Crispy on the outside and chewy inside, these toffee chocolate chip cookies are the best!
Who wouldn’t love freshly baked cookies that are crispy on the outside and chewy inside? These toffee chocolate chip cookies are the best! The deep golden crust on the cookies is assuring the texture that everyone is looking for when it comes to chocolate chip cookies.
I bake chocolate chip cookies on the regular bases since my family is literally addicted to them. Although I love every kind of chocolate chip cookie recipes under the moon, these toffee chocolate chip surprised me more than I expected. Not only the crisp chewy texture that I always long for chocolate chip cookies, the flavor of cookies are fantastic. There are a few details I need to share how these toffee chocolate chip cookies are made differently. You can also check out my cooking video for more details.
Firstly, I used dark brown sugar and I used a lot more than white sugar. That brings the delectable toffee flavor into these cookies. They also stay fresh longer due to the amount of molasses in the dark brown sugar.
Secondly, some chocolate chip cookies are loaded with big chunks of chocolate, which sometimes can be over powering. Unlikely, these cookies are made with mini chocolate chips. I love how the little morsels of chocolate chips are distributed evenly in every cookie.
Lastly, I let them chill in the fridge for two days. If you don’t have the time to wait, chilling for just one hour still yields better texture than no chilling at all. When you chill, the moisture of the eggs incorporates withe flour and creates the crisp texture on the outside. I highly recommend the chilling, but no longer than two days, though.
I like big sized cookies when it comes to chocolate chip cookies. Try making your your toffee chocolate chip cookies big. A 1/4 cup amount per each cookie is a good size. (I used 1/4 cup cookie scoop). They will surely brings a smile to people.
