Bittersweet Chocolate Chip and Toffee Cookie Recipe


This grown-up version of everyone's favorite chocolate cookie is just delightful. With the added bite of the bittersweet chocolate and the crunchy sweetness of the toffee, your guests will be amazed by how the plain-old-chocolate chip cookie was transformed into something memorable. Online baking and pastry classes offer aspiring chefs an artful outlet for creating updated versions of classic favorites.

Bittersweet Chocolate Chip and Toffee Cookie Recipe
Yields: 3 dozen cookies

1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla 
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk 
2-1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt 
1-1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup toffee bits (brickle) 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large mixing bowl, cream together margarine, shortening, brown sugar and sugar. Mix in vanilla and egg and egg yolk until combine. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and toffee. 

Drop by tablespoonful onto a large cookie sheet (preferably lined with a silicone baking mat.) Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges and tops of cookies are just golden. Let rest on the cookie sheet 2 or 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. 


  1. Hey there Mel! This really looks delicious. I'm definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my Food Handler Certification.

  2. Eating food varieties high in sugar and salt, makes us need to eat more food varieties of a similar sort. Quick food sources and food producers have dominated the craft of making food sources that are agreeable and along these lines habit-forming.
