I started making these delicious Chocolate-Toffee Cookies 10 years ago when they were featured in Bon Appetit. As a toffee lover, the surprising bite of crunchy Heath bar amidst the chewy brownie like cookie was heavenly. I recently made them for our show house wrap up party and nearly everyone asked for the recipe…even the non-chocolate lovers.

The cookies look best when the dough is chilled well before scooping. I rolled the balls between my palms to make them symmetrical…then used a damp finger to press down any spikes.  Totally an optional step…as your hands will be a chocolate mess. These gems will taste amazing no matter if they’re perfect spheres or lopsided amoebas!

Update: I just plugged in some newer photos years after sharing the original post. Most recently, I baked up a batch for a book club gathering at my house.  The group raved about these chewy brownie like cookies with the added crunch of both walnuts and toffee. Seriously, these Chocolate-Toffee Cookies  are one of the best sweets in my repertoire. Make a batch for your friends and family…you will be asked for the recipe from absolutely everyone who takes a bite.

  1. I love toffee. Thanks for posting the recipe. 🙂

  2. You’d like these, Carol! I finally had to put the leftovers in the freezer as no one else is a big toffee fan (crazy family), and I was ready to eat them for breakfast!

  3. Oh Heath Bars, I love them and incorporated into a cookie is genius! I am going to have to make these in the future. Yum!

  4. These cookies sounds seriously decadent. Have never tried to make cookies with toffee and heath bars together, it sure sounds like a great idea especially when we have company to come over, will put on my “to-bake” list!

  5. look absolutely delicious!!!
