I don’t usually make cookies in the summer, especially on hot days, but I couldn’t resist these Toffee Cookies! My best friend and I decided to make them for our families for dessert last weekend and they were amazing!

These Toffee Cookies have a crunchy, yet not sticky bottom, so nothing gets stuck in your teeth. They are a good balance between the toffee flavor and a cookie texture.

What Ingredients Will I Need?

  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Flour
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Walnuts

Helpful Tips for Making Toffee Cookies

  • Cut into bars while still warm.
  • To make the chocolate chips melt faster, make a “tent” (about an inch high) with aluminum foil after sprinkling chocolate chips on top. Let sit for 5 minutes and then spread chocolate chips.
  • Use a wire whisk to sift the flour if you don’t have a flour sifter.


  • Use pecans instead of walnuts.
  • Use semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of milk chocolate chips.
  • Dark chocolate chips can also be used instead of milk chocolate chips.

Final Thoughts on Toffee Cookies

These cookies were easy to make and delicious to eat. I liked that I didn’t have to worry about getting toffee stuck in my teeth while eating them. They tasted like toffee, but were much softer. I will probably make these again at holiday time. Toffee Cookies would be perfect on a cookie tray!
