Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Cookies

Just like Willy Wonka, the character who inspired these treats, our Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Cookies are just a little on the whacky side! Our chocolate cookie base is filled with pieces of chocolate chip cookie, toffee bits, and semi-sweet chocolate chips, then finished with a sprinkle of coarse sugar and Kosher salt for a sweet and salty crunch on top. Pair these cookies with our Incan Chocolate Puerh tea for an extra-chocolatey extravaganza.
