You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t like a delicious chocolate chip cookie cooked from scratch. I don’t know about you, but I bake chocolate chip cookies so often that there are times when you simply need to add a little additional oomph to get them to the next level.

Brown butter toffee chocolate chip cookies are made using the following ingredients:

Toffee is the only ingredient that this toffee chocolate chip cookie recipe needs in addition to your standard chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • I cannot emphasize enough the importance of using high-quality butter in chocolate chip cookie recipes. We use Vermont Creamery butter, but any good butter would suffice. Spend the additional money on the high-quality packaging. It will be well worth the effort.
  • Brown Sugar + White Sugar: Using a combination of brown sugar and white sugar will give these toffee chocolate chip cookies a richer taste and the right sweet crunch.
  • Egg + Egg Yolk: Adding an additional egg yolk to your cookies will keep them very soft without being too cakey!
  • Sea salt is the most underappreciated substance in the world. These brown butter toffee chocolate chip cookies are elevated to gourmet status with a generous sprinkling of sea salt, which balances off the sweetness.
  • High-Quality Chocolate: There is a clear distinction between high-quality chocolate and store-bought chocolate. We like to use chocolate bars that have been severely chopped to create large pools of melty chocolate in the end dish.
  • If you have the time, make your own toffee, but these handmade biscuits may also be prepared using prefabricated or store-bought toffee.

What is brown butter, and how does it differ from regular butter?

Brown butter is just ordinary butter with the milk solids “toasted” in it. Brown butter gets its name from the fact that it becomes brown. Duh. It acquires a lovely nutty, toasted caramel flavor that makes you want to drink it right away.

No? It’s just me. It’s all right.

Brown butter is made in the following way:

You must try brown butter if you haven’t before. Browning butter adds a depth of flavor to a variety of dishes, including these brown butter toffee chocolate chip cookies.

  • STEP ONE: In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt your butter.
  • STEP TWO: As the butter melts, whisk it continually to ensure that it is uniformly heated. The butter will begin to froth as it melts. This is the sweet spot between boiling the butter (which is NOT what you want) and not getting the butter heated enough.
  • STEP THREE: COMPLETE THE FORMULA. Keep an eye out for the butter. DO NOT WALK AWAY, for example. It changes color from its regular yellow to a richer golden tone and finally to a lovely light brown. The fragrance will tell you it’s done: roasted, nutty, and heavenly. It may rapidly turn from light brown to burned, so remove it from the fire as soon as you notice the change.
  • STEP FOUR: Remove it from the fire and set it aside to cool before using in your recipe.

Ingredients

  • Lightly browned and cooled 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 room temperature egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp extract de vanille
  • a quarter teaspoon of salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 8 oz. chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped toffee

Instructions

  1. Brown the butter in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, stirring frequently until it foams and becomes a golden brown, releasing a nutty scent. Remove the butter from the heat and set it aside to cool fully before using.
  2. Whisk together the cooled brown butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a large mixing basin until well blended. Combine the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Fold in the flour, baking soda, and salt until well mixed. Fold in the chocolate and toffee bits with care.
  3. Chill the dough for at least one hour, preferably overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare two cookie sheets with parchment paper when ready to make the cookies.
