Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

There weren’t many candy bars that I liked as a kid.

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Skor bars were one of my favorites. I loved the combination of the rich, buttery toffee and the creamy chocolate.

Those candy bars were the inspiration for these toffee chocolate chip cookies. The cookies are soft in the middle with chewy edges. The toffee pieces and the dark brown sugar both give the cookies that rich toffee flavor, and they go perfectly with the chocolate chips.

Tips for making toffee chocolate chip cookies

These toffee chocolate chip cookies are incredibly easy to make.

  • I stir them up by hand – no mixer needed.
  • Also, I chill the dough to help the cookies keep their shape. If you don’t chill the dough, the cookies will be thinner and crispier. So, if you want a chewier cookie, make sure you don’t skip that step.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt or scant 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan.
  3. Add brown sugar to a large bowl.
  4. Pour melted butter over sugar.
  5. Stir to combine butter and sugar. Let stand 5 minutes.
  6. Add egg and egg yolk; stir to combine.
  7. Stir in vanilla extract.
  8. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until just combined.
  9. Stir in toffee bits and chocolate chips.
  10. I like to chill the dough for at least 30 minutes to give the ingredients a chance to meld. 

  11. Using a medium cookie scoop (1.5 tablespoon), drop scoops of dough 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.
  12. Bake for about 8-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
  13. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to finish cooling.

Recipe Notes

*Be sure to avoid packing the flour when you measure. I fluff, scoop, and sweep.

**I like to mix these cookies by hand to avoid over-mixing the dough.

    Hi Kate. Have to tell you, I made the cookies and they were NOTHING like yours. I’ve read over the recipe and instructions several times, and there’s only one thing I did different. My grocery store didn’t have toffee chips but did have the milk chocolate toffee chips, so I used those. Mine were a solid light brown color, they didn’t flatten, and texture was not that of a choc chip cookie. Do you think the chips would have made that much difference? I bake often (too often😊) and have never encountered a problem like this. I’m anxious to hear your input. Thanks.
    PS: I have another cookie recipe that I make very often, that calls for a whole bag of the milk choc toffee chips, and it doesn’t affect the cookie color.

      Hi! I’m sorry to hear that you had trouble with the recipe! I’ve only used the chocolate covered toffee bits once, and I had a bad experience with them. I used them in one of my tried-and-true recipes, and the chocolate melted into the dough and left me with a greasy mess.
      Could you please tell me more about the texture of the cookie? The first thing I think of when a cookie doesn’t flatten is that there was too much flour in the dough, but you said that you bake often, so I’m guessing it wasn’t any of the common issues (old baking soda, oven temp was off, etc.).
