Salted Dark Chocolate Toffee Cookies

In spite of my constant complaints about baking all the time (I know…I should change my tagline to something more realistic…Like “Bitch bitch bitch…”), I decided I needed to make some cookies. A blogger I follow on Twitter, Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet tweeted about some cookies and a giveaway she’s doing. When I went to check out her post, it featured some mouth-wateringly delicious-looking fudge cookies with sea salt. And I needed to make them. Right away.

I present to you Salted Dark Chocolate Toffee cookies. Of course, I tweaked the recipe, since I didn’t have chocolate chips (I know! I always have chocolate chips…Except this time), and I doubled the recipe because I felt the need to shove a lot of cookies in my craw. That, and two dozen just didn’t seem like enough.

And this is why I bake cupcakes all the time…It’s more work to eat a cupcake then it is to shovel in a handful of cookies!

But wow…These are GOOD. I like the toffee bits for a little bit of crunch, and the salt cuts just a bit of the sweetness. And needless to say, the family and I have almost eaten them all. I think there’s maybe 10 left?

I would like to make them again (in spite of how addicting they are!), but maybe with half a cup of chocolate chips (or chunks) and half a cup of toffee bits. Because they’re just not decadent enough as it is!
