Toffee Crunch Cookies

I am always looking for new cookies to try, especially cookies that involve toffee. I have a special place in my heart for toffee cookies. They are the best! So when I saw Aimee’s recipe on Tasty Kitchen for Toffee Crunch Cookies, I knew I had to make them. I got out all of the ingredients to make the cookies and realized there was actually no toffee in the recipe. I was confused. The cookie recipe sounded delicious, toffee or no toffee, so I proceeded and I am so glad I did.

These cookies are loaded with oats, crisp rice cereal, chocolate chips and marshmallows. After baking the cookies, I discovered why they are called Toffee Crunch Cookies. The marshmallows melt in with the oats and crisp rice cereal creating a toffee texture and flavor. Genius! These cookies are amazing! Josh came home and ate a cookie and even said, “I love the toffee in these cookies.” Ha! I fooled him:)

If you are a toffee lover or just want to try a incredibly delicious cookie-make these Toffee Crunch Cookies! For the recipe and step-by-step photos, check out my post on Tasty Kitchen.

    Very interesting cookies, Maria! I’d have that toffee crunch cookies would have toffee bits in them!

  2. Oh Maria, I LOVE toffee. Seriously me and Heath bars are BFFs. haha :)

    I have a nobake dessert ball/bite recipe for choco chip & toffee cookie dough bites that I always have a stash of in my freezer.

    I’m feeling super tortured right now. I haven’t had a bite to eat yet and these are making me even hungrier!!

    What a fun cookie – I would never think that those two things would melt together and turn into “toffee” :)

    Happy Friday!

    I am in love. Seriously LOVE these cookies. You need to send them to me immediately. Ok. I can wait til after the baby. 😉

  17. My boyfriend would love these cookies. He also has an obsession with toffee :)

  18. My husband would love these with the marshmallows in them. He is obsessed and has started putting marshmallows in his oatmeal in the morning. I think I’d win some serious wife points for making these.

  19. Tracy — July 22, 2011 @ 11:38 am

    These sound incredible! These would be dangerous in my house. :-)

  20. Jenny Flake — July 22, 2011 @ 11:43 am

    How awesome do these look?! Perfect!

  21. Laura — July 22, 2011 @ 12:44 pm

    Do you use salted or unsalted?

    • Two Peas replied: — July 22nd, 2011 @ 1:33 pm

      I used unsalted. The original recipe didn’t call for any salt, but I threw in 1/4 teaspoon because I like salt in my cookies!

  22. Emily — July 22, 2011 @ 2:23 pm

    Have you tried the new Trader Joe’s dark chocolate toffee bar? It’s incredible and as soon as I can get my hands on more bars, I’m going to make toffee cookies with them!

  23. Kathleen — July 22, 2011 @ 2:45 pm

    Holy crunch Batman!

  24. Laura — July 22, 2011 @ 3:03 pm

    Just made a batch and they are AMAZING!! I loved that I had all the ingredients on hand. Perfection :) And I may or may not have burned my fingers eating the melted marshmallow off the pan

    • Two Peas replied: — July 24th, 2011 @ 11:04 am

      Glad you liked the cookies! I hope your fingers are ok:)

  25. Katrina — July 22, 2011 @ 3:16 pm

    I adore these cookies! They sound so scrumptious!

  26. Lucy Lean — July 22, 2011 @ 3:20 pm

    YUM! Are they chewy cookies – I prefer this to a crunchy cookie – you?

    • Two Peas replied: — July 24th, 2011 @ 11:04 am

      The cookies are chewy thanks to the marshmallows and oats! There is a slight crunch from the crisp rice cereal too! A little bit of everything:)

  27. Erica — July 22, 2011 @ 3:57 pm

    They definitely look like they have a great crunch to them! Josh loves crunchy cookies- I should stir up a batch of these for him!!

  28. Jen — July 22, 2011 @ 5:50 pm

    I am always on the lookout for recipes that involve toffee. I cannot wait to try these and share them with the toffee-lovers I know! (Of course, I also like a cookie that doesn’t involve frosting, but that’s the lazy butt in me.)

  29. The Café Sucré Farine — July 22, 2011 @ 5:57 pm

    These look amazing! I am addicted to toffee! How fun to have a recipe that doesn’t use toffee but turns into toffee!! If you are a toffee fanatic, you will probably also love these cookies –

    they are a toffee-shortbread cookie but they do use toffee, I might have to try them with marshmellows!!

  30. Darla @ Bakingdom — July 22, 2011 @ 10:45 pm

    These sound wonderful! Thanks for the recommendation, Maria. :) Your photos are so sweet too!

  31. Esi — July 23, 2011 @ 2:16 am

  32. marla — July 23, 2011 @ 7:35 am

    Love that there is rice cereal in these cookies as well as that sweet toffee :)
