Peanut Butter Chocolate Toffee Chewies - No Bake!

In Calgary yesterday on top of 35 degree heat, we actually had a humidity warning (?!).  In the 15 years I've lived here, I don't think that has ever occurred before!  We are completely unacclimatized for such conditions, and drenched in sweat from simply standing still!  My daughter resorted to dunking her head in a bucket of water; which I pointed out to her the dog had been drinking out of all day -  hahaha. - gross!  And my 4 year old boy, who is growing out his gorgeous ginger locks, had a mass of voluminous mass of curly hair, totally hilarious for his small stature.

You'll find these Peanut Butter Chocolate Toffee Chewies perfect for the hot summer days that are finally upon us, and cure your cookie craving without the heat of the oven!  Hooray! I put mine in fridge to set, as it was so hot and humid!   I found they are super chewy straight outta the fridge, however when transferred to cookie jar, at room temperature, they were much easier to consume!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Toffee Chewies
Recipe adapted from: Mom on Timeout

1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups toffee bits (I used a whole 200g bag of SKOR toffee bits)

In a large saucepan or medium pot over medium - high heat, combine sugar and corn syrup.  Stir occasionally over heat, until mixture reaches a full boil. Remove from heat, and add in chocolate chips and peanut butter stir until melted and fully combined.  Next add in oats and coconut, and finally, fold in toffee bits.  Drop by the (Table)spoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet, and let set for 20-30 minutes. Store in airtight container, if you like a super chew, store them in the fridge, or for slight chew keep at room temperature.
