Once November hits I feel like everything I bake needs cinnamon as a main ingredient. Something about it feels so cozy to me and gets my excitement for the holidays charged up. One of my favorite cinnamon recipes are Snickerdoodles, which are a holiday staple, but today I am sharing a way you can take the classic recipe to the next level by adding a little white chocolate and toffee. These are not your momma’s Snickerdoodles, unless your mom makes super awesome elevated Snickerdoodles that are kind of mind-blowing, then they ARE your mom’s Snickerdoodles. Here is how you make them:
White-Chocolate Dipped Snickerdoodles with Toffee
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
White Chocolate Dip
- 16 oz. White Melting Chocolate
- Toffee bits
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars at high speed. Add egg, vanilla, and beat until smooth. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Pour dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix well. Preheat oven to 300° while you let dough rest 30-60 minutes in fridge. In a small bowl combine topping. Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press onto greased cookie sheet. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely.
While cookies are cooling, melt chocolate according to package directions. Dip cookies halfway into chocolate and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle immediately with toffee bits.
Can you smell the cinnamon goodness through your screen? They are SO delicious. The white chocolate adds the perfect sweet creaminess and the toffee adds just the right amount of crunch. Trust me, these babies are going to be at the front of your recipe box all winter long.
