  1. Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add parchment paper or silicone baking mats to two cookie sheets.
  2. Step Two: Beat the eggs, sugar, light brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and vanilla until fluffy. In a different bowl, whisk the cocoa powder, flour, salt, cornstarch, and baking soda together. Slowly beat the dry ingredients into the wet ones to form the cookie dough. (Photo 1)
  3. Step Three: Use a cookie scoop and scoop the dough into your hand and then roll it into a ball. Place on the cooking sheet and then press down to make a thick flat cookie. (Photo 2)
  4. Step Four: Bake the cookies in the oven for 15-18 minutes. Let them cool completely. (Photo 3)

How to Store

Be sure to store any leftovers in an airtight container and store them in the fridge. If you want them to be at room temperature to eat, sit them out of the fridge for a short time.

You can also freeze these cookies, but I recommend freezing them without the frosting. You can always add that fresh later.

Variations

  • If you want even more toffee flavor, you can crush up some extra toffee bars and sprinkle them on top as well.
  • Adding heath bar toffee bits and even some extra chocolate chips on top create a chocolate buttery toffee flavor that everyone will love.

FAQs

How do you know that these cookies are done baking?

Once the edges and top start to turn golden brown, that’s a big indicator that they’re done or very close to it.

You can add semi-sweet chocolate chips or even milk chocolate chips to this recipe! Anything that you are craving is a go!
