Chocolate Chip Coffee Toffee Cookies
I know I’ve mentioned before I’m not a big baker.
It’s not that I don’t like my sweets, because I do.
Mostly it’s because I’m “a little of this, a little of that” type of cook. You can’t do that with baking. Baking is precise. Which is why I had to test these cookies out several times before I got it right. I can’t say it was horrible having all those extra cookies to taste test though. Believe me, every single one of them got eaten, perfect or not.
What I really wanted was a cookie recipe that had enough of a hint of coffee to make a difference in the flavor, since these are meant to be coffee cookies. That took some experimenting. You could probably put even more coffee in than I did, depending on how strong of a taste you want. But you might need to compensate with a little extra of the dry ingredients. The cookie mixture is already pretty sticky.
Honestly, my pictures do not do these cookies justice. They look like your traditional chocolate chip cookie but bite into one and you will be surprised by the delicious mixture of chocolate, toffee and coffee!
Don’t forget your glass of milk!
