Milk Chocolate is the mellow, velvety, smooth chocolate! YUM!
While milk chocolate and dark chocolate both use cocoa liquor, cocoa butter and sugar, milk chocolate also uses milk powder, to give its creamier taste, texture, and lighter color. No bitterness, just pure chocolate heaven and it goes great with toffee!

These cookies are great to bake, when you don't want to wait for the butter or eggs to come to room temperature and this recipe makes 18 large cookies using about 3 tablespoons of cookie dough per cookie.
No chilling, unless you want. Chilling will always make your cookies thicker though and you may have to bake a few more minutes. If you are chilling, you should go ahead an scoop your dough balls before they go in the fridge or freezer. Because if you don't, it's super hard to scoop because the dough is so firm, unless you want dough to start to come to room temperature. I think it's just easier to do it all in one shot in the beginning and minimize extra work.
BTW, you can make them smaller, depending what you baking them for and size you like. Just reduce the baking time a few minutes in that case.
Toffee and milk chocolate together is like a dream come true. Toffee is a very popular add-in and so are pecans for that matter, especially around the holidays. But of course, we don't rule them out for just the holidays! Cravings work just as well! Shall we party?
