“These are wonderful and oh so chocolaty! The toffee adds a really nice flavor to the cookies, too. These are big cookies--probably 4" diameter. So, you can make them smaller if you prefer. Prep time doesn't include time to chill dough.”
18 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl, whisk to blend.
  2. Stir chocolate and butter in top of a double boiler over simmering water until melted and smooth. If you don't have a double boiler, you can use a sauce pan over low heat.
  3. Remove pan from over water (heat) and cool to lukewarm.
  4. Beat sugar and eggs in a bowl until thick (about 5 minutes) using an electric mixer.
  5. Beat in chocolate mixture and vanilla.
  6. Stir in flour mixture, then toffee and nuts.
  7. Chill batter until firm (about 45 minutes).
  8. Preheat oven to 350°.
  9. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto parchment-lined cookie sheets, 2 1/2" apart.
  10. Bake just until tops are dry and cracked but cookies are still soft to the touch, about 15 minutes.
  11. Cool on cookie sheets.
