cookieNot kidding… these are the so good.  Chewy, rich and kind of addictive.  I got this recipe, the old fashioned way… I googled.  And then tweaked a bit.  The original recipe is from Savory Sweet Life (which btw you can get lost there forever if you are the kind of person who gets lost in cookbooks!  It’s a great site.  I want to try every recipe she posts, and I don’t even cook much.)  But I digress.  Here’s my version:

Serves approximately 4 dozen cookies

Takes about 10 minutes to mix – and 14 minutes to bake per batch!


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar (pack it into your measuring cup!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. coarse sea salt (has to be coarse – table salt won’t cut it!)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup toffee bits


  1. Pre-heat oven to 360 degrees.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar until fluffy (3-4 minutes on medium high speed in your stand mixer).
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and beat for 2 more minutes
  4. Add flour, sea salt, baking soda and baking powder until batter is fully incorporated.  Start on a low speed, and increase a bit once flour is incorporated.  (Should be thick!)
  5. Add chocolate chips and toffee bits and mix until well distributed.
  6. Use a medium size cookie scoop (or form approximately 2 tbsp size cookies) and drop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven – but leave cookies on the cookie sheet for two minutes.  Then lift the paper with the cookies off cookie sheet and allow cookies to cool on paper only for a few more minutes before enjoying!
