1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
⅓ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1.4-oz. chocolate toffee bars (preferably Skor), chopped into -inch pieces
1 cups chocolate wafers
Flaky sea salt

1) Cook butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, until it foams, then browns, 58 minutes. Scrape into a large bowl and let cool slightly.
2) Meanwhile, whisk flour, baking soda, and kosher salt in a medium bowl.
3) Add brown sugar and granulated sugar to browned butter. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat until incorporated, about 2 minutes.
4) Add eggs and vanilla, increase mixer speed to medium-high, and beat until mixture lightens and begins to thicken, about 2 minutes.
5) Reduce mixer speed to low; add dry ingredients and beat just to combine.
6) Mix in toffee pieces and chocolate wafers with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula.
7) Let dough sit at room temperature at least 30 minutes to allow the flour to hydrate. Dough will look very loose at first, but will thicken as it sits.
8) Place a rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375.
9) Make ping-pong size balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing about 3" apart. 10) Do not flatten; cookies will spread as they bake.
11) Sprinkle with sea salt.
12) Bake cookies until edges are golden brown and firm but centers are still soft, 911 minutes.
13) Let cool on baking sheets 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough and a fresh parchment-lined baking sheet to make 10 more cookies.
