These rich and decadent chocolate cookies are filled with toffee, chopped almonds and finished off with a touch of sea salt. These cookies get an A+ in my book.

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa. Set aside.

With mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time. Next, add vanilla and almond extracts. Mix until blended.

Slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix until flour disappears. Stir in toffee and almonds. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle dough balls with sea salt.

Use softened butter for cookies and cakes.

Bringing butter to room temperature helps it incorporate better with other ingredients.

    These cookies look delicious. I’m wondering if there is a special dark cocoa powder and if it is easy to find. Also is the chocolate covered toffee from a candy bar such as Heath? Thank you.

      Dark cocoa powder is sold in most baking sections. If you can’t find it, you can substitute regular cocoa powder. And yes, a Heath bar would be perfect.

    These are so good. Love this site. Have made about 3 different cookies from here this holiday season. These were number 2 favorite. I used heath chips found in the bakery isle at the store. The sea salt really does make this cookie.
