This soft chocolate chip cookie with chunks of toffee pieces and chewy caramels is a must during holidays. It’s made with brown sugar which makes a softer cookie. The chunks of toffee and caramel add a nice texture, while still keeping the cookie soft and chewy.

  • Butter: Use unsalted butter for this recipe.
  • Brown sugar: Brown sugar will make the cookies softer.
  • Baking soda: Not to be confused with baking powder.
  • Salt: I like using kosher salt for my recipes but sea salt is fine too.
  • Eggs: You’ll need 2 large eggs for this recipe.
  • Vanilla: Make sure to use pure vanilla extract.
  • All-purpose flour: When measuring flour, use the spoon & level method.
  • Toffee candy: Engish toffee bits by this brand are my favorite to use. If you can’t find this specific brand, any chocolate-covered toffee candy is fine too.
  • Caramels: Use soft caramels for this recipe, like these.
  • Chocolate chips: I like semi-sweet chocolate but dark chocolate is fine too.

Recipe Tips

  • For best results, do not substitute any ingredients. The original recipe was written with shortening but we have since retested and updated the recipe with unsalted butter. Everything else stayed the same.
  • Make sure to use the spoon & level method for measuring the flour.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container for up to a week. You can also freeze cookie dough by dropping it by rounded tablespoon on a cookie sheet and freezing it until the dough is set. Then transfer into a container or Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
