Dark Chocolate Toblerone Cookies – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Cookies were the first thing I ever baked as a kid and they still are one of my favorite things to make.  I really haven’t met a cookie I didn’t liked, or should I say, I homemade cookie I didn’t like.  Cookies are a one-bowl wonder that turn simple ingredients into fabulousness, and these dark chocolate babies with pieces of honey nougat from a Toblerone bar make them that much more delightful.  Chewy chocolaty cookies hot out of the oven are a magnificent  treat and pure joy with a cold glass of milk.

Baking cookies starts with good butter.  I use salted butter because I like the salty-sweet combination in baked goods.  The second ingredient that really matters when you bake dark chocolate cookies is the cocoa powder.  Either Valrhona or Hershey’s Dark are what I recommend because they give this recipe an intensity that’s required when you want a dark chocolate experience.  The chewiness comes from the honey nougat Toblerone, a Swiss chocolate bar that’s been around for ages.  The cone or pyramid-shaped sections chop up beautifully and mix into the dough like magic.  After baking….well what can I say – don’t forget the milk.
