Toffee Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Hello world!! I am back! If you haven’t heard from my various social media platforms, Brad and I just welcomed our sweet baby girl into our family. I actually went into labor the day I posted my last recipe, Cranberry Orange Porridge! It was certainly a surprise, but we are all doing well and I am finally getting around to cooking again… little by little (C Section recovery is no joke, people!).

I jumped back into the kitchen just to make these decadent, chewy cookies for you guys (and myself), because I love you and you deserve to eat this cookie dough by the spoonful (like I did).

Try to avoid eating all the dark chocolate before it goes into the dough (it’s a challenge, I know), because I PROMISE the melty pools of chocolate are worth the wait.

I LOVE THESE COOKIES. They have just the right amount of crunch and chewiness, and they aren’t overly sweet. Plus, that little hint of sea salt? It’s pure magic.

And because I just can’t resist, here’s a picture of our sweet little bean! Her name is Mia, and we are absolutely in love with her chubby little cheeks and fuzzy hair. She’s pretty darn cute!!

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did, and let’s all cross our fingers that I get all the holiday recipes up that I want to this month! Happy baking!
