Mocha Toffee Crescents
45 min
1 hr 25 min


1 teaspoon instant espresso or coffee granules

1 tablespoon warm water

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2/3 cup powdered sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk chocolate English toffee bits

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 teaspoons shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F. Dissolve espresso granules in warm water in small bowl.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine espresso mixture, butter and powdered sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and salt; beat at low sped until well mixed. Stir in toffee bits.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into crescents. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 13-17 minutes or until set but not browned. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Dip ends of each cookie in melted chocolate.

Tip #1

Cookies can be rolled in powdered sugar when warm, and again when cool instead of dipping in chocolate.

These are delicious little bites that disappear quickly! I used to make this recipe regularly out of the Land O Lakes Holiday Memories book at the holidays and had lost it. So glad to find it's still on the website.

These cookies are delicious and beautiful on a cookie tray. One year I found some sugar decorations that were shaped like holly leaves and berries and placed them at the top of warm chocolate and they were so pretty, they looked like a professional had done them. Everyone was impressed. Also some colored sprinkles are pretty sprinkled over the warm chocolate.
