No mixer or chilling needed to make these soft and chewy chocolate cookies. The flavorful toffee bits give these cookies a little crunch and the secret ingredient make them perfect!
I think this December I have baked the most cookies. I bake cookies year round and have a handful of favorite recipes I make over and over in my kitchen, but this holiday season I was on the quest for a new cookie recipe to make for our Christmas dessert table. I don’t do cakes or any fancy desserts. Keeping it simple and the stress level to minimum. Who needs to panic over a sophisticated desserts on Christmas eve? Not this girl, that’s for sure!
Well, these cookies are easy as 1,2,3. Make the cookie dough, scoop and bake. It’s that easy! And the results? Oh my! Extra chewy, soft, rich chocolate cookies with a few crunchy pieces in each cookie.
To make these cookies perfect you must follow the recipe directions. There are a few things you have to remember but once you have all the ingredients on hand and the oven hot, you should be all good.
The recipe starts by melting butter and semi-sweet chocolate over low heat. Once the mixture is smooth, you have to stir in the sugars. The recipe for these toffee crunch chocolate cookies calls for both white and brown sugar. I LOVE adding dark brown sugar to these cookies. It not only helps the chewy factor but also enhances the toffee flavor! After you add the sugars you have to let the mixture cool down slightly before stirring in the eggs. If you add the eggs and the dry ingredients while the chocolate mixture is still hot, the cookies will spread into the oven making a huge mess.
In addition to the butter and sugars, you’ll also need eggs, all-purpose flour, chocolate chips, toffee bits and a secret ingredient. It won’t be secret anymore, of course, once I tell you. Crumbled brownie brittle. It not only brings a little more toffee flavor but help with the crunch factor as well.
Have you tried Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle? Ah-dictive!!!!
The first time I tried brownie brittle was alms 6 months ago at a food blogger’s conference in Miami. I kept snacking on it the entire flight back home. Needless to say I didn’t tell my family about the extra bag I had in my language. Sometimes I’m selfish like that!
Shortly after my trip to Miami, I noticed Brownie Brittle at my local grocery store and that was the beginning of my addition. I’m sure you can find it at a store near you. I now see them in all stores! Brownie brittle comes in 4 flavors – chocolate chip, salted caramel, mint chocolate chips and of course toffee crunch!
To make these cookies you’ll need 2.5 oz crumbled toffee crunch brownie brittle – that’s half of the bag. You can munch on the other half while the cookies are in the oven. You know, to make the time fly faster!
