Coffee toffee cookies are chewy and so delicious. Filled with toffee bits and a hint of coffee that adds a wonderful layer of flavor.

There is something about a chewy cookie that is irresistible to me, especially these coffee toffee cookies.

Even if you are not a coffee drinker, I encourage you to not to leave out the coffee in these cookies. The coffee taste is not super strong, instead it adds this extra layer of flavor that brings these toffee cookies to another level. 

These coffee toffee cookies also make a great gift. I like to package them up in a nice cookie tin or bag along with a coffee mug and give them to neighbors, friends and family.

Recipe tips

  • I love using a cookie scoop or small ice cream scoop for the batter to help make uniform sized cookies. 
  • For a little variation, try adding in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or 1/2 cup chopped nuts. They would even be delicious with a little sprinkle of course salt on top of the cookie dough balls. 
  • Try not to let the cookies over cook. Once they cool, they become nice and chewy.

How to store

Store: These cookies keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. 

Freeze: To freeze the cookies let them completely cool. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet in the freezer for about an hour. Place frozen cookies in a freezer safe bag or container. They will be good for 3 months.
