Double Chocolate Toffee Cookies

Double Chocolate Toffee Cookies are made with bittersweet chocolate chips and chopped up Heath toffee bars. The original version, Giant Chocolate Toffee Cookies from Bon Appetit, called for regular chocolate, but over the years I've found that regular chocolate chips work well, too. I also make mine a bit smaller.

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour 35 grams
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ pound Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chips 1 ⅓ cups**
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar (170 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 Heath minis coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup walnuts toasted, chopped


  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  • Combine chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Let cool to lukewarm.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, beat the eggs for about a minute. Add the brown sugar and beat for 3 or 4 more minutes. Beat in vanilla. With a scraper, stir in the melted chocolate/butter mixture. By hand, stir in the flour mixture, followed by the chopped Heath bars and walnuts.
  • Chill the batter just until it is thick enough to scoop (about 45 minutes).
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with Silpats. Parchment is okay too. Drop batter by generously heaping tablespoons onto sheets, spacing 2 ½ inches apart. Bake just until tops are dry and cracked but cookies are still soft to touch, about 12 to 14 minutes.
  • Let cool on the baking sheets for about 8 minutes, then carefully transfer to a rack to finish cooling.


Bittersweet (60%) worked well, but you could even go with a 70% chocolate bar or something even less sweet.
The cookies spread as they baked, the puffed up towards the end. The flattened out a little bit upon cooling.
