Chocolate Toffee Chip Cookies

Do you remember the Brown Butter Chocolate-Stuffed Toffee Chip Cookie from last week?  Remember those?  The cookies that create that God awful muffin top that sits on the top of your waistline around your jeans.  Yeah those....  Let's refer to those as Bonnie.  As we all know, Bonnie had a partner in crime, Clyde.   Allow me to introduce Clyde.

Clyde looks innocent enough as all good criminals do and then you bite into it.

The fudgy chocolaty texture and the crunch of the chocolate covered toffee chips puts you into a place that is pure chocolaty bliss.

Allow yourself to take a moment to roll your eyes up into your head Paula Deen style while you savor the chocolaty goodness going on inside your mouth.

Let your family know that they may need to leave you alone for a moment or so while you savor the flavor.

Did I mention that I cut up a few semi-sweet chocolate bars and mixed those up inside as well?  I didn't?  Yeah, I went there!  You can see a chunk of chocolate in the picture above.

I don't know what came over me that day.  I was all up in my cookies bizness.

If you're looking for a cookie that will put all other cookies to shame look no further my friends.  You have found it.

Seriously, this cookie is uber quick to throw together and bakes up in no time so they are perfect for parties when you're running low on time which was the case on this particular weekend.  I needed another cookie to whip up for a BBQ with friends and I had remembered Erin from Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts had posted this cookie a day or two before.  Your guests will never know that you used a cake mix for this cookie either.  They are fudgy with an almost brownie like texture and not at all cakey.  You will be impressed and so will your guests!

Chocolate Toffee Chip Cookies
Yield: about 30 cookies depending on how big you like your cookies

  • 1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate covered toffee chips (I used Heath)
  • 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate squares, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add everything but the toffee chips and chocolate chunks to the bowl of an electric mixer.  Beat until well combined, may take a minute or two.  Fold in the toffee chips and chocolate chunks.  Use an ice cream scoop to scoop your dough out and place on a lined baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet.  Remove onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    your version looks AMAZING! i love toffee :)

  2. Chocolate and toffee??! That does sound like the ultimate cookie to me :)

  3. OMG, I'm not sure any of the dough would survive long enough to actually get baked!

  4. Dee, you truly amaze me! These look so yummy I may need to run to the store now and buy some toffee bits.
    And, a side note, I love the changes to your blog!

  5. Ha-the Paula Deen eye roll-hilarious! I was just commenting to someone about the amazing things that you can do with cake mixes and blip then I see this. Delicious and decadent-just the way I like my cookies, yum!

  6. Love the bonny and clyde reference - it's very fitting to these cookies. Looks like I'll have to make both.

    That means I'll have to do a double workout at the gym!

  7. Yep you are right these are definitely the Clyde. Delicious! My plan for cutting down on the sweets is really not going to work out too well.

  8. I love recipes like this that you can easily whip together. Quite frankly more often than not these semi-homemade recipes are better than those that take forever to prepare. I'm saving this recipe to make very soon. I love anything chocolate!

    Sorry it took so long for me to stop by. I'm following you now so I'll be sure to stop by more often.

  9. this is so delicious version, I would love to taste it soon, I have planning to add this to the list of cookies that I will teach to my kids.

  10. Hi so I don't think you want to share do you :P
    These look fabulous and delicious!

  11. Holy smokes. I'm glad I got my bathing suit wearing vacation out of the way before I saw this recipe. These look f a n t a s t i c!

  12. OMG these look soooo good. I love toffee. Great recipe.

  13. Um, wow. I need these in my life! (Bonnie too, Clyde would be sad without her.)

  14. Dee, you must send these to me ASAP!! Gorgeous cookies! The batter even looks like ice cream! Whooooaaaaa!!!!!

  15. Hello my little treats, come to mama! =D

    dont ever leave me alone with your choco chip cookies. I wll appear like a selfish person, I just cant help it around this type of sweets and yours are realy threatening!

  16. I don't know which one I like better - Bonnie or Clyde? They both are nasty little creatures for those of use trying to lose weight! :) Quit tempting me with this delicious cookies!

  17. I didn't know Heath until last Halloween. I never pay attention to American candies before, but I realized that I have a lot of them so I had to use it for some baking. I'm going to keep this recipe and make your cookies when I get Heath again. Looks so good! I didn't know I like toffee that much until I made the dessert with it. Plain is too much, but baking with something is pretty good. I can imagine how delicious these chocolate toffee cookies are...

  18. You are seriously bringing a batch of these when we finally meet in person. I may pass out from joy from eating these. The pic of it mounded up before it's cooked just about did me in.

  19. I just can't wait to try them! they look so decadent and addictive

  20. These look so chocolatey and delicious! Amazing. They're going on my list of things to make!
