The beauty of this cookie recipe is that you can add whatever you want to it. Candy, different flavors of chocolate chips, toffee, whatever you want. For this batch I added chopped Kit Kat bars and white chocolate chips. I like the balance between the white chocolate and the Kit Kats. If I’d added milk or semi-sweet chocolate, I think the Kit Kat would have gotten lost. You can add your favorites!
