Giant Bittersweet Chocolate Toffee Cookies

Recipe by Sweet Baboo
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 18 cookies




  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl; whisk to blend. Stir chocolate and butter in top of double boiler set over simmering water until melted and smooth. Remove from over water. Cool mixture to lukewarm.
  • Using electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs in bowl until thick, about 5 minutes. Beat in chocolate mixture and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture, then toffee and nuts (and optional chips). Chill batter until firm, about 45 minutes. (I spread the batter in a 11"x7" glass pan, and when firm divided the batter into 18 squares and fashioned balls by hand and then flattened them -- this made even sized cookies without using a scoop).
  • Preheat oven to 350°F Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto sheets, spacing 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake just until tops are dry and cracked but cookies are still soft to touch, about 15 minutes. Cool on sheets. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.).
