Fans of sweet and salty treats will swoon over these Salted Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Thick, chewy chocolate studded cookies were given a boost of crunch from chunks of Heath bars and a sparkly sea salt garnish.

Welcome to our 3rd month of the Blogger CLUE Society. My food bloggers friends are each assigned to another blogger’s site and must create and share one of their recipes according to the month’s theme. For January, we’re sharing sparkly dishes…like a champagne cocktail, a sugar coated dessert or, like in my case, Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies Dusted with a dusting of glistening sea salt. My blog assignment this month was my sweet friend from way back, Lisa, of Authentic Suburban Gourmet. She had a plethora of recipes that I was dying to try–how to make a champagne bar, jeweled ornament sugar cookies, smoked brown sugar almonds to name a few. I picked out her salted caramel and chocolate chunk cookies but after searching far and wide for the caramel bits, I resorted to toffee bits.

Triple Duty Cookies

These were the perfect treat after a couple weeks away from the kitchen. I made a few sans salt for some to be nameless family members and sent a dozen toffee free cookies along with Bill as he head to Iowa to see his mom. All these palates to please. But the toffeed studded, sea salt garnished gems were my personal favorites.  My girlfriends also gave them rave reviews. I needed a  fast and fabulous recipe and these fit the bill divinely. We arrived home from sunny New Zealand to sub-zero temps and a cold house. Yes, our furnace had picked an inopportune time to take a nap. So what’s a chilled girl to do? Turn on the oven and bake. These were easy to make (I love the twist on one of my favorite cookie doughs from Jacque Torres with cake flour, bread flour, baking soda and baking powder), chewy and packed full of delectable add-ins, plus they warmed my kitchen a wee bit as well. The ideal trifecta: simple, delicious and warming to the body and soul. I couldn’t have dreamed up a better cookie myself! Thanks, Susan, for the splendid recipe!

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups cake flour

Instructions
  1. In a bowl of a stand mixer fit with paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients just till blended. Stir in the toffee and chocolate chunks. Chill dough for 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and using a medium cookie scoop (about 2 tablespoons), place mounds of dough about 2 inches apart.

Let cool on baking sheet for a couple minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in a covered, airtight container.
