Sometimes all you need is a cookie. A chewy buttery, brown sugar cookie with melted chunks of dark chocolate, shards of caramel and flakes of sea salt sprinkled on top. Yeah, that kind of cookie.
The whole inspiration for this cookie came while I was standing in line at Starbucks. I heard that being a Pisces makes me a really bad decision maker, I totally believe this to be true and here’s why.
I rarely buy anything other than coffee but this time the Chocolate Chunk Cookie and the Toffeedoodle Cookie had me squished up against the glass. You’re killing me Starbucks.
Being as indecisive as I am, I flipped back and forth on which one to buy. I finally went with the Toffeedoodle and then to my horror, more decisions! “Would you like that warmed up?” I grabbed my stuff and hightailed it. The cookie was good, but damn it that thing needed chocolate. Getting coffee shouldn’t be so stressful.
So I made my own cookies and now I’m sharing them with you, and they’re pretty freaking amazing.
I bet you even have all of these ingredients in your kitchen right now? Okay maybe not flaked sea salt but you should. It’s like pixie dust for desserts.
Get yourself a really good dark chocolate bar at least 70%. Chocolate chips wont melt like these chunks and remember, we’re not calling this a chocolate chip cookie, these are way too sassy.
You’ll smash up those hard caramel candies with a rolling pin and add it to the dough. You might not see toffee chunks but you’ll feel the chewy crunchy bits when you bite into them.
For all my indecisive cookie lovers.
