Day 3 Christmas Goodie Countdown: Almond Roca COOKIES!

YUM! Does it get any better, take my favorite candy and turn it into a cookie!

Almond Roca Cookies

Almond Roca Cookies
2½ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 cup butter, room temp
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 package toffee bits
1 cup coarsely ground almonds
4 ounces milk chocolate
½ tablespoon olive oil

Preheat oven to 300. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend sugars together on medium speed, add butter to form a grainy batter. Add eggs and vanilla and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. At low speed, slowly add the flour mixture and the toffee bits. Mix just until just blended. Place ground nuts in a small bowl. Using hands, roll balls of dough into 1 to 1½ inch balls, then roll in the ground nuts. Bake in oven for about 20-25 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
Melt the chocolate along with the vegetable oil in microwave. Drizzle this over the cooled cookies. Place in fridge until chocolate is firmly set.

Enjoy and have a Blessed Weekend!
