Chocolate chip toffee cookies are crisp at the edges, chewy in the middle, and easy to make! And since they're made with melted butter, you don't have to wait for your butter to come to room temperature!

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 8- ounce bag toffee bits

  11. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until light golden around the bottom edges. Cool on

Recipe Notes

  • Uneaten cookies can be stored, layered with wax paper, in airtight containers at room temperature for 2 or 3 days. They can also be frozen in the same manner for about 2 months.
  • You can use toffee bits with chocolate or without—it’s up to you.
  • Be sure to grease your baking sheets well or the toffee bits will stick.
  • To freeze the dough, shape it into balls and arrange on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Freeze for about 30 minutes, or until dough is firm. Transfer to freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months. Bake the cookies directly from the oven; you might need to add a minute or two to the baking time.
