Cookies filled with extra dark chocolate chips and buttery toffee get a boost from fleur de sel.
A bold shot of espresso counteracts sweet toffee bits in these speckled drop cookies.
Two nostalgic classics that play better together: a sweet, creamy malted milk base and the salty-nutty crunch of toffee.
This is a slight variation on most toffee recipes, which usually only hints at coffee, taking on notes of it from the caramelization. This recipe calls for the addition of espresso, either in as an instant powder, or, if you don't mind a bit of gritty texture, finely ground espresso beans.
Buttery shortbread is imbued with finely diced pieces of chocolate covered toffee.
Instead of chocolate chips, I used chunks of Hershey's Skor, a chocolate covered toffee bar, in these cookies. Pieces of chocolate-covered toffee add much more than plain old chips.
