toblerone cookies

in Cookies

If you’re as impatient as I am, you won’t be thrilled to hear that the dough for these Toblerone cookies must be chilled overnight. In the baking world, cookies are akin to instant gratification. However, this baker is here to tell you that some things are worth the wait, so stash the dough in the back of your refrigerator and try your hardest to resist sneaking spoonfuls before the waiting time is up.

Toblerone Cookies | Tutti Dolci

A blend of all-purpose flour and bread flour keeps these cookies incredibly tender and chewy (so does a teaspoon of cornstarch). Aging the dough gives the cookies noticeable depth of flavor; there’s no way to miss the Toblerone, brown sugar, or vanilla. In this instance, cookie delay is sweetly rewarding.

Toblerone Cookies | Tutti Dolci

Toblerone Cookies
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup bread flour
1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 3.25-ounce Toblerone bars, chopped

Whisk together flour, bread flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter and sugars in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla and egg; beat until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in Toblerone. Transfer dough to an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 12 hours, or up to 3 days.

Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/4″ balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 10 minutes, until golden. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

I kind of miss the days of baking cookies as soon as the beaters are pulled from the dough – but refrigeration makes All the difference.

These cookies look heavenly! (I’d definitely have to stash the bowl of dough safely behind my seldom-touched, v8 juice bottles.) :D

There’s only one thing better than toblerone…and that would be toblerone in cookies! Dough refrigerated overnight always gives baked good such a delicious flavor. I bet these are fantastic, Laura!

These toblerone cookies look simply terrific, Laura… As all your creations do.
I wish I had several of them in a plate — just for myself– to eat accompained by a good glass of milk.

Everyone says that chilling makes a difference but I never notice anything different about them. I guess I’m not that good at cookie… differentiation. Or something. ;)

These look lovely! Love the addition of cornstarch.

I chill all my cookie dough these days! It seems like a nuisance at first but then you come to realize that it’s worth it. These cookies look soft puffy and perfect; I love the idea of using Toblerone as a switch from the traditional chocolate chips. :)

Toblerone is one of my favorite chocolate bar and these cookies sound so good. I rarely have enough patience to leave the dough to chill overnight, but definitely worth the wait.
Stunning photos Laura

This is an amazing recipe! A mix of apf and bread flour – always a good idea for cookies if you want two different textures (a more satisfying cookie). And chilling overnight? I can imagine the flavours penetrating each flour granule…so good for baked goods. I will have a hard time resisting sticking my finger into the dough!

I’m very impatient but I’m willing to wait for these. Toblerone was my favourite chocolate as a child because it was from Switzerland and my favourite book was Heidi! :D

I don’t keep Toblerone around the house because I’d eat it all. I wonder if I’d do the same thing with the cookies? (of course!) They look mighty good.

It’s been so long since I’ve had a Toblerone! They would be amazing chopped up in a cookie!

“In the baking world, cookies are akin to instant gratification. ” – I agree…but I agree more with stash that dough in the back of your fridge and wait it out. Results are so worth it. Love that you used bread flour, AP, and cornstarch. My trifecta for perfect cookies too!

Oh my – Jason is a toblerone fiend so he is going to be over the moon when I bake this for him! Although we may be fighting over these cookies – I don’t really want to share.

They look so beautiful, Laura! and the addition of toblerone chocolate is just perfect ;-) I made some chocolate chip cookies a few weeks ago and I froze the dough overnight after rolling it into a log: the cookies turned out perfectly, keeping its shape in the oven, without flattening at all.

Take care!

I’m not sure if someone else asked (or it could be just me to ask this silly question) but is it better to wait over night for all kinds of cookies (if we can)? I think I can wait, knowing that the taste is going to be much better. :) I love Toblerone bars and I want to see how bread flour and all purpose flour blend will be like. Curious… :)
