butterscotch toffee chocolate fudge cookies.

Hooray! SBA is now on facebook! to follow me, simply “like” Sally’s Baking Addiction on the right sidebar. 🙂

let’s take a look at these last goodies. butterscotch. toffee. & chocolate fudge. these cookies are decadent.

as i was brainstorming how to use up some leftover heath bar toffee bits from my brown butter toffee chocolate chip cookies, i realized i haven’t shared any chocolate cookie recipes on SBA yet.  i have a go-to chocolate cookie recipe that i found ages ago and have used it several times. this basic chocolate cookie recipe has absolutely no eggs (wooooo! safe cookie dough!) and results in a super rich cookie that is almost brownie-like. moist, fudgy, and very chewy. i like my cookies extraaaa chewy.

(categorized under cookies)

makes 2 1/2 dozen

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened to room temp
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup hershey’s special dark cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup milk (i used almond milk, but regular or soy would be fine)
  • 3/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 cup toffee bits (Heath Bar Bits ‘o Brickle baking pieces)


  1. Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray (or line w/ silpat). Set aside.
  2. With a stand alone mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until light & creamy. Add both sugars & vanilla and beat until smooth.
  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Stir in milk. Add the second 1/2 of the flour mixture. Mix well. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  5. Scoop the chilled dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes and let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet between batches.
*note: keep the cookie dough chilled in between batches. dough MUST be cold.
*note: these cookies will be very soft and may appear undone when taking out of the oven. they will firm up after cooling on the baking sheet, though.


ps- i think you’ll enjoy these cookies too ;)
