Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 36
  • 5 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped fine
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup toffee bits (like Heath or Skor)
  • Maldon sea salt or fleur de sel
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine unsweetened chocolate and sugar, and process for 2 minutes or until fine. Add butter, eggs, coffee and vanilla, and continue processing until fluffy. Scrape down sides.
  3. Add flour and chocolate chunks, and process using on/off pulse until the dough comes together. Do not over process.
  4. Using a tablespoon, drop mounds of dough onto large cookie sheets, spacing 2" apart. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with a pinch of salt.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Cookies should be slightly firm to touch. Let cool for 5 minutes on sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
