These were originally made with margarine. Though I grew up on Imperial, I have not bought margarine for thirty years. I use butter.
In the grocery store, they have Heath toffee bits, which were good in these cookies. At Cash and Carry, I bought a bag of Heath bits that are made of the entire Heath bar, including the chocolate. They made these cookies even chocolatier, which I like. The original called for vanilla pudding rather than the malted milk powder which made them less malty. Shari liked the texture better that way.
