Chocolate Toffee Cookies

I think, from an unofficial poll of my friends, that I am not the only person who finds January and February to be a long stretch.  Christmas is over and all that’s left is the rain, wind and super short days.  Is spring almost here yet?  And there’s not even a snowstorm to make me feel better right now – by the time Jonas hit London, it was just rainy wind!  I’m definitely finding it hard to motivate myself to exercise (apparently I’m not the only one.)  All I want to do is huddle up in a warm place and we’re definitely taking advantage of all the great movies coming out in the cinema.

My oven is also a lovely, warm source of comfort at the minute.  I have very specific ideas as to what I find reassuring.  No to cheesecakes or complicated cake pops – yes to warm breads, cookies and bundt cakes.  These cookies came out of a need for something chewy but wintery – an easy take on the classic chocolate chip cookie!
