These toffee chocolate chip cookies are a delicious chocolate chip cookie dressed up with toffee bits. You will love the combination.
I love the combination of toffee and chocolate, especially when it’s warm and gooey. One of my standard kitchen ingredients is a bag of the Toffee Bits. They are the perfect way to dress up a chocolate chip cookie. Give these toffee chocolate chip cookies a try and you may never go back to plain chocolate chip cookies.
In addition to the toffee, these cookies have a fine dusting of sugar. The melted sugar gives it a delicious caramelized flavor while sill allowing for a soft cookie.
How to make Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Mix up your cookie dough in your stand mixer using the paddle attachment. Add the toffee bits in with the chocolate chips.
- The dough is formed into a ball, about golf ball size.
- Dip the bottom of a drinking glass into sugar and flatten the cookie to about 1/4 inch thickness. The addition of the sugar gives the cookie a nice glittery appearance plus a little extra sugar never hurt anyone.
- This recipe uses brown sugar which gives the cookie a bit of a “deeper” flavor than just using white sugar or a combination of white/brown sugar.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes and then move to a cooling rack.
