How to Make Milk Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease your baking sheets before setting them aside.
- In a mixer, combine the butter and sugar and then mix until creamy.
- Add in the eggs and vanilla and continue to beat until it’s well blended.
- Mix in the flour, almond meal, baking soda, and salt.
- Stir in the toffee bits and chopped chocolate.
- Drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets by the tablespoons.
- Bake in the oven for 9-11 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
- Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- If you do not have chocolate bars handy you can replace them with chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. You will need about 1 cup of either (or up to 1 1/2 cups) depending on how much chocolate you want. you can choose between milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate depending on what you want and either one should taste great with this combination of flavors. Personally, I like the milk chocolate flavors paired with the toffee.
- Make sure that you allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet before trying to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. The time spent on the baking sheet helps the cookies to finish the baking process and harden up enough that they are more stable when transported to the rack. If you don’t wait you risk your cookies falling apart or buckling when the spatula slides underneath, giving you an accordion-like appearance.
Can I use almond powder instead of an almond meal?
To make sure that these cookies turn out perfectly I do not recommend that you use almond powder, whatever that is. That said, you could use almond flour instead of almond meal as the two are pretty similar and there is not much of a difference between the two. You can also just omit the almond meal and use regular all-purpose flour instead.
