Today was a day to bake cookies. It’s been a while since I’ve baked treats with my daughter, so we decided to bake chocolate chip cookies. To spruce them up, I decided to combine Nestle Original Dark chocolate chips with Heath toffee pieces. They are delicious!!!
Dark Chocolate & Toffee Chip Cookies:
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- approx 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- approx 1 cup toffee pieces
(I’m not exact with my chocolate chips—I sprinkle in a portion of the bag until the cookies look nice and packed with delicious bits of chocolate! )
Preheat oven to 375
Combine ingredients. I always melt my butter in the microwave before combining–makes it easier for my little one to help with stirring. Drop by large tablespoon-fulls or use a cookie scoop like I do, it makes it so easy and the cookies come out nice and round most of the time.
Bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment for 11 minutes. My oven has a hot spot, so I would put the cookie sheet in for 5 1/2 minutes and then flip the sheet for another 5 1/2 (it’s not necessary unless your oven is crazy like mine!)
Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. They will look mushy while hot, but trust me, after they cool for five minutes on cookie sheet and 10 on a wire cooling rack, they will be absolute perfection.
