Toffee Brownie Cookies

This time of year you can never have too many cookie recipes, especially if you like to make homemade goodies for your sweetie for Valentines Day. Ooey-gooey and rich with chocolate and coffee flavors, these brownie cookies have a dense and fudgy texture that’s just perfect. A topping of toffee chips that melt into the cookies during baking sets them apart from many other cookie recipes out there.

    Drats! I thought you lived in Boston for some reason. I was going to say that your recipes are perfect for groups like the Boston Food Swap, where people bring baked goods (wines or anything else that doesn’t perish quickly) and exchange it for another good from someone else. Do they have something like that in your area?

    By the way… these cookies look bomb!! I’m trying to eat healthy lately and these pictures are not helping!! :’O

    These look good enough stacked on the plate but, when broken in half, the dark chocolate center makes them all the more tempting. 🙂

    I made these a few weeks ago, along with 3 other batches of cookies. These were by far my favourite, and a must-make-again recipe! I froze a bunch, and let me tell you, I have no will power when faced with one of these ooey-gooey chocolate cookies fresh out of the microwave!

    Thanks for the recipe 🙂
