Toffee Coconut Chocolate Chippers

I’m always on the look out for new cookie recipes, or new takes on classic recipes. Often times I will take those recipes and make my own little tweaks and adjustments, as was the case with this toffee and coconut riff on chocolate chip cookies back in 2013 (another relatively early addition to the website).

For these cookies, I wanted to really enhance the flavors of the additional mix-ins. Browning the butter brings more toasty, nutty and caramelized notes which play up both the toasted coconut and the toffee. The coconut extract (or emulsion) gives the coconut a bit more punch and swapping the light brown sugar for dark brown sugar gives a bit more depth to the toffee. And, of course, I couldn’t resist adding just a smidge more chocolate.
