Toasted Coconut, Toffee, & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last week I was going through our chocolate drawer in our freezer. Yes, we have a special drawer for chocolate and it is packed full:) I found two bags of Heath toffee bits at the bottom. I forgot they were in there. I didn’t want them to feel neglected any longer so I decided to make Toasted Coconut, Toffee, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are loaded!

I like coconut, but I LOVE toasted coconut. Toasting coconut brings out a nutty, powerful flavor that I adore. The toasted coconut and toffee bits create a chewy cookie that is to die for. I wanted an extra kick of chocolate so I stirred in a handful of chocolate chips. These cookies have it all! Josh even declared them as his new favorite cookie. He says that a lot so we will see how long it lasts:)

This is our 100th cookie recipe on our blog! I knew I had a cookie obsession, but WOW 100 cookie recipes? Maybe I need help:) Don’t worry, I am not done baking yet. I have plenty of new cookie recipes to share, so stay tuned. For now, enjoy a batch of Toasted Coconut, Toffee, and Chocolate Chip Cookies-they are outstanding!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup Heath toffee bits
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange coconut in a single layer on the pan. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until coconut is lightly toasted, stirring once. Set coconut aside to cool.
  • 2. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add brown sugar and butter. Beat at medium speed until creamy and smooth, about two minutes. Beat in vanilla extract, coconut extract, and egg. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in toasted coconut, toffee bits, and chocolate chips.
  • 4. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350Β° for 10 minutes or until cookies start to brown around the edges. Remove from pan, and cool completely on wire racks.
  • Note-if you can’t find Heath Toffee Bits you can chop up Heath or Skor candy bars.

  1. 100 cookies is amazing! and these cookies contain all of my favorite things. what a wonderful combination.

  2. These cookies are truly special, I love all the flavor combinations! My hubby doesn’t like coconut that means more cookies for me! πŸ™‚

  3. Freezing the chips is a great idea-especially with chips you can’t get year round! We’ve tossed around getting a freezer for the garage…now I know what I would put in it (I think Josh has major meat plans for it though haha). The cookies look amazing! When we finally meet up- we’re baking cookies!

  27. The combination of ingredients in these cookies sounds absolutely blissful. I can’t wait to make them!

  28. Ok, I may have to grab this recipe from you. Ill be sure to give you a shout out when I do. Awesome photos by the way.

  29. I have a bag of toffee bits and wasn’t sure what to make with them. Now I know!

  30. Sounds awesome, such a great looking cookie, love the cracking tops. I recently discovered I quite enjoy coconut (used to hate it), so I’m constantly looking for new coconut flavoured recipes. And congrats on 100 Cookies :). Hope I get there someday (though it’ll probably be with muffins or cakes :)). Right now, I’m working for a recipe count of 50 :).

  31. Yeah on your 100th cookie. Thanks for sharing all of your great recipes. I amlooking forward to the next 100.

  32. These might be my favourite new cookie too and I haven’t even made them yet! They sound even better than the salted caramel chocolate cookies and those are my current favourite! I’m going to make them this weekend. (and I love that you have a chocolate drawer in the freezer – i have a chocolate section too and people laugh at me!)

  33. Toasted coconut & toffee = heaven! How’s your tummy? Can you handle sweets ok at this point in your pregnancy?

    1. Sweets are still not my favorite, but hopefully I can eat cookies in full force soon:)

  34. coconut will get me every time, and toffee is simply a nice bonus–these cookies have a lot of good things going for them!

  35. Just getting around to this today.Yikes! 3/30 was my birthday, so I was out and about. These look fabulous! toffee and coconut–and chocolate. Perfect! Making these this weekend.

  36. You, lovely lady, are the Cookie Queen. Whenever I want to make a new cookie that I know I’ll love, I always come here! Thanks for another great one!

  37. these just came out of my oven, im chewing as im writing this, THEY’RE SO SO SO GOOD

  38. Made these cookies for the first time today…another hit! My husband who is quite the cookie connoisseur called them, “Delectable!”

  39. These cookies are like crack! They’ve been on my list for a long time, and I just made a batch… so, so good!

  40. I was really excited for these cookies….they smelled great and the batter tasted good too. However they were WAYYYY too sweet. Almost inedible πŸ™ I’m going to go buy some whipping cream to eat with them to tone down some of the sweetness. Next time (if there is a next time) I’ll probably use unsweetened coconut and leave out the chocolate chips because the toffee adds a ton of sweetness.

  41. Just made these and they are awesome! I only had unsweetened coconut and no coconut extract so I used extra vanilla. They definitely loved up to their pictures and comments!

  42. I made these (a double batch) this week for our monthly birthday celebration at work and had 20+ ladies as “tasters”. These cookies were a big hit…I loved them (kept a few at home for the family…hubby loved them too, and he’s not normally a big toffee fan.) The coconut flavor is very subtle, but you get the “chewiness” from the coconut which is a plus…you mostly taste the toffee and chocolate. This recipe is a keeper…thanks for sharing this recipe!

  43. These are my boyfriend’s favorite cookies!! He says they’re even better than his mom’s famous cookies πŸ™‚ Thank you for the recipe!

  44. made these twice already and I’m not usually a coconut person. My husband who doesnt have a sweet tooth loves these cookies. It’s perfect without being too sweet and buttery!

  45. These cookies are AMAZING. Texture and taste is perfect. I just made a double batch and can’t wait to share them! Thank you!

  46. I have been makin these cookies for a few years now and everyone always loves them…..I am about to make them for a sheriff’s department banquet and will need to make them in bulk. My question to you is have you frozen the dough or even the made cookie for these before? I know some cookies just dont freeze well.I would truely appreciate if you could email me with an answer! I hope to hear back from you soon. Thanks!

  47. could someone please explain to me what heath toffee bites are and where I can buy them!

    Thanks!

    I found this recipe a year or two ago and have been making these ever since! At first I didn’t think there were enough wet ingredients (I used a hand mixer and the dough was really thick since it’s full of coconut and chocolate) but the cookies turned out perfect! I’ve never used coconut extract in this recipe and they still taste delicious. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  49. 5 stars
    Great recipe! Luckily, I had all of the ingredients except coconut extract, used coconut oil instead. A delicious combination of chocolate, coconut and toffee.

  50. 5 stars
    I made these cookies the other week and they turned out FABULOUS. I am about to make them again because I can’t stop thinking about them! So so good!

  51. Question:
    Can you substitute coconut oil for butter? How much for the 4 tablespoons of butter?
    Can you sub unsweetened shredded coconut for the sweetened flakes?
    How does it turn out if you freeze ?

  52. 5 stars
    So delicious! I ended up adding an extra tablespoon of butter to help it all come together and they took about 12 min to cook! I will be making these again, new favorite!

  53. 5 stars
    This is my new favorite cookie. Best cookie i have ever had in my life and I can’t wait to make it again.

  54. I have a 2nd batch in the oven because the first one was devoured within minutes. OH MYYYYY they are perfect. Light, chewy, sweet, and very good coconut flavour. Super easy and simple recipe – I was so happy with how easy the coconut was to toast.

    I’m using butterscotch chips because it’s all I have on hand – but ordered toffee chips to do again.
