Chunky Chocolate Cookies

1 Comment

We had a cookie bake-off at work, and this was the cookie I entered with…

…and WON with…

They are great cookies, although I think I will improve upon them next time.  They were a smidge on the crunchy side so my liking, I love the soft chewy cookies…

Here’s what you’ll need:

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/3 cup butter-flavored shortening

1 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp espresso powder

1 bag toffee bits

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

What you’ll do:

~ Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy,.

~Add eggs, beating until blended

~Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and espresso powder; gradually add to butter/sugar mixture, beating until blended.  Stir in toffee bits, and chocolate chips.

~Chill dough for 30 minutes at least

~Drop dough by the tablespoon fulls, 2″ apart onto a parchment lined baking sheet

~Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until barely set.  Cook on sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy…
