Gooey Chocolate Toffee Bars

Most of January I tried to be good.  I only gave you one dessert all month, and that was my birthday cake.  So I think it is about time I shared a sinful chocolate treat.  Just in time for the February #ChocolateParty too! This month the secret ingredient for the #chocolateparty was….chocolate!  That is correct, everyone participating made a “double chocolate” treat.  Pretty heavenly, right?

Heath Toffee Bars

There are certain flavors that I associate with the Christmas season; anything mint or peppermint, eggnog, and toffee, to name a few.  Toffee is one of my favorite things.  I have made it a few times before, and maybe someday I will take pictures and share it with you.  But in the mean time, you will have to live with toffee baked goods, like these and Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. 

Today I am joining some other bloggers in the 1st Annual Blogging Buddies Virtual Cookie Exchange.  This is a fun group of ladies, and we are all doing a cookie exchange today.  Since we can’t do it in person, we are sharing it virtually with you! Check out what everyone brought!

I made these bars years ago as part of a cookie exchange, but kind of forgot about them.  A friend reminded me of them this year, so I got out the recipe and went to work.  My 7 year old and husband loved these.  Usually, my husband can stay away from desserts and has amazing will power, but not these.  I brought these to a cookie exchange I did on Sunday night.  Both my guys said that when I went around the table to pick out cookies at the exchange, I should just pick my own cookies each time.

Trust me, this will be perfect for your holiday tray.  Santa might even leave you a few extra presents if you have these out for him :)  Plus they are super easy to throw together.  Minimal ingredients, quick baking time, and dump candy on top.  Can’t get much better than that.

Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies


Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies | Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

Remember when I made Brown Butter Pumpkin Pancakes, and jumped on board the Brown Butter bus?  Well, now I am driving the bus.  Brown Butter is amazing!!  I think it just might be the best thing since sliced bread.  And, I am pretty sure that my dad agrees, even if he doesn’t know it.

When we were home last week my dad asked if I could make cookies for him.  They bid on these cookies when I did the Colorado Wildfires Bake Sale, but were outbid in the last minute.  Apparently he has been thinking about them since.  I shouldn’t be surprised, I know how much he likes toffee and chocolate chip cookies.  Since I am such a good daughter, I went to the store to get the ingredients to make him these cookies.

These cookies were nothing short of amazing.  The brown butter gives them such a great depth of flavor.  So much more flavor than you get in a normal cookie.  Then you have chocolate chips, AND toffee chips!  They were soft and chewy, even a couple days later.  I am not sure my dad knew anything about the brown butter or what made these cookies different, he just knew he couldn’t stop eating them.  I got a call from my dad when we were on our way back to Colorado, asking if I had posted the cookies yet.  He was raving to people about how these were the best cookies, and they needed to know where to find the recipe.  So here it is.
