Toffee cookies

Double Chocolate-Chunk Toffee Cookies


  • 2 boxes (18.5 ounces each) chocolate cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup toffee bits
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350ยฐF (175ยฐC). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil. Mix until well combined. The batter will be thick and fudgy.
  3. Add Toffee and Chocolate:
    • Fold in the toffee bits and chocolate chips into the batter. Ensure even distribution throughout the dough.
  4. Chill the Dough (Optional):
    • If time allows, you can chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Chilled dough produces thicker cookies.
  5. Form Cookie Dough Balls:
    • Take about 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball. Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each for spreading.
  6. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set, and the centers are still soft. The cookies will continue to set as they cool.
  7. Cool:
    • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Once the cookies are completely cooled, indulge in the rich, double chocolate flavor with delightful toffee bits. These cookies are perfect for sharing with friends and family.


  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips for added variety.
  • For an extra touch, sprinkle a few toffee bits on top of each cookie before baking.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh for several days.

Q: Can I use a different type of cake mix for this recipe? A: While the chocolate cake mix is recommended for the rich chocolate flavor, you can experiment with other cake mixes for unique variations. Keep in mind that the results may vary in taste and texture.

Q: Can I use homemade toffee instead of store-bought toffee bits? A: Absolutely! If you have homemade toffee or prefer making it from scratch, feel free to chop it into small bits and use it in the recipe. It adds a delightful crunch and caramelized flavor to the cookies.

Q: Can I freeze the cookie dough for later use? A: Yes, you can freeze the cookie dough for later. Form the dough into balls and freeze them on a tray. Once frozen, transfer the dough balls to a freezer bag. When ready to bake, simply place the frozen dough balls on a baking sheet and extend the baking time slightly.

Q: Can I use a different oil instead of vegetable oil? A: Yes, you can substitute vegetable oil with other neutral oils like canola or melted coconut oil. Keep in mind that using strongly flavored oils may alter the taste of the cookies.

Q: How do I know when the cookies are done baking? A: The cookies are done when the edges are set, and the centers are still soft. Be cautious not to overbake; they will continue to set as they cool on the baking sheet.

Q: Can I make smaller or larger cookies? A: Yes, you can adjust the size of the cookies based on your preference. Just keep in mind that the baking time may need to be adjusted accordingly. Smaller cookies will require less time, while larger ones may need a bit more.

Q: Can I mix different types of chocolate chips for added variety? A: Absolutely! Mixing different types of chocolate chips, such as dark chocolate, white chocolate, or even butterscotch, can add a delicious complexity to the cookies.

Q: How should I store the cookies? A: Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. If you want to keep them soft, you can add a slice of bread to the container to help maintain moisture.

Q: Can I add nuts to the recipe? A: Yes, if you enjoy nuts in your cookies, you can add chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans to the dough. Add about 1/2 cup for a delightful crunch.

Q: Can I make the cookies without chilling the dough? A: Chilling the dough is optional but recommended. Chilled dough produces thicker cookies. If you’re short on time, you can skip this step, but be aware that the cookies may spread more during baking.
