Double Chocolate Pecan Toffee Cookie – Last weekend we returned from our family vacation. My daughter was eager to see her best friend MacKenzie, so right away we set up a play date our first day back. MacKenzie’s mom, Kelly, was so sweet and brought over a big tin of cookies to welcome us home. I didn’t get a chance to eat any of the cookies until after Kelly had left but once I had… well, lets just say I had much more than my allotted share. While one part of me was cursing Kelly for bringing these rich, decadent and sinful cookies into my house, the other part of me was thinking… must learn to make these! Let me see if I can describe them to you – soft, brownie like, nutty, chocolaty gooey goodness all in one tasty little package. I then proceeded to text Kelly and beg her for the recipe, all the while keeping my fingers crossed that it wasn’t a special secret family recipe. Score! Kelly was kind enough to share her recipe and I made quick work of putting my first batch together. Wow, is all I can say!
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE PECAN TOFFEE COOKIES
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tbsp milk
3/4 cup chopped pecans pieces (walnuts would likely work as well)
1/2 cup toffee chips (or Skor chips)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Use an electric mixer to cream butter, vanilla and sugars and mix until fluffy. Beat in egg. At low-speed, beat in cocoa and milk. With a wooden spoon mix in the flour and baking soda until blended well. Stir in nuts, toffee and chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto foil or parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 13 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly before removing from baking sheets.
