Chocolate Toffee Cookies

Chocolate and toffee- two words that should always go together right?  Well, I wish I could take credit for coming up with this yummy cookie combination, but I can’t. 🙂 My first encounter with a chocolate toffee cookie was at Atlanta Bread Company. I have been dreaming of making these cookies for some time.  Me, being the overachieving baker that I am decided I couldn’t just buy health bar toffee, noooo, I had to make my own toffee! I know, I like a baking or should I stay candy challenge every now and then:-)  Okay, so I made one batch of toffee and it was a dud (never trust a candy recipe that doesn’t call for a candy thermometer to gauge the candy’s readiness). The second batch of toffee was the winner. Doesn’t it look yummy?

Homemade Toffee

You can use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and add 1 cup of the toffee to the batter to get your very own chocolate toffee cookies!

Okay, now it’s time for you to finish this sentence for me,  “My favorite cookie is chocolate and ….”  In the meantime, have a virtual cookie on me! 🙂

    My favorite cookie is actually peanut butter. However, I really enjoy a good chocolate and pecan cookie! These chocolate and toffee cookies look scrumptous!

      Hi Renee! I learn something new about you everyday. I didn’t know you liked peanut butter cookies. I’m a fan of chocolate chip pecan too!

    I can nearly taste this already, it’s a shame I don’t have the ingredients at home is moment, else I would’ve prepared one (or two ;)) directly.
