Triple Chocolate Toffee Cashew Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, slightly softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 bag (8 ounces) brickle bits toffee pieces, roughly 1 1/3 cups*
  • 2/3 – ¾ cup coarsely chopped salted cashews
  • 1 cup Kroger Private Selection dark chocolate chunks (62% cacao)

Heat oven to 375°F. In a large mixer bowl, beat butter, sugars and vanilla until blended. Add eggs and melted unsweetened chocolate and beat well. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture in batches slowly to creamed mixture; blend until combined. Stir in toffee bits, cashews and chocolate chunks. Using larger 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop (or rounded tablespoons), drop cookie batter onto ungreased cookie sheets 2 inches apart. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes or until set. (They’ll harden as they cool). Remove cookies from baking sheet to wire racks. Store cookies in tightly covered container about 3 days or freeze up to 3 months.

Makes about 48-50 cookies.

*You can use the Heath pieces with chocolate on them, but I prefer the bits ‘o brickle without the chocolate so it stands out against all the other chocolate.
