerbread fantasy with this dip by using miniature chocolate chips instead of toffee bits. Darn, guess I have to make another batch O:-).

Toffee Apple Dip

This dip is amazing. I made it for yet another trip to Art Jam’N and served it with green apple slices and gingersnap cookies. It ended up being dinner, with a side of hummus and pita chips – totally rounded out meal, am I right?

Make it. And dare you to try and share.

In other news, for those of you who wished me good health for getting over my cold it’s working! Or rather I’m working? Yea I am back to the grind at the ol’ lab. So much to do before I leave for the holidays, ah!!! Oh and don’t forget to enter for some really awesome jewelry!
