Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies 
Is there anything tastier than a fresh chocolate chip cookie, still warm from the oven?  The chocolate a bit gooey and the edges all buttery and crisp?  Probably not . . .  unless  . . . 
You make that same cookie using browned butter, real chunks of dark chocolate and add some chew toffee bits. Now you are talking about the “ultimate” chocolate chip cookie!  This recipe I am sharing with you today is nothing short of amazing!
Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies 
The cookies themselves have a lovely nuttiness from the use of browned butter. The bitter quality of the dark chocolate adds a hint of richness which goes very well against the sweetness of the creamy toffees!  Altogether such a beautiful combination.
I adapted this delicious recipe from one which I found on a blog called Broma.  They sounded and looked incredibly appealing.  A chocolate chip cookie with a totally adult spin.

You would be hard pressed to find a human being that does not/would not enjoy these cookies. They are everything a good chocolate chip cookie should be.  Crispy edges. Chewy  middles.  Plenty of chocolate.  A nutty edginess and depth of flavor from the use of browned butter.
These are equally at home with a hot cup of java as they are with an ice cold glass of milk.  They are simple to make. They store well for up to 3 days, in an airtight container and also freeze well.  
Chocolate chip cookies on steroids, with additional oomph. Nobody will be complaining.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE BROWN BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHUNK TOFFEE COOKIES
Pretty simple storecupboard ingredients, baking cupboard ingredients.  Its simple really.
  • 3/4 cup (172g) butter, lightly browned and cooled (see notes)
  • 1 cup (200g) soft light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup (63g) granulated white sugar
  • 1 large free range egg, plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 TBS pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 3/4 cup (220g) plain all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
  • 1 1/4 cups (227g) dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup (90g) chewy toffees, cut into bits

Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies 
I just use regular salted butter when I bake unless I know it is going to make a huge difference. Generally speaking I will cut back on the salt required for the recipe. This time I cut it back to 1/2 tsp. If you are using unsalted butter, increase the salt in the recipe to 1 tsp.
I used dark chocolate chunks. You can use a dark chocolate bar cut into chunks if you wish.  Use a good quality chocolate containing at least 70% cocoa butter.  Good quality chocolate speaks for itself.
For the toffee I used Werther’s soft toffee’s cut into bits.  They worked beautifully. I love the chewy blow out bits that baked on the baking sheet. They came out like candy. Yummy!

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350*F/180*C/gas mark 4. Line several baking sheets with baking paper.



Scoop out the cookie dough using a cookie scoop (1 ounce size) and place the balls 2-inches apart on the baking sheets.



Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until the edges and bottoms are golden brown and the centers are still a bit gooey. Leave to cool on the pan for a few minutes before scooping off to a wire rack to cool completely.



Store in an airtight container.  These also freeze well.

HOW TO MAKE BROWN BUTTER
This technique will come in handy for all sorts. There is nothing so tasty as that nutty flavor of brown butter.  Do take it off as soon as it starts to turn brown so that it doesn’t burn.
To make browned butter, place the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the butter begins to foam and turns golden brown. It will smell lovely and nutty. Take off the heat immediately and set aside to cool to room temperature before using.

Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies

I am a real Cookie Monster.  I haven’t really ever met a cookie I didn’t love and these lovely Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Toffee Cookies were no exception.  With their chewy middles and crisp buttery edges, they pleased on all levels.
The dark chocolate chunks and toffee bits balanced each other out very well and to be honest, how could anything baked with browned butter ever taste bad!
Here are a few other cookie recipes that you might also enjoy!

Quarter Cup Cookies

QUARTER CUP COOKIES – An old recipe downsized. The old recipe  was called Ten Cup Cookies.  They were given that name because they were composed with 10 (1 cup in size) ingredients. Butter, creamy peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, flour, chocolate chips, quick cooking oats, shredded sweetened coconut, chopped pecans and raisins.  Ten simple ingredients.  Ingredients most of us have on hand most of the time. This newer version requires only 1/4 cup of each ingredient and makes 13 beautiful, delicious crispy edged cookies.



Lemon Curd Cookies



LEMON CURD COOKIES - Looking for a special cookie to serve for a special get-together or just to enjoy with a lovely cup of tea?  Love the flavor of lemon?  Look no further. These are the cookies for you! These lush and buttery shortbread cookies are flavored through and through with lemon from the inside out. Crispy edged and dimpled with lemon curd centers, they are real lemon winners!  A tart lemon glaze finishes them off.
