Hey, That's Pin-tastic!: Salted Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies

For this week's linkup with AP at I Love You More Than Carrots, I decided to bake for a good friend of mine who just had a baby. I know you are supposed to bring a casserole or something. But I firmly believe a woman with a new baby NEEDS chocolate more :)
I checked out her "Yums for the Tums" board on Pinterest and re-pinned one of her pins. Pinterest definitely made it easier to select a recipe that I already know will appeal to her! It reminded me of a Salted Caramel drink from Starbucks.

And really. It is salty and sweet. Who doesn't like that?

The original recipe calls for you to use chopped semi-sweet chocolate. I substituted dark chocolate chips. Here is my mise en place.

The original recipe also uses a muffin top tin to make giganitic yet uniform cookies. They indicate the yield as 16 cookies. However, I used a cookie scoop and got 4 dozen out of it.

The fleur de sel is what makes this cookie special. The salt and crunch set off the richness of the chocolate and Heath bar bits. If you like salty-sweet desserts, then you will enjoy this recipe!


  1. those look amazing!!! I'll take a dozen :-)

  2. um, those look delicious. Feel free to send me some! ';)

  3. You are a 'sweet' friend! Hehe that's a great idea going to one of her pins for an idea!

  4. Yum. Mr. is obsessed with Fluer de Sel. I also love that the baby monitor is in your mise en place :)

  5. I'm gonna pin this recipe. It looks like a tasty one. I'm curious how that saltiness will go well with my taste buds.
