Failed Toffee Making = Toffee Cookies

Have you ever made homemade toffee? Well I recently attempted to make homemade toffee and it was semi unsuccessful the first round with my toffee separating from the butter creating an extra greasy layer around my toffee. However, the toffee itself was very good. So I managed to clean up most of the excess butter and chopped the toffee to be used in my favorite chocolate chip recipe, and so we have toffee chip cookies!

Toffee Chip Cookies, adapted from America's Test Kitchen

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup toffee
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
Sea salt for garnish

(1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

(2)Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the melted butter and sugars together with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

(3) Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla until combined.

(4) Slowly add the dry mixture just until combined. Fold in the toffee and chips until incorporated.

(5) Scoop your dough onto a prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt, as desired. Bake cookies approximately 12-15 minutes, depending on size, mine were about 1.5 tbsp of dough.

Great way to re-purpose a boo boo batch of homemade toffee or when you just have a craving for some  buttery chocolatety toffee!
