Mixing the Batter

To make these chocolate coffee toffee cookies, start by preheating your oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix together 1 cup of unsalted butter (softened at room temperature), 3/4 cup of light brown sugar and 3/4 cup of granulated sugar until well-creamed. Add 2 large eggs and 1 tsp vanilla extract and beat until smooth.

In another medium size bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal, 2 tsp baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt until well-blended.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in three rounds, beating on a low speed between rounds until all the flour is incorporated. Then add the secret ingredient: 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder. This will elevate the flavor profile of these cookies from great to outstanding. Finally, fold in 1 1/4 cups of semisweet chocolate chips and 3/4 cups of coffee toffee chocolate chips.

Shaping the Cookies

As soon as your cookie batter is ready, use a cookie scoop or a spoon to divide it into 24 balls. Shape each ball into a disk about 2 inches in diameter and place them on two baking sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Space them out evenly with around 2 inches between each one.

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown around the edges but still slightly soft in the center. Remove them from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for at least two minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

Toffee Chocolate Drizzle

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can add a touch of decadence with a glaze of melted chocolate and toffee bits. To make this topping, melt 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler. Add 2 tablespoons of coffee toffee bits and stir until well mixed.

Using a fork or a whisk, drizzle the melted chocolate mixture over the cookies in a lattice pattern, then sprinkle with extra toffee bits. Let the glaze set for 10 minutes before serving.

You can also experiment with other variations, like toffee almond cookies, brown butter toffee chocolate chip cookies, or even espresso oatmeal cookies – the sky is the limit with this versatile cookie recipe. So go ahead and indulge in your coffee lover dream with these yummy delights!

When it comes to making coffee toffee cookies, there are plenty of ways to customize this recipe to your liking. Here are some substitutions and variations that you can try:

– Chocolate chips: If you prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate or semi-sweet, you can easily replace the chocolate chips with ¾ cup of dark chocolate chunks or chips. You could also try adding white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips for a delicious twist.

– Coffee toffee: If you don’t have any coffee toffee on hand or simply prefer a different flavor, you can use regular toffee bits instead. You could also try almond toffee bits for an interesting flavor combination.

– Gluten-free: To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute the purpose flour with 1 cup of gluten-free all-purpose flour and ½ cup of quick-cooking oatmeal. Make sure the oats are labelled gluten-free.

– Espresso powder: If you’re not a fan of espresso powder or don’t have it on hand, skip it entirely or replace it with 1 tablespoon of instant coffee granules. For a more subtle coffee flavor, omit the espresso powder and use 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract instead.

– Brown sugar: Light brown sugar is used in this recipe but dark brown sugar can be used instead for a slightly richer flavor.

– Butter: The recipe calls for unsalted butter but salted butter can be used instead if needed. Just keep in mind that the cookies may turn out slightly saltier as a result.

With these substitutions and variations, you can experiment with creating your own unique version of these delectable coffee toffee cookies.

To get the best results with this Chocolate Coffee Toffee Cookies recipe, here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Use room temperature ingredients: Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature before starting to make the dough. This will ensure that everything mixes together properly.

2. Cream butter and sugar well: When making the dough, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. This will give the cookies a lighter texture.

3. Don’t overmix the dough: Once you’ve added the dry ingredients to the wet ones, mix only until just combined. Overmixing can toughen up the dough and make your cookies dense.

4. Use parchment paper: To prevent your cookies from sticking to the baking sheet, use parchment paper when baking.

5. Chill the dough: Chilling the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking will help to prevent spreading during baking and give your cookies a fuller shape.

6. Consider adding additional coffee flavorings: If you’re a true coffee lover, consider adding some additional coffee flavorings such as espresso powder or dark chocolate espresso chips to really amp up the flavor in these cookies.
