How To Make Butterscotch Toffee Chocolate Fudge Cookies
Moist, very chewy, and soft, these chocolate fudge cookies are made with butterscotch, toffee, chocolate, and a little sea salt. Such a decadent snack!
- 1¼cupsall-purpose flour,spoon & leveled
- ⅔cupunsweetened natural cocoa powder
- 1tspbaking powder
- ½cupunsalted butter,softened to room temperature
- ½cupgranulated sugar
- ½cuppacked light brown sugar
- 1½tsppure vanilla extract
- ¾cupbutterscotch morsels
- ¾cupHeath English Toffee Bits ‘O Brickle
- sea salt,for sprinkling, optional
Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together until combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl using a hand-held or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy.
Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat on medium-high speed until fluffy and light in color. Beat in the vanilla on high speed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
At low speed, slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. The cookie dough will be thick. Switch to high speed and beat in the milk, then the butterscotch and toffee. The cookie dough will be sticky.
Cover dough tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours and up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory for this cookie dough. I always chill mine overnight.
Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes– if the cookie dough chilled longer than 3 hours, let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to make the cookie dough easier to scoop and roll.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
Scoop and roll balls of dough, about 1.5 tablespoons of dough each, into balls. Place on the baking sheets.
Bake the cookies for about 12 to 13 minutes then remove from the oven. The baked cookies will look extremely soft in the centers when you remove them from the oven.
Allow cooling for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. While cooling, garnish by pressing a few more butterscotch morsels into the top of the warm cookies and sprinkling with a little sea salt as well.
Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
