Chewy, sweet and buttery, these Toffee Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are a perfect treat.
Do you remember those Easy Homemade Toffee Bits I made a few days ago? I made them just so that I could create this recipe. This is going to be my cookie for the fall season. I’m just going to say that this may be the best cookie I’ve ever made. The kids disagree and prefer my Ranger Cookies. But there is something about the sweet butteriness of the toffee that I love in this cookie.

I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for in the toffee chocolate oatmeal cookie, but I’m sure they would taste divine with milk chocolate chips. Additionally, the cookies would be even chewier and tastier with a cup of unsweetened shredded coconut stirred in to the batter.

- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cups oats
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup toffee bits
Heat oven to 375F.
In a medium bowl, beat softened butter and both sugars with a mixer until fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time and vanilla. Beat until well mixed.
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda.
Add in the butter and sugar mixture to the dry ingredients and beat with a mixer until combined.
Add in the oats and mix well.
Stir in the toffee and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
On a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, drop 1 tablespoon size balls of cookie dough, about 2 -3 inches apart.
Bake for 7 - 9 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit on baking sheet for a few minutes to cool, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
You might see some of the toffee melting out of the side of the cookie while it is baking. This is normal. You can either push it back towards the cookie, using a spatula, while the cookie is still hot, or you can wait until the cookie cools and the toffee hardens and then break off the melted toffee piece.
