Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies-the brown butter makes these cookies extra special. Plus, they have all of my favorite ingredients: toffee, chocolate chunks, and a sprinkling of sea salt. These cookies are a MUST make!
At my last check-up, my midwife told me I needed to gain a little weight. Nothing serious to worry about, I am just a little small for being 32 weeks pregnant. I am incorporating more healthy fats and calories into my diet…and more cookies. I am pretty sure gaining weight involves cookies, at least that is what I am telling myself:) I went home from my appointment and baked Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies and enjoyed one for me and one for the baby…and maybe a few extras:)
I can’t even begin to describe how good these cookies are. They are almost too good to be true. The brown butter takes these cookies to a whole new level. If you haven’t baked with brown butter, you are missing out! I love the deep, nutty flavor it adds to the cookie. And it isn’t hard to brown butter, you just have to watch it closely and have a little patience.
The cookies are chewy on the inside and crisp around the edges. And just when you think the cookies couldn’t get any better, they do! I add in chunks of chopped up Heath candy bars. The toffee flavor goes perfectly with the brown butter. Oh, and I don’t stop there, I finish the cookies with a touch of sea salt.
Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies pretty much perfect! I love everything about them! I could eat a big stack every day…and I just might until this baby is born! And FYI-these cookies freeze well. I put a few in our freezer to save for a rainy day, but I couldn’t stay away. I’ve already gotten into my “secret” cookie stash in the freezer. Oops! 🙂
