Servings: Makes 4 1/2 dozen
- 1 cup unsalted butter , softened
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 5 bars (1.4 ounces each) English toffee candy , chopped
- 1 package (10 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks
- 1 package (10 ounces) white chocolate chunks

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add both sugars, beating well. Add eggs and vanilla, then beat well.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stirring well. Add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in toffee candy, both chocolate chunks and both nuts.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool slightly on baking sheets; remove wire racks to cool completely.
