Toffee Malted Cookies

I love cookies.  A lot.  Is there anything better than a plate full of cookies?  I think not.

This cookie recipe from Taste of Home is one of my absolute favorites.  It has great textures with the bits of crushed Whoppers and toffee pieces.  The pudding mix makes them nice and chewy.  Making these cookies is always a good idea.
