Traveling Double Chocolate Coffee Cookies

May 13, 2011


Author Notes: I got this recipe from a friend, who got it from a friend of hers so you could say it has traveled,hence the name. I used more toffee pieces than it calls for because I LOVE toffee, so adjusting certain flavors is totally up to the baker. I also used instant espresso instead of coffee for a deeper coffee flavor. So don't be afraid to experiment and enjoy the outcome! My changes/notes in parenthesis. ChefMommy
