These coffee toffee chocolate chip cookies combine coffee toffee pieces, chocolate covered espresso beans and semi sweet chocolate chips. The toffee pieces melt and become gooey molten pools of caramel when the cookies are baked. The best part is the pieces that melt out of the sides and still remain a little bit of crunch.

Sprinkling the tops of the cookies with flaked sea salt really brings out the caramel and chocolate flavors. A light sprinkling will do. If you haven't tried adding salt to the tops of chocolate chip cookies I definitely recommend giving it a try.  Adding it before baking allows for the salt to adhere to the cookies.

Using melted butter for these cookies adds a slight crackly top. The dough itself will be a bite greasy  when you scoop it out but overall I like the texture of a cookie make with melted butter. I like a chewy cookie so I leave my dough in rounds before baking but if you like things crispier press the dough down slightly into a disk to help everything spread. Also if you like a gooey cookie reduce the baking time for a molten center.
