Butterscotch Toffee Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Satisfy your largest chocolate craving with these salty sweet butterscotch toffee chocolate fudge cookies! Recipe on sallysbakingaddiction.com

Butterscotch, toffee, chocolate, and a little sea salt for good measure.

It goes without saying that these butterscotch toffee chocolate fudge 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 with you yet! This recipe has no eggs so you can happily eat the cookie dough. It’s simple and straightforward, resulting in a super rich cookie that is almost brownie-like. Moist, fudgy, and very chewy. I like my cookies extra chewy! A little butterscotch doesn’t hurt either.

  2. Hey! So I loved this recipe, I just wanted to tell you what I did with it, since I know you can appreciate it:) Seeing as how we are both obssesed with Peanut Butter!;)

    I did everything exactly as you write it, excpet for putting toffee in it. Instead of the toffee, I put 1/2 Cup of chunky peanut butter. HAS to be chunky, because then when it’s all mixed in, there’s tiny peanut pieces. I melted it for 20 seconds in the microwave before putting it in the dough. Then I chilled for 30 min. And then when they were on the cookie sheet, I used a spoon to make little craters in each cookie……which I…..filled with PEANUT BUTTER!;) And they were amazingggggg. So try that next time if you want to:) Thanks for the awesome recipe. Your blog is amazing, and I am becoming addicted to it;)

    1. Emily…… please come over and bake those for me!!!!!! They sound incredible… probably like the BEST cookie I’ve ever, ever heard of. That’s it, I gotta make them. You are a genius. Thank you so much for writing in, this made my day! 🙂

      1. They WERE totally awesome cookies! I think you will like them a lot,…hopefully lol;)
        You are so very welcome!!

  3. I think that substituting peanut butter chips for the butterscotch chips would be great too (or possibly adding in addition to). boy those peanut butter/chocolate ones sound good. 🙂 I am holding you responsible for me not being able to lose any weight and subsequently having to work out (BOO) (because self control and/or not baking is not an option anymore). 🙂

    1. I have to work out SO I can bake and eat the cookies I make lol. Not a bad thing, I enjoy being active but I also enjoy cookies! Have to balance it out. Thanks so much Amy, PB chips in these cookies would be amazing, I like that suggestion!

  4. Hi Sally!

    I love your site and I’ve made several cookies from it which turned out wonderfully. I was just wondering – why no egg in this one?

    I can’t wait to try it out. I want use mini M&Ms and mini chocolate chips with this base since those are the two things I have hanging around.

    Thanks, keep up the great work!

    1. Brianna, these cookies will be so good with M&Ms and chocolate chips. This is a chocolate cookie recipe I make with a little extra milk, which gives them a little more moisture. There really isn’t a need for egg at all. It’s a recipe from my mom. They’re wonderful! Enjoy.

  5. I have made variations of this recipe over 10 times and each time at least one person begs me for the recipe. I always send them here to this amazing site. Thank you for blessing us all with amazing recipes and please keep up the good work 😀

      1. One more question 🙂 
        Do I put them in the oven without thawing over night? 
        That’s I guess an overall question, how do you determine if you can pop them in frozen or if they need to be thawed before baking? 
        All 6 batches are your recipes. All the cookie dough tastes awesome! 🙂

  6. I figured it’s about time I should comment on this recipe! This is my go-to cookie recipe, I’ve made it quite a number of times and have played with the recipe. The chocolate cookie base is amazing and can support any mix-in that you think would taste good! I’ve also made a mocha version by subbing a half tsp coffee extract for the vanilla and a peppermint version by subbing half a tsp peppermint extract for the vanilla (so 1/2 tsp other extract, 1 tsp vanilla still.) They turn out amazing each time!

  7. This recipe is really similar to your salted dark chocolate cookies, which we LOVE, so these are on my must try list. My question is, why no egg in this recipe? Is it a typo or do you actually not use an egg? And if you really don’t, do you think making your salted dark chocolate cookies would work without an egg too (for friends who have egg allergies). Thanks Sally!

  8. These cookies are delish, and turned out beautifully! I followed the gram/mL measurements instead of the cup measurements. I love the combination of flavors–the chocolate with the butterscotch and the crunchy toffee pieces. It was a great combo. For those who would like to double the batch, a full bag of Heath bits equals the 1 1/2 cups you’d need. I appreciate the make ahead tip! Great cookie recipe! Thank you, Sally!

  9. Such a wonderful cookie recipe! Made these last week for my family and now I will be making them for my boyfriends camping trip. Can’t get enough of these yummy creations! Thank you!

  10. For those baking at high altitude: these work and are delicious! They spread a little but the altitude is to blame. I’ll try to bake from frozen and see if that helps. But they are sooooo goooood!!!!!

  11. Where did this recipe go? The images are still there and underneath there are only the headings (directions, ingredients, etc) but no content.
